HBO — To MikeK RE: Working Out

MikeK: Well, DFO, that’s a true statement that Marc (Stewart, of the Coeur d’Alene Press) and I have in theory been walking a few days a week. But I’ve been either late or AWOL the last few times, so I can’t say that the girth is declining. To your point about the enemy, of course I’d prefer to walk with Erica Curless any day, but since I know she’s a marathoner I have to keep a more manageable pace (sorry, Marc!) By the way, former reporter extraordinaire Keith Erickson is there every day I’ve been out and he’s running like a fiend looks to be in great shape. Don’t know what he’s doing these days, but whatever it is he looks prosperous and healthy.

DFO: I made a New Year’s resolution to take my walking seriously this year. So far, I have — almost 160 miles in a little over two months. I’ve been charting the miles because that gives me incentive to keep going. Not a lot of weight has come off. But I am down 10 pounds since the beginning of winter. And I’m feeling very good. So, here’s the question for you folks. Did you make a New Year’s resolution? And have you stuck to it?
