Hello!

Well, I feel like a complete idiot. I read your blog and responded to it in the middle of the night while I was not at my best game, shall we say.
Normally, I think to check out the person's page before I respond to a blog, but NOOOO...not this time. LOL

Who am I to even begin to offer you advice?

I'll just sit back and learn from you from now on.

Oh, and I see that you train off-season at Run-Tex! That was where I took my very first running class over a decade ago...Run-Tex in Austin, actually. What a great thing they have going there.

And I see that you are fighting lupus and rheumatoid arthritis as well as "meno-paused metabolism" (great way to express it). I can't tell you how much I admire you. I despise lupus and rheumatoid arthritis and destruction they cause to the human body. I'm glad you are fighting back against them.

Press on! I wish you well.

Josie

Yes time is always the big factor. I start Tai Chi Chaun as a result of my practice of Chi Running. I started Chi Running as a result of my becoming a runner. I added Qigong as a result of my Tai Chi Chuan.

Each of these require time, and the purpose of this change in my life was to have more time (live longer) to spend with the next generation. Time is not just the time to do it, but the time to do it right. It takes more time to be still and focus so that each of these is a mind, body and spirit activity, with each an equal partner.

Yes, finding time is certainly one of the issue we must each resolve and balance.

Thanks for stopping by

Popie
