There are many people to whom I owe great thanks and they deserve to receive kudos for all they’ve contributed to the quality of my life. I could go back many years to builders I represented for decades, but that was then and this is now. Those kudos would work both ways, for sure!!!
However, at my age, thinking about health and fitness is a prime thought every day. It needs to be in the forefront of how I think and act every day. Without good health, nothing else matters, and most of us in the real estate business do not realize this until we hit a certain age.
Having prefaced this post with those thoughts, my kudos go out to my trainer, Jenn Miller, from the YMCA. She single-handedly brought me from a state of rather poor muscle tone to my present condition of being in excellent shape.
Training for a month at a time in order to lift twice during that month was carved in stone. The training was intense, consistent and progressive. The lifts began with just the bar that weighs 45 pounds and progressed to a 1RM of 200 pounds. At my age, it took me 2 years to accomplish it.
This is a story that many have already heard and is now boring to read again. It’s become a factor in my life that is deeply embedded to the point of my continual desire to give back to others, and that’s what I focus on now.
This is an entry for Margaret Rome’s contest of giving kudos…I don’t expect to receive points for this because it is not real estate related. I have been retired from listing property for 13 years. I semi-retired at 59 and only market for the team….at a certain point, health trumps everything, and I was fortunate enough to have reached that point before it was too late!!
