There's an insane person living in my neighborhood. Ok I don't usually talk about my neighbors but I'm seriously worried about this person. I live in Arkansas and if you've never lived in Arkansas you might not understand, but it's hot here. It's hot, oven-like burning hot. It's oven-like burning hot with a pan of steaming water in your face hot. It's been over 100 degrees for days and the humidity feels like when you walk into the shower room of a swimming pool - know what I mean? On my deck it's always a little cooler than in the front of my house (the deck gets a breeze off the lake) and it's been 101-105 the last two afternoons on my deck. This neighbor that I'm worried about runs about 4:00 every day (that's 3:00 sun time people). He runs in the hottest part of the day on the asphalt, which multiplies the heat exponentially. (I was a math major so I can use big words like that and know what they mean.) Now, I'm all for exercising. I don't, but I'm for it. I will totally support you if you want to do it. I will cheer you on, encourage you and pray for you. I'm still not gonna' do it. But I think he has graduated from healthy to obsessed.
Last night at quilt guild I mentioned this to a fellow stitcher. She has a friend who goes to the gym for 5 hours every day. Five (5) hours a day! Girls I am almost 62 (October 1 so get those cards ready to send) and my friend is 70+ so her friend is in the same bracket. Five hours a day. And if she isn't at the gym it's because she's playing golf. And if she isn't doing either of those she's on the practice green practicing golf.
Let's weigh in on this - how many of you exercise? Tell the truth, cause it's just me and I won't tell your family, your friends or your doctor. Do you exercise...ever? How much? What kind? And do you think I should call the white coated guys for my neighbor?
