First Slow Jog in Years

Chris Abraham

I’m finally up to speed to actually start my slow jogging.

I had only been walking until now. Just making sure I was fit enough and ready.

Turns out I am, even though I do take breaks and sometimes walk.

A good start and I hope to keep this up on a daily slow jog/walk/run for the rest of my life! Huzzah!
