    This is my latest challenge. Three months ago a friend of mine bet me I couldn't complete a local half Marathon walk within the four hour and forty minute cut off time. So, Sunday I will be walking 21 & 1/2 kilometers (about 13 miles) all up hill. They bill it as the world's toughest half Marathon, but I don't think it is quite that bad. Least I hope its not :) The event

    That's quite some walk you'll be taking. Best of luck to you.

    Pace yourself on the way down too. That's where it'll get to your knees :)

    Earlier this year my wife walked the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. She walked 500 miles in 39 days. I stayed home and sat on the couch.

    This 100 year old still uses the computer and has just finished the 2017 Calendar 135 copies, 15 pages, nearly 2000 pages printed on my c120 or workforce 30 printers...one helluva lot of work, and then collating, punching, binding with spiral spines and then shipping the entire mess to California. More work and time taking than you can imagine.

    BUT...Accomplishment...is better than Icing on the Cake.
