Central Park Fitness Test
This is a picture of my 85 year old Mother and I on a recent family vacation to New York City.
My Mom has kept herself fit and active. She has traveled with us on many vacations. I have taken her to the top of mountains in Banf and across rock formations in Moab. She is an elderly person who is enjoying a long and big life. On this New York City vacation, we walked from the south end of Central Park, up into Harlem for a well-deserved lunch of beer and Italian cuisine. She traversed six floors in the Empire State Building stairwell. Every day required multiple trips up and down subway stairs.
I hope and pray I have inherited every single amino acid of the genes that code for this vitality.
