Why I Love Chris & My Fellow Test Pilots

It is amazing to me how profound and far reaching the lessons of this project effect my life. I see everything through new eyes! This morning I was reading my weekly "Urban Fit Facts" that my Aunt Sarah sends me from her trainer every week and the quote of the week made me think of why this time is different then all of the other times I have "tried" to get in shape and live more healthy! By the way, note that tried is in quotations! John Singleton told me a story of the first time he meet his business partner at Promotion Fitness and he was riding the exercise bike and reading the paper. He claimed to be working out and she said, "No, your Not!" So I used tried with some liberties! Anyhow, I digress! I think that surrounding your self with people who truly desire to be healthy is the most powerful tool in our battle for wellness! So I will leave you with the quote that put me in the mode to post today. It is as follows:

"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much." Helen Keller

Thank you Chris and my fellow test Pilots, and of course Margaret and my friends and family who have supported my change!

That's a great quote! I'm pretty stubborn and at times tend to think I should be able to do everything on my own. I actually know that is not possible nor is it healthy! I also appreciate the support, advice and help that everyone has given. Matt, you're quite an inspiration! Keep it up!
