Although I’m middle-aged, I have very young children … yes, I’m blessed 🙂 One of the great things about young children is they never tire of running, jumping and playing. It’s great motivation for me and I try to join in with whatever they’re doing … it’s great fun.

- it’s a great shoulder warm up
- did I mention it’s fun !!
