Don't Forget Your Lipstick
I have been getting up early most every morning this summer and heading out with my heavy hands to walk about 3-4 miles in my neighborhood. This morning I wasn't feeling energetic at all, but I managed to haul my dead body out the door and trudged down the street. About 3/4 of a mile into my walk I passed a woman I see most every morning on my walks. As she passed me I was struck with how nicely she was dressed. She was not wearing what I would call classic workout wear at all. She was dressed in a spangled blouse and black leggings. She wore a cute beret and huge bangle earrings. She was even wearing make up and PERFUME! I was about bowled over by it. I found the whole thing pretty comical, but I'll tell you, it got me through the rest of my walk and I didn't once think about how I hated being out for a walk this morning. I'm pretty sure she is out every morning, like me, just trying to get some exercise, but she does it with such style.
