For six months I've been carrying this little "Y" membership tag around on my key chain. It was in totally pristine, unused condition - - - because, well, to me exercise is a four letter word.
But because I'm "all about" being healthy (those of you who know me in person, STOP CHOKING on your laughter right now!!!) I decided to join my friend, Diane, for an early Saturday morning walk around the Y gym track.
Here is my PROOF that it actually was morning and that I actually did go - - - if you know Marion, or if you Google Planet our fair town and search out the Y, you will see that I HAD to be facing East to take this picture, so it has to be a sunrise and not a set - - - - that's all the proof I've got!!!
Also, check out the time stamp on this post, (I PROMISE I didn't alter it) take into consideration the fact that I had to go to the Y, let my feet do the walkin', return home, edit and resize my photos, and THEN make this post - - - - and you'll see I had to be quite an early bird this morning!!!
For those of my blog readers who used to live here in our fair town - - - this is our new YMCA, just opened this fall. Can you tell what famous Marion Icon was revamped to become the Y????
By the way - - - that is my candy-apple red Wisconsin Badgermobile Durango in the parking lot on the right side of this picture - - - further proof of my presence there.
This used to be the Marion Coliseum, home of the historical, famous Marion Easter Pageant. It has been restored and refurbished into a really lovely Y. I'm SO GLAD they kept the architectural details on the face of the building.
They added this new wing on the south east side, just in front of the river.
Now for one last shocking announcement before this post is finished:
Diane and I have made plans to walk two days during the week (BEFORE SCHOOL) and Saturdays. It is our new "routine."
I'll let you know how it goes - - - -
