Why I Exercise - Cheri's Reason

Early this week I was grocery shopping using one of those smaller two tiered carts. After finishing the check-out process, I proceeded out the door toward the parking lot. It was snowing and cold so I was moving fast! All of a sudden my shopping cart wheel became jammed in a pavement crack and came to a dead stop. The motion forced my legs into the back of the cart and hurled my body forward, over it. Fortunately, I was able to catch the cart and my body - pulling them both back to an upright position. Except for a couple of bruised legs, I was okay. This little incident made me very grateful for all the hours I'd spent at the gym working on balance and strength training. This could have been a life changing event for me. It's why, at 71, I choose to continue exercising!
