Sometimes I'm asked why I love to exercise. I guess there are those who feel that exercise is a burden or that they don't really enjoy it. For me, exercise helps me to feel alive in my body. I can actually feel the blood flowing and my heart pumping after a good workout. But more than that, I have an image ingrained in my mind--one of my grandfather of blessed memory. Dr. Louis Rothman, or PaPa Lou, as we fondly called him. My grandfather was a retired physician who knew what it took to stay healthy. He exercised every day of his long life. PaPa Lou lived to the ripe old age of 101.5, and he walked using his own two legs until the very end (without a cane). In fact, PaPa Lou in an interview said that the best form of exercise was walking. I am blessed to have had such a wonderful role model who literally was able to STAY STRONG FOR LIFE.
