I’m coming FIRST out of my Fitbit friends!
I’d like to take a moment to write a ridiculously silly thank-you speech.
Firstly, I could never have done this without the lure of the dog park. Without all the cute doggies in the park, I would never have had the motivation to go walking so regularly.
Relatedly, I’d also like to thank in particular the dogs who’ve taken a particular interest in me: The tiny schnauzer. The chunky black labrador. The grey mottled Great Dane. The black mutt by the dog pond. The uncontrollable shitting Jack Russell. The overexcited poodle pup. The joyful mud-covered blue Staffy pup. The red and white short-haired collie with the hiker. And most of all, the black and white border collie who came to me twice to give me a reassuring nose and lick on the hand when I was feeling really down. I remember each of you.
My osteo, whom without I’d probably still be in pain. The nurses and doctors who looked after my gross knee after my big fall in February.
My Fitbit friends for the competitive challenges.
And lastly, Tony, my husband, for encouraging me and helping me out with the cardio side of exercise, which I’ve never really liked until now.
