Sandy says she exercises for her health and to lose weight.  She currently is having some knee and neck issues as well as arthritis problems so not exercising like she likes.  She is doing Silver Sneakers exercise class at Titan Fitness and walking when she can.  Before her knee got bad she was walking with a great bunch of ladies at Rotary Park on Saturday mornings.  (We miss you Sandy!!). She also likes walk on McCulloch.
Sandy says walking has helped her high blood pressure and cholesterol, COPD and arthritis.  She just got an injection in her knee so she is hoping to get back to walking regularly.
