I've been a walker for over 15 years. I was a racewalk with 11.9 miles. But had to quit because of chronic back pain. I live in a very rural town with aout 300 people. I use the trendmill alot cause of the problem with mountion lions, bears, rattlesnakes(which I killed one last week). I love to be outdoors. I love to vegatable garden, my flowers ,sweep snow and just be outside. My husbad and I are raising our 4 year old granddtr since my daugther returned to school in Albq.
