Always in my life I have been a very fit
person. As a child I was playing outside our
home most hours of the day, and walking
with my father forever.
As a teenager I was regularly walking everywhere.
Later on I was attending dancing and ballet classes.
Other times I was playing tennis and golf.
Since 2000 I was constantly going
to gyms; and for the last few years I went
back to walking on a daily basis.
