Staying Active

Guest post written by Clarice Hairsey

I'm a firm believer in staying active. You're only as old as you feel, and even though I'm 68, I'd swear I'm not a day over 45. At least, that's what my body says. I've made a concerted effort to keep active even though I'm retired, so I can keep up with my grandkids, the little rascals. So what I do is take a stroll around Central Park every day.

What's the point of having this great big park in the middle of the city if you don't go enjoy it? I think the city-planners thought the same thing, because they put in the most gorgeous walking paths. My favorite goes right by the paddleboat lake, since it's great to be by the water. Since I've been doing this walking more avidly these days, I'm thinking about investing in miracle ear hearing aids.

My sister recently got them and swears by them, so I'm thinking about giving them a spin so I can enjoy my walks even more. I think tomorrow I'll swap the routine, though, and going down to battery park at the very tip of the island. It's beautiful there--you can see the Statue of Liberty and everything. It's good to be a New Yorker.
