"Start by doing what's necessary;
then do what's possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
~Francis of Assisi
When I adopted Tynan it was necessary to take him for walks so he could pee and poop. I didn't have a fenced yard. Tynan's pure joy while walking and the bond he and I developed through our walks, led me to begin to make time for us to walk longer and farther together. Eventually, I needed to get in better shape to keep up with my incredibly fit dog. I joined a gym. That decision made possible many turning points in my life. It was at that gym that I took my first Pilates class with the teacher who eventually trained me in several of my Pilates teaching certifications. I also met the friend who became my marathon walking partner. She, Tynan and I logged in thousands of training miles together over the years. After my fall, many doctors told me I might not have recovered as quickly or at all were it not for being in such good shape. So goes my story of necessary to possible to impossible. All made reality from walking my dog. Thank you Tynan.
