my new fitness regime

Oneonta, which is the small town in New York where I live, is also known as the "City of the Hills." Given that we're on the western edge of the Catskills, this is an apt description.

To give you, dear reader, a sense of how I maintain my girlish figure (heh!), my walk to my Hartwick office. With pictures.

My car -- a '98 Saturn -- is on the other side of the giant Cadillac Escalade. Yes, the Caddy has Faculty stickers. Yes, teaching must be quite lucrative for someone. Not me, mind, but someone.



It's scenic, certainly.


In the upper center of this shot, you'll see a very small white tower. My office is under it. Dead ahead is the student union.





When I stopped to take this picture, I could hear the woman who had been just behind me for most of the climb wheezing.


My office mate.


Again, at least it's scenic. That white building off in the middle distance is part of the SUNY-Oneonta campus. Thankfully, I don't have to walk there.


Hell I'm wheezing now!

Nice! Reminds me of Carlow College in Pittsburgh. When I worked there, my "commute" looked a lot like yours.

Even though I grew up in pgh walking those hills, these hills kill me. Perhaps I'm just old.

I'm wheezing just looking at those pictures. Love walking, hate hate HATE stairs.

I'm with ya, 'dora. Love the walking. Hate the stairs. But my thighs are turning into a force to be reckoned with.
