Exercise. Do you love it or hate it, or simply tolerate it because it's good for you? My take on it has fluctuated in each direction over the years, but one thing I know for certain: I'm soooooo much happier and content when exercise is a part of my daily life.
In the first issue of House of Fifty we ran a story on walking, featuring a running/walking group based here in Oregon, Sole Sisters. I participate in their events, and am busy training for the half marathon in May and hoping to get on a team for the Hood to Coast event in August. (The walking versions, fyi!)

I've been training with my friend Nicole, who wrote the HOF story and recently introduced me to the RunKeeper app. It's fantastic in my opinion, despite mixed reviews at the iTunes store.
It tracks time, pace, distance, route and even calories if you wish. I am particularly found of the kind voice that provides updates at specified intervals, which I find encourages me to keep moving at a decent pace.
And I said a year ago I didn't want a smart phone....ha, how times have changed!
Do you have a favorite app that helps you get moving?
