  • Finally finding fitness

    I wrote in these pages in June that I was attempting to get back in decent physical condition. Four years ago, when I started my new career as a sports writer, I was able to get into pretty good shape. I started running and riding in February of that year because of the mild winter we had. By October, I was doing long bicycle rides without much problem. I did a 40-miler that capped off the year and was very happy with my state of physical health.
