Sounds like the perfect way to ring in 2013 Christine.  Not sure I could make it with my knees, but I'd give it the old college try.  Best to you for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2013.

Christine, I'm trying to get on the wagon for food and exercise, and this would have been a great place to start.

Thanks Pat!  Of course, the Blue Hills - or whatever walking trail is near you - is open 24 hours/day, 365 days a year so it is never too late.
