STAY­ING STRONG

Australian Geographic Outdoor - - Your View - Ch­ery­lynne Bullen, via email

I’m a 61-year-young woman who is chang­ing my life­style to im­prove my health. I have hashimoto thy­roidi­tis and with the med­i­ca­tion I am on it de­pletes my bone den­sity so I must walk to keep my bones strong. I try to walk 6km at least four days a week and I have joined this won­der­ful and car­ing walk­ing group who walk 10-18km each Satur­day in a dif­fer­ent area on the Sun­shine Coast. Four of us are in the plan­ning stage of walk­ing the Por­tu­gal Camino in Septem­ber so now the pres­sure is on to get fit and have the cor­rect equip­ment to help me en­joy this walk with­out in­jury. Read­ing AG Out­door has cer­tainly en­cour­aged me to keep on keep­ing on and that it’s not over when you are 60! So thank you AG Out­door for your won­der­ful ar­ti­cles.

Con­grat­u­la­tions Ch­ery­lynne, you’ve won an awe­some The North Face Duf­fel bag (RRP$170).
