With the beating I have given my body over the years through sport. I have finally called it quits. Though stopping contact sports does not mean stopping exercise. Instead I changed gears and I am glad I did. I now go for what are to me, long hikes. Seeing nature and getting lost in it can really centre a person who sits in front of a computer for more then 50 hours a week. Living in the Hamilton area I am very fortunate to be able to escape on the Bruce Trail whenever I want. It is a beautiful path carved and ready to be hiked all year round. So get out there and see how what you are missing!
