Pilates……even the pronunciation has the faint but malodorous smell of Feng shui. Why am I driving in the cold to a Pilates class you may ask? Well that’s a very good question. Some people say that Pilates improves one’s core strength and I have a reason to work on my core strength. New Years Day is 2 days away. My plan has been laid, deposits have been paid. Optics have been upgraded. Notes and contacts are organized. I’ve doubled my aerobic activity to prepare for the relentless pace of 2011. It will be both exhilarating and exhaustive, My “ABA Big Year” is about to begin!!!! I’ve been waiting for this for over twenty years. Now it’s almost here. I’m ready.
