Yes, Virginia, miracles Do happen.

BLOGNEWS. January 2010 Edition.

..............................."and the skies opened up, winged angels flew down from the heavens, and all around was heard "Alleluia!" "Alleluia" "Alleluia"............................. All this, Saturday, January 16th, 4 p.m.ish.

Local woman, M. T. took part in what can only be considered, well, a miracle. The incident took place in a local area gym this past Saturday. M.T. had willingly participated with her Beloved for what was to be her usual, run-of-the-mill, half-hearted effort of a workout. Very commonplace, quite lackluster, really.

She nonchalantly did all the upper-back and arm exercises previously instructed by her master, the infamous "K".

M.T. later admitted that after completing her upper body exercises, she would have honestly and happily returned to her home. But much to her chagrin, her Beloved, was not done HIS workout.

M.T. glanced over and saw the treadmill. She viewed it only as an easy means to pass the time. She figured about 15 minutes should fulfill the minimum requirement of what others would call a "workout." She hopped on, adjusted the volume on her new Ipod and started walking. 5 minutes passed. She adjusted the speed on the treadmill to 4.4 and was surprised to see her feet "jogging'. She did 200 steps or so of "jogging". OK enough of THAT, she thought and reduced the speed back down to a brisk walk. AH! MUCH better. 5 more minutes passed. Suddenly, a terrific, Latin-beat tune came on and without either hesitation or thought she put the speed back up to 4.4- now to 4.5.....GO FEET GO!!!! She kept her gaze down, watched her feet in amazement as they kept taking steps forward, again and again.....her breathing steadied, her pace naturally following the beat of the song, a grin, a swipe of her sleeve to wipe the sweat off her brow, BIG smile, a chuckle, and then it happened..........

......the skies opened up and angels appeared singing "alleluia" and our very own M.T. had what can only be categorized as a miracle. She jogged, non-stop for an entire song length. Happily dripping, grinning from ear to ear, without collapse, without fear, she ran.

Stay tuned for further updates as the saga continues.
