What are you up to? Mitzi Bault answers in miles and turns
Mitzi Bault is a family hero. She's a cancer survivor with a zest for life few others have. Keeping fit is a big part of her arsenal to defeat cancer. Walking is her first option for keeping physically fit. This article is a glimpse into her successful plan to accomplish fitness goals. It isn't meant to be the complete regimen. There are other aspects we hope she'll share later.
Next earlier What are You Up To? story: Walk Adair!!! - Writer finds activity tracker helps her get in steps by Jelaine Harlow
By Ed Waggener
from an interview with Mitzi Bault
When the question was posed, if you knew the answer when one Adair Countian asks another, "What Are You Up To?" Mitzi Bault may give an answer in 'turns' or 'miles."
Her way is different from that of Jelaine Harlow's, who tracks her prescribed daily Walk-for-Health on an Activity Tracker and starts her day with before-work steps at the office.
Mitzi Bault's way is to go to Haven Hill Cemetery on Liberty Road, get fresh air, take in fantastic views, and try to get in the day's steps in one place. She's not a Luddite, but she prefers to have only as much technology as necessary for her safety. As with most walkers, she's very tolerant of other's ways, but she can almost be her grandfather, of whom, Mitzi's Dad said, "There's the right way, the wrong way, and E.P.'s way." Mitzi isn't as teutonic as E.P. Waggener was, but she'll give bullet points on why her way is best.
She does have fallback walks. She has measured distances around her yard, as well as to and from her house to her mother's and to the mailbox at the end of her private road, McKinley Lane.
And, while Haven Hill remains her favorite walking venue, she's a huge advocate of sidewalks. "I hear so often that rights of way and easements are what's holding back the city, county, and school board from just getting the job done and pouring sidewalks. I'd love nothing better than to have safe sidewalks all the way to Lindsey Wilson and on to town," she said. "Why it is not already done is beyond me."
