Success Stories: Just For Fun

Golf and Walking
District of Columbia
Rise, age 64

Twenty years ago, my husband introduced me to golf. I had zero interest in learning how to play, but I wanted to find an activity that we could both enjoy doing together. He took me to the driving range, taught me the fundamentals of the game, and after that I was hooked. I've been playing seriously for the past 15 years. My husband and I try to make a date to play together at least once a week, usually every Monday. We go to local courses, but sometimes we travel for long weekends out of town to courses anywhere from Pennsylvania down to North Carolina. I love golf because it helps me relax and unwind, while at the same time helping me to move my whole body. It's a fun way to be active. I have a great time catching up with my husband, and I always feel better afterwards.
