It is hard to stay fit for hiking and climbing in the mountains, so in the Georgetown area I walk and jog to prepare. Jogging helps especially with breathing at high altitudes, but having your legs in shape is equally important. The photo shows me at the 13,983-foot summit of Stewart Peak in the LaGarita Wilderness of south central Colorado. I was with a group of Colorado Mountain Club members when we climbed this peak in August 2010.

We're looking for Central Texans who keep fit with interesting activities. Tell us — in 100 words or fewer — about yours. If you have a photograph, include that as well. Send your name, age and contact information to Pam LeBlanc, Austin American-Statesman, 305 S. Congress Ave., Austin TX 78704 or email it to pleblanc@statesman.com.
