Fit Folks: Mary Lou Plumb, 87

I keep fit by leading a Safe for Seniors exercise class three times a week in our club house. I do what I have learned on my own, having had rehabilitation myself. Starting in May I also lead exercises in our outdoor swimming pool. Some people like the water, some people don't, so from May through October I do both. I also try to walk a mile a day. These things keep me fit. I love helping other seniors do the same.

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 e-mail it to pleblanc@statesman.com.
