Wow, 15,000 steps--super impressive, @Klassy! I managed just over 9000 yesterday, according to my fitness watch, and I just over half of what you are, so clearly need to step my game. Glad to read that you weren't in real discomfort and I'm sure that being at a rally with lots of other excited and enthusiastic folks kept your focus away from your hips and on whatever might have been the purpose of the rally. And it involved escalators--those can be really tricky, I agree. Anyway, congratulations on all that activity--hope you've got a smug smile on your face today and are resting up and taking it easy. You deserve it!
