Firing Up Spring in Azerbaijan with Woolx

The tinge of smoke drifts down narrow streets and through alleyways that connect apartment buildings with the small produce shops and grocery markets that carve out their existence in the irregular spaces between.  Small boys rush by, laughing as they push and jostle one another.  The gathering darkness, however, seems to hold no alarm.  Men

Week 12 Of Getting Fit at 50 With Woolx

Wow the weeks are ticking right by! Week 12 of Getting Fit at 50 (3 months!) came and went in a flurry. It was a bit off week for me as I didn’t do anything special other than what I had been doing. I have been pushing it more on the treadmill and am running

Week 11 Getting Fit at 50…Still plugging along

Week 11 of getting fit at 50 was a mixed week. I took 2 days in a row off and missed my goal both days. I made up for it though on the weekend with 2 good days and still averaged slightly over 10,000 steps a day. Not my best week but not my worse

Calling Baku Home…Woolx In Baku

It’s been a haul.  The famed city of Baku, distant and mysterious, is not a place found just down the street.  One way to reach Baku – nearly 6,000 miles and nine time zones east from New York – is through Istanbul.  From Istanbul the next path of flight cuts eastward, straight across Turkey, skirting
