Keep Moving is dedicated to my grandmas.  My grandparents have always been a huge part of my life.  I was lucky enough to know all four of my grandparents and two of my great-grandparents.  Many of them I knew well.  Throughout my life, I grew up listening to the stories of their lives, seeing them enjoy retirement, and learning that getting older doesn’t have to be scary.  As they aged they had full lives complete with travel, family, and friends.

I owe a lot of who I am to these people who shaped me and played a significant role in my upbringing.  It’s one of the many reasons that I dedicated Keep Moving: Take Steps to Relieve Pain & Improve Your Life to my grandmas.  In different ways their examples are part of the reason that I move and love physical activity so much.
