Run Chickens Run: Exercise @ the Library

Alice and Joanie B. try to get to the gym, but after working all day (or the evening shift) at the Milpitas Library - the gym is the last thing they think fact...

...The last time Joanie B. made it to the gym, her trainer had NO MERCY -- as you can tell by this photo Alice took (while faking a stretch) from her yoga mat.


Needless to squawk about -- this is not a nightmare they wish to revisit...



BUT - how to keep their girlish-chicken-figures while working at the library???


Ever the top-knotch research library-hen - Alice found an advertisement for a great video on YOUTUBE -- The Betty Glover Library Workout - check it out:


Alice: BAWK! Only problem - The Betty Glover Library Workout is from 1987 on VHS!

Joanie B:  Wrrawwk! Looks like a good workout - if you can time travel to 1987 - or even 2007 when maybe there were still a few VHS machines around...

Alice: Chook, chook, chook! We should try a library ebook for exercise:

There's no denyin' - or lyin' - we need to exercise in order to live a happy, healthy life.  You can try a gym - or you can try the library - SCCLD has a vast collection of books, DVDs, ebooks, and more for your exercising pleasure.
