'Seth, You've Got Arthritis, Now What Are You Going To Do?'

"I'm Going To Disney World!"

I spent last week in Florida with my family on a trip to Disney World with the little ones (seeing Disney through children's eyes is so much more fun than as a grown up!).

There's ordinary wear and tear of the body -- and there's Disney wear and tear.

The latter is much more painful.

I know this because I spent last week in Florida with my family on a trip to Disney World with the little ones (seeing Disney through children's eyes is so much more fun than as a grown up!).  We wore our pedometers and clocked an average of five (FIVE!) miles a day walking through the various theme parks.

We all remember the commercials about winning the Super Bowl -- and "going to Disney World!" -- but frankly, playing in a football game would hurt a lot less than trekking through a theme park on a steamy August day.

Nevertheless, despite an aggravated back, sore knees, and a light head, the trip was well worth it.  I just wish I had trained ("conditioned?") better before the trip because it definitely was no easy task.
