Gratitude

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Gratitude
Choosing to count my blessings and to "dance in the rain" , I have become a more kind, gentle and generous being; (a work continually in progress, I admit!) Treating myself and others with kindness is healing.
Enjoy your steps today, the splash of sun, and the whispers (and roars) of the wind...

Still trekking!

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

Still trekking!
A Sparkfriend , Susan, asked me how day three of trekking went. Day three and day four were great! I feel like I'm flying! LOL I've picked up my pace and am getting such a great workout. Since the weather has improved here in MN, I've met more walkers along the road. I've received lots of smiles, but as of yet, no one has asked me what I'm doing! That's all right, as I know that one of these days I'll meet the same walkers, and they'll have trekking poles!
The sun is warm, the sky is so very blue, the birds are singing, and Spring is on its way!

    You're so right. There's a walking group that we pole-walkers used to cross paths with every Saturday afternoon. They always looked at us kind of funny, but now - a couple of years later - they almost all have poles, too! It's contagious!

    This is my 5th year of trekking. I love it. Winter,Spring, summer or fall I am out there. People often ask how are you ski poles but I really don't care. I love them. I feel like I am flying.

Keep up the good work. Enjoy.

I'm trekking!

Sunday, February 28, 2010

I'm trekking!
A Spark friend introduced me to the sport of Nordic Walking! I'm nearly bursting, I'm so excited about it! I have two good walks under-my-belt now and must say that I've felt nearly Olympian while walking with my trekking poles! LOL I'm looking forward to the time(s) when others will ask me just what I'm doing, giving me the opportunity to tell them about this great sport. Since I have just two walks completed, all I can say is that I've had an exhilarating time; I enjoy the new challenge; and feel that I'm working my upper body while walking, also! And, I can't wait for walk #3 tomorrow after work!
