In spite of the foreboding sky, my sister and I went for a long walk at Blanchard Park. Except for a few droplets of rain here and there, the weather was ideal for walking, cool and with just a slight breeze.
I'm not sure how many kilometers we walked, about 7 or 8. I remember that when I first tried to walk there in March, I could not walk one kilometer. In fact, my sister had to go get the car and pick me up at an intersection because I couldn't make it back to the parking lot. I wheezed terribly as I walked and would sit on every park bench I could. My sister made me notice that today, I didn't even sit down once. Didn't need to. And I stopped wheezing a long time ago. It's encouraging!
