New Commitment

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

I used to walk a lot with my husband, but had to give that up several years ago due to problems with my right ankle. My ankle is so much better now though, and I have decided now is the time to get back to my love of walking.

So my new commitment is to walk around the perimeter of our small town by the end of summer, maybe sooner. :) That isn't a huge walk, maybe 2 1/2 to 3 miles, but would be huge to me. I started yesterday by walking from my home up to the main street through town and the plan is to increase that distance by a few blocks as I can. Wish me luck and good walking weather! :)

    Sounds like a terrific goal. I truly enjoy going for my walks. I use that time as my chat time with God. Knowing he is walking right beside me makes me feel wonderful. Wishing you success I know you can do step at a time. emoticon

  Sounds like a lovely walk! I will be waiting to hear what you see on this new journey. emoticon We use to always find coins scattered in the grass along our walk to the beach,it became a real live treasure hunt to my children! Walking alone one day I meant this sweet older woman who told me that she began doing it years ago to just have the fun of imagining the children's delight! emoticon emoticon
