As a past time, walking comes 3rd to only reading and listening to music for me. I have always loved walking. For many years, I was car-free and walked everywhere and then I bought my 1st car and boy did the weight pile on! But that was eons ago. And the in-between could be a book:-) So long story short, I am getting my walk back on and enjoying it. After getting off night-shift, I thought, I would jump right back to my routine walks but I tell you even good things take time to adjust to.

But anyway, 3 months down the road, I totally feel my walk coming back. I walk 3-5 times a week mostly around the neighborhood in the morning and then a long walk on one of my off days on a nearby trail. Tuesday, the temperatures were nice--upper 30s and I took a nice leisurely walk. Yesterday and today, have been much cooler and have necessitated a brisk pace. I sure do love a brisk morning. I layer and bundle up. The wind has been strong but I push myself out the door and what do you know, 35-45 minutes later, I have 2+ miles walk. What could be better?

Well, a nice brisk evening such as now. Sitted right by the window cracked open, feeling that cool fresh air:-)

Here's to Fall! emoticon emoticon

It's also kinda fun to walk and SEE all the things you miss as you drive too I think. you notice who has pups ... where its really an uphill or flat (as uphills in cars kinda just don't exist haha) ... AND ... you come home feeling pretty good about yourself :)

By the way, I love the background on your page.

    I used to walk everywhere too, and I'm just starting to get 'my walk' (and bike and hike and swim) back on emoticon .

Thanks for an encouraging post!

I wish you well on your journeys and hope you connect with nature in the ways that invigorate you~
