It just feels good to walk. It feels normal to me once again, to wake up at 630 am and get dressed, make my way to the track and get my 3 miles in, and then some. I have been doing this once, and on several occasions, twice a day for the last ... Read more

I am slow. I walk slower than almost anyone else at the track. Sometimes I question why this is, since I have been walking pretty regularly for almost 4 years now. But I am just a turtle. To me, I feel as though I am walking pretty fast. B... Read more
