I've been walking consistently for the last 5 years or so, averaging around 4 miles a day with a day off here or there.
Walkers, what I am wondering, have you ever found that when you are out walking with friends and/or relatives such as shopping or visiting a zoo or on vacation visiting tourist shops that before you know it, you have managed to distance yourself from your buddies without realizing you left them behind.
That invariably happens to me, even though I am not walking fast, in my opinion. I have to be sure to walk behind the group I am with, or before I realize it, I am a block ahead and wonder where they want.
The most humorous time this happened was in NYC, when my children, their SO's, and my wife were walking with me as we headed to Penn Station for our trip back to Boston. I was two blocks ahead and wondered where the heck I was and where the rest of them were.
