Walking is my main exercise, though I want to run. Allergies/asthma have gotten in the way of running so I am working on a little at a time. I walk on a track across the street from my house. That way a)I don't have to drive anywhere and b)I don't have traffic to contend with if I walked on the road. (No sidewalks in rural TN!) I also do weights a couple of times a week. emoticon

Don't stop believin'

I walk around my flat suburban neighborhood - they are building some new houses nearby, about a mile out, so me and the dog will head that way tomorrow morning. No "fun" walks all week (sad dog) because I was too busy with work - that's enough of that, I need to get back to my early morning before-work walks!

I walk because I want to signal my body to start growing again, to stop the decay I let set in - and I just feel good when I walk - historically, I was a big walker/hiker, all of my life, then I let some lifestyle changes get in the way - for like a dozen years - so am trying to back to my younger self :)

I started walking so that I could,start running. I had to get myself stronger. I am now running every other day. Soon, I will be running every day. So far, I am very motivated because of some weight loss and loss of inches! emoticon

That's too funny. I too love to geocache. Found one once that was staged as a bird feeder. They even glued bird seed on the glass making it look full!. I also have to agree with you in that i'm not one who likes to walk in a complete circle,ie a track. I like to feel like I'm accomplishing something or going somewhere. Usually take the dog for a walk or walk in a different neighborhood just to people watch.

So Yesterday I was in Vancouver taking my mother to see doctors - I imputed caches near the Dr. offices into my GPS.(read my blog) I think the people in Vancouver must be more creative than people in Squamish. The caches are so well disguised in Van. yesterday I gave my first favorite award. I found the location quick and easy but the cache itself was another matter - the cache was a piece of paper in a small zip lock bag under a "fridge" type magnetic. I was looking for a container like a screw or thimble.
I was searching a garbage can when a lady came up and said excuse me and dropped a doggie bag of poo in it - she must have thought I was crazy. I was so close the cache was just a few hands away but I was looking in all the wrong places for a wrong type of container..

I do not usually walk just for the sake of walking - I am on a mission.
I am taking the dog out - or going shopping - or geocaching or I am going for a hike.

What is your Reason? What do you accomplish?
