I went on my "llama" walk today for my lunch break because it's just so slow at work today... needed to get some movement in so I don't fall asleep in my cubicle. Of course the fitness minutes logged is an obvious plus.

The local zoo is about a half mile away from my office building, and it's a pretty convenient walking area with a nice park and trails - you'll see plenty of other office types out for walks in the middle of the day in their suits and business casual collared shirts. (I mostly match them working in a business casual office... thankfully we're a little more casual here and I am often in flip flops or converse sneakers) But the best visual treat of all for me is the zoo - the llamas are kept right along the very edge of the zoo and the walking path goes right by them. So if I walk fast enough and have enough time, I can make a longer loop so that I walk past them - hence my calling it the "llama" walk. Now I have the llama song stuck in my head...

    What fun to be close enough to the zoo to walk there and what an added bonus that the longer walk takes you by llamas! That's great incentive. When my son was a baby my largest customer was near the Santa Barbara zoo and we'd walk there to have lunch watching the flamingos, it was great.

    I love the zoo (as long as they have good habitats). Unfortunately I don't work or live close enough to one for that kind of walking. Sounds like fun though!

    I would love to work close enough to our zoo to be able to walk past during the day! That would definitely be a motivator :)
