4/21 Walk through the Trees

Monday, July 09, 2018

Last weeks heat kept me from working out. It was over 90 and I work outside. I live on a mountain and the summer breezes keep the house so cool that we aren't air conditioned - we own only one small fan. Last week's heat left me exhausted and drained. Working out would have been an option if I there was an air-conditioned moment anywhere but...

This morning the air was cool and I woke up ready to hike. Darling Husband and I wanted to join. DH hasn't exercised since last fall and my 90 lb Bernese Mountain Dog is missing a leg. I was at first a little peaked. The hike turned into a walk then into a stroll as the tripawd needed to stop and lay down every 100 feet.

But the 2.5 miles through the woods, on a summer morning, up and down hills at a simple pace was wonderful. I usually pound through the path as hard and as fast as I can but today it was family, love, air, sun and shade.
