In my quest for the next road that I am going to be traveling down, I am returning to one that I used to frequent but gave up once I started distance running...


A few years ago, I used to get up most summer mornings and walk 3 - 4 miles with my mom. Once I started training I simply didn't have the time, and we stopped doing it. And I really do miss it. It was nice to get out and get a little exercise, but what I really enjoyed was the hour or so a day to talk to my mom. I'm really looking forward to getting back to that.

Because of my work schedule, and in an effort to escape the heat, we usually got going around 6:00. However, I don't work on Fridays, and the weather hasn't been that warm lately, so today's walking session starts at 8:00.

And right now, at 7:30 AM, the outside temperature is a whopping 37 degrees! I didn't know I was going to need my winter coat to walk in the middle of May. The really crazy thing is that I over heard a few people saying that the high temp on Monday was 91.

Now that's insanity!


  1. ha! welcome to my world. walking can be QUITE as strenuous as running, I have learned over the past 8 weeks! Good for you!

  2. Walks are great source of exerice. Great job...and yes, it's been too cold lately. Craziness!

  3. I like walking too, and it's easier on your joints.
