Walking...with a purpose

I’m heading out for a walk.  Yes, you read that correctly.  My husband is home today, the weather is beautiful, and I have mapped a route, thanks to my friends at Google, that gives me a destination.  I think that walking, for the sake of walking, is good for many people but not for me.  I need to be going somewhere, even if it is somewhere contrived.

So, today, I mapped the route to the closest shopping center, 1.2 miles each way, and then I can pop in and get a soda at the mid-point.  I will enjoy the scenery en route and the company of my husband,  but the motivator will be that soda. 

Time to get those socks on and head out. 

Talk to you soon.
