My car needed an oil change. You might be thinking, What does that have to do with walking?
Well, when weather permits, I drop off my car at the shop in the early morning using the key drop, and I walk the 4 miles back home.
Not all walks are as scenic as the one I took last week, granted. But that’s part of the appeal of walking — taking in the scenery, no matter what it might be.
And a note about walking safety: Whenever possible, one should walk against traffic. That enables you to see what’s coming at you and react more quickly if necessary. On my walk today, I was walking with traffic — but based on the very wide shoulder and the sidewalk/walking path, there was enough of a buffer.
Where are you walking today?
