Hi everyone. I had the most amazing experience this morning on my walk that I wanted to share. I live in upstate New York, a small hometown community where, in today’s world, we lock our doors at night but feel pretty safe out in public, although I try to keep my walks and runs on sidewalks along busier roads. There is a local motorcycle group that gathers every year for an event called “American Pride Ride” and as I was walking through our small quaint village, passing by me was a NY state trooper car and following behind was about 75 motorcycles some with the American flag attached and flailing in the wind. Being an aspired writer and working on a book about working out and journaling my thoughts went to being grateful and content with this wonderful beautiful country we live in. When I walk I keep in mind “it’s not about losing weight, it’s about being healthy” and I try to keep that as my focus. The purpose for my walks is to help me build up to running (I have a great plan I will share in my book), I had built up to a “walk 4 minutes, run 2 minutes” combination until surgery date came about for removal of skin cancer on the side of my face. Doctors orders were to do nothing for 48 hours then no exercise, bending, or lifting for a week. Today was my first day back at exercising starting off with a 30 minute fast walk.
