Sunshine and walking!

           A few days ago the sun came out. Ohio is usually gray and nasty this time of year, but for some odd reason the sun was out and shining and warming the air. I had some time to kill from my full time job to my part time job so I decided to go to a the local Reserve/Dam/Park and take a walk. We’ve had a lot of flooding lately and the water was really high at the Reserve. I wanted to see if the water had gone down so I decided there was not better time to take a walk at the Reserve.

            It was a great walk, but I was getting some odd looks because I was still wearing my work clothes. I didn’t have time to change; if I did it would have cut into my walking time. I decided to just change my shoes, pull up my hair, put on my headphones and sunglasses, and button my cardigan so it wouldn’t blow right off of me. So there I was, dressed in my nicest teacher clothes and Nike sneakers, taking a nice walk in the afternoon sun.

            I was able to get in a 45 minute walk that would have only been about 25 minutes if I had taken the time to change. It wasn’t super hot either. There was no major concern of getting sweaty and stinky.

            It was so nice out. I don’t think anyone could really blame for squeezing in a walk before having to go to work. I think everyone that saw me was wondering why I was dressed so nicely. I wanted to tell everyone I passed that I was on my way to work and decided to take a walk, but that probably would have freaked them out.

            Overall, perfect weather, perfect walk, perfect (work) clothes. I made it to work on time and I still looked fantastic. Here’s to hoping there are more nice days for outdoor walks.

  1. I'm starting to love walking outside, especially in nice weather! Pre op, I would have just stayed inside and found something to do inside. Now I cant get enough outdoors!! Here is to spring!!!
