I realize a huge percentage of New Years’ resolutions fail; I usually don’t even bother to make them. I have, however, decided to resolve this year. This is not a big life-changing resolution. It’s not some generalized thing either, like eating healthier.
My resolution for 2013 is to walk daily.
It shouldn’t be too difficult, I keep telling myself. I’d walk the dog, if we had one. Since I’m not a dog person, I’ll have to walk the non-dog. At least I won’t have anything to scoop up!
I may not go very far. I may not go very fast. I’d like to walk outside, but if it’s nasty weather, I’ll do it inside. I may walk to a destination. I may listen to music. I may listen to books. I may just listen to the birds. I must keep walking. At least until March.
Time of Walk: 7:10 AM
Temperature: 17° F (11° windchill)
Weather: Clear and Crisp
What a lovely January day.
It was quiet, but for a few birds. Being New Year’s, I only saw one car go by, one other person walking, and one dog, sitting quietly in his invisibly fenced yard. I heard a couple of dogs inside their homes though. I wondered how their owners could be sleeping at all. I took my non-dog and walked quietly home.
