I wasn’t sure I’d get a walk in at all today. My To-Do list took most of my time and attention, so I postponed the walk until evening. By then, some awfully dark clouds covered the sky and the wind had picked up, so I figured I wouldn’t get a walk in at all before it rained.
But when the Chicago Blackhawks had a second goal scored against them by the Boston Bruins in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, I made the split-second decision that it would be a good time for a walk.
The house had a grumpy enough feel because the game was only on the radio (we don’t have cable television), but when the Blackhawks started losing, I decided I’d rather brave a few raindrops than stick around until the Blackhawks hopefully caught up. So I grabbed the youngest (who’s not a hockey fan–or a fan of any sport, for that matter) and a couple of umbrellas and we headed out into the dusky rainy neighborhood.
I scored with a good walk; the Blackhawks, unfortunately, did not score at all.
Good day, good walk!
