It's still winter here in northern Illinois, but yesterday I had to get outside for a walk. We have a moderately hilly neighborhood and a walking path through a nature area, so I can vary my route each time I walk.
As I trudged up the first hill, against the 22 degree, 10 mph winds, I tried to figure out why I didn't take more walks this winter. (Yes, I was being a bit sarcastic with myself!)
We didn't have much snowfall, so the sidewalks were clear.
The temperature rarely got below 20.
I have lots of cold-weather wear: scarves, hats, mittens.
It's winter. I decided to stay inside. It was easier!
AHA! I caught myself!
Today I'm hoping to get outside for another walk, even though it's windy, snowing, and the sky is really gray. After my quick (it was COLD!) walk yesterday I realized that I like being outside. I need to get outside.
Now that we are in March, and the First Day of Spring is actually listed on the calendar, I can't wait to get outside and enjoy a walk!
