I have been a walker for many years. We own a treadmill and I have used it occasionally, Erik uses it daily. I however much prefer to walk outside.
Other than our Wisconsin Dells trip, I have walked daily all summer. Most days I head out in the morning and my route takes about an hour and a half. It really is good for my mind body and soul. Occasionally Liam will join me but for the most part I walk by myself.
Yesterday we woke to a gray sky and predicted rain. I chose to walk anyways knowing that I would get soaked. It was a gentle soothing rain and I really enjoyed it.
