Day 12: An inspiring story

Day 12: An inspiring story

Good morning Challengers. Welcome to day 12. Today I want to tell you about a good friend, but to keep their identity private, I will call this friend Celeste. Celeste lives midtown Toronto, around Dufferin and Bloor, and most days rides her bike to her job downtown to work. Well, one day last week, Celeste had to take the Go Train to a meeting and was unable to ride her bike to work, because she would be getting a ride home from the meeting from a colleague.
But, here's the inspiring part...because Celest missed her morning outdoors time biking to work, she intentionally arranged her schedule to fit in a 24 minute walk (she knew because this has happened before) to Union Station, to catch the train. 
I found that story inspiring how Celeste was able to work the outdoors into her day with intention and a little planning.
How can you add some outdoors into your day on days where it doesn't naturally fit into your routine?
That is the real challenge.
Until tomorrow Challengers-have and outdoorsy day

I would like to talk about something I witnessed in town over the last several weeks. As I mentioned previously, we had a Polar Vortex. It was too cold to walk to the grocery store, let alone just sit outside all day. Which is what a member of this town had been doing for months.

My Winter Walks

I am just back from a walk along the country road where I live, a road bordered by fields and stands of trees. My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
