Day 13: guest post

This morning’s post is from my hockey buddy and amazing coach Ren Tashiro. Thank you Ren for sharing your outdoor practice with us today.

Walking residential streets is one of my pleasures, and now a habit.  I used to hate walking, instead taking my bicycle on errands or to visit friends.  Somehow in March 2020 I got the idea of adding an afternoon or evening walk to my daily routine of morning runs, and I am still walking three years later, circling the quiet, safe streets on my nightly outing.   Usually the circuit is uneventful, but occasionally there is a chance encounter - a neighbour, a proffered box of books at the curb, or a nocturnal animal sighting, including of a coyote loping down the road ahead of me last spring.

Long term mobility and wellness are important, big picture life goals for me.  With them in mind, I intentionally, and now habitually, braid in daily movement outside, using that time as a means to connect with others, with nature or for solo reflection and reconnection with self. xo

I've reached out to other outdoorsy people to share some of their winter insights, so I'm excited to see what outdoorsy shenanigans we can get up to this year.

Day 30: goodbye until next year

Over the years this challenge has gotten me out the door more times than I can count-and I’ve always. Yes always, felt better for it because to quote my good outdoorsy friend Renee. Getting out the door is the hardest part. ( I may be paraphrasing
