Day 4: Spread the Neighbourhood Love

Day 4: Spread the Neighbourhood Love

Day 4! We are doing good. How have you done so far? Robyn decided to join the challenge and yesterday she left for work half an hour early and walked all the way to the subway station (about 2km).  Good work Robyn!

One way I get outdoors a few times a week is walking to the post office to ship packages. I try to build it into my day around 4 in the afternoon, and it takes an hour, maybe a little longer (if I stop to visit...which I almost always do).  I feel lucky to do this partially because I LOVE my neighbourhood, and partially because it is a perfect segue into the evening supper, hockey, family part of my day.

My local post office is in a part of Toronto called the Junction. The Junction is full of eclectic stores, fragrant restaurants, and bustling coffee shops. The walk there is along a side street with lovely houses, and big trees, then into the shop part of the Junction, where I can get a coffee, a treatie, ship my packages, and pick something up for dinner. The perfect mix of peace, and activity. 

What part of your day would you, could you fit a daily walk? Does your day have a rhythm that a walk could bridge? What's your neighbourhood like? Send us a pic at #outdoorseveryday #yourneighbourhood #junction

Everyone put on your mittens, hats... even scarves.Then go outside.Robyn

Good Day Challengers.
Wow! Somehow February started without me really noticing and here we are at February 7 and for the first time in over 10 years, I don't have the challenge up and running. To be fair I was hit hard my the flu last week, but I'm here now and ready to be challenging :)
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
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
