Morning walk

Morning walk
Originally uploaded by undines
I have become addicted to my morning walk. The route isn't that special or remote, though I hope to branch out, and it's only about 4 miles total, but it's the first exercise I have actually looked forward to for a long time. When I go to sleep at night, I'm actually excited about getting up early to walk; I don't even have to set the alarm. (Having a cat who thinks that only slackers sleep past 5 a.m. helps, of course.) Hearing and seeing the pheasants (squawk-AWK!) and quail is a nice side benefit, too.

I hope to progress to running and thus to get in shape for some bike rides on the hills around here. They don't look like much, until you're on them.

Just wanted to share something that is so much fun.

If that picture is from your walk, then I'd want to get up early to walk, too. How lovely!

It really is this pretty, especially when you're on top of a hill. I didn't include those pix lest any Northern Clime people recognize the area.
