I've been walking a lot lately, mainly at the gym, but with the weather so nice I just hate the idea of doing my exercising indoors, you know?

Yesterday, for the first time in weeks, I didn't have somewhere pressing to be first thing in the morning so I headed downtown for my walk.

It was such a beautiful day and before I knew it I had walked five miles. My time was a little slower per mile than usual but I am chalking that up to a rougher terrain. At least that's my story and I am sticking to it!

No idea what these are but their cheerful red caught my eye.


Poor confused crepe myrtle...is it still summer?


I love the beautiful greenery that grows up so many walls and fences downtown.


This hill is much steeper in person, trust me. Especially at the end of the five mile walk.


Technology is an amazing thing. This little app on my phone tracks distance, how many steps and how long I walked, and calories used. Pretty useful for a gal trying to be all healthy, isn't it?


For the record I took all of these pictures with my phone. Rob thought I had taken my camera camera with me. I didn't because
1.) It's kind of bulky and heavy and 
2.) I was exercising, people. Maybe a little slower than some but I was booking it as fast as this forty four year old new to physical exertion woman could book. One day I will be faster. One day I might even be a runner I think.

Maybe.
