Life List Day 91 - Go for a Destination Walk

On the days I don't go to the gym, I sort of propel myself out the door and attempt to walk for an hour or so.

Today, instead of just wandering, I decided to pick a destination and aim for it. I've been meaning to check out a new Conrans store that opened a couple miles from me. That's where I walked.

As for the experience, I have one word:

Meh.

On the plus side, I walked farther and with more purpose than usual.

On the negative side, I walked on busy, exhaust-choked streets. Plus, when I got where I was going, turned out it wasn't Conrans (a furniture store I remember fondly from the '80s), but rather Crate & Barrel, which I already get a catalog for.

Ah well. There are 365 days in a year in which for me to try new things - they can't all be winners.

I have to remember that, sometimes, the reward is in the effort.

You are a winner just for walking and getting exercise!

Hello Jill! At least you walked, girl! And for that I congratulate you! I have a friend who walks daily, with her mother, 10 km (sorry...don't know how to convert it into miles)! Here in Portugal, you find a new store today, and a month later it may not be there anymore *shrugging*! Cheers!
