A Walk in the Winter

I love walking.  And while I’ll admit I miss the snow (an unpopular opinion, I know), I do enjoy that we’ve had some 60-degree days this winter to walk.  I’ve been walking 3-5 miles per day at least three times per week.  It’s unlikely it will last long.  The days will get colder; I have some busy weeks coming up, but every time I get out for a walk I enjoy it.
