Regis and I talked this morning about our walking. He was feeling some stress, too, about falling behind and wanted to either make a new commitment or forget it. We have a plan for walking on his long days...I'm going to stay awake until he gets home. Doing it in the morning is just too hard with all the other things we do in the morning. On our weekends, we're going to make it a priority no matter what our plans are. I said we could take the dogs most days, and walk the mile and a half loop around our neighborhood but he agreed to go other places from time to time, like the arboretum or the river path...and leave the dogs at home. It feels like a sentence to have to walk the same way every day. So, there you go. Back on the trail of 500 miles.
