I was delighted that the day started with a beautiful morning, and the excitement of it all gave me more energy than usual. I chose to enter the 5K walk around our downtown, and I made it a brisk walk. I don't get to walk around our downtown that frequently and I found my walk to be quite enjoyable. The walk gave me some quiet time to think and to take in the downtown sites and sounds. The walk was just a simple way of contributing to the larger good. Maybe next year my husband will join me and we'll do one of the bike routes instead!
