‘Cause this is all what I’m cracked up to be

Amid any other consideration, I must say that my eyes have been opened as to the truth about the myth of my old age.

For the second day in a row, I wore my regular comfortable old walking shoes with soles worn out and holes in the tops, and I trudged the surface more comfortably and with less inclination to slip & fall than I ever have in my boots.

I am no longer suffering under the illusion that I’m too done in to further endure the cold weather conditions with the hardiness of my lifelong modus operandi.

I walked all the way to Matt’s place, stopping at Walgreens to pick up my levo, and when the time had come, walked all the way back, hoofing it through intriguing new territory en route.

Brisk four miles of walking, feeling the cold air like a tonic salve on my lungs. Good to be home but even better to have been outdoors!

And to think I thought I was becoming a softie! I’m gonna crack the window.

  1. I like walking in the cold. We don’t get good winter cold here very often.

      It can be very invigorating. You’re probably too close to the sea.

  2. That’s awesome. Brisk walking in cold weather can feel invigorating. But most importantly, good for you for not settling into “I can’t do this” expectations!

      Exactly! It’s been liberating to discover that I actually CAN do it. :)
