my big surprise last week was how much walking I've done. I made it the park 24 out of the 28 days in february (I will not walk in the rain - at least not on purpose - and it's probably just as amazing that there were that many non-rainy days. looking back, it seems like it rained - or snowed! - a lot last month), racking up 101 miles. I started keeping a daily log of my walking/running back in 2008 when I set a goal to cover 600 miles. so I know that 101 surpasses my last record month (september 2008, which included that year's 2-day walk, at just over 80) by more than 20 miles. and my 2008/2009 monthly average was more like 66 or 67. so, wow, a big difference!
I've enjoyed a few walks with my neighbor vanessa, but otherwise, they've all been solo (sara won't join me again til the temperature gets above 50 degrees), accompanied by my ipod - now I really understand how I've managed to stay caught up with all my podcasts and even make good progress on the backlogs for the new ones I've discovered - and occasionally my camera.
yesterday was one of those camera days. I saw the first signs of spring - coming late this year. but - hopefully - soon!
