    Very stiff and sore today, I feel like an old person. Sleepy, too. Also, it was rainy. Something's conspiring against me getting exercise...

    0.2 mi running, 1.2 mi walking

    But I saw a hummingbird today, a real life hummingbird. I'd never seen one before. It was there, and then it just kind of flitted away. Maybe it was just my imagination, but it was awesome.

    5 miles walking today.

    I think I need new shoes.

    I usually walk 5-7 hours per day on the weekends. I've been wearing flip flops without problem for the last 5 years. I'm dubious of the need for supportive shoes.

    I'm getting blisters under my toes and I've heard that this is a sign you need new shoes.

    You must have great feet. I would trip in flip flops. Plus, getting gravel between the flip flop and my feet would annoy the heck out of me. I guess that I just have Fussy Feet...

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    sounds less like great feet and more like giant callouses.

    I go by a simple principle -- if the shoe hurts your feet, don't wear it.

    I'd be a shitty dancer.

    .2 mi running, 3.4 mi walking. I think tomorrow I'll take off because I'm going to a baseball game in the evening.

    I goofed when I bought my last pair of walking shoes... I got the size that I normally get for every day shoes instead of a half size bigger... So walking anymore than an hour tends to hurt my feet.

    I think the key is to size them just right. I include both the men and women sizes to improve the selection.

    I've been walking a lot recently. I don't do it every day. But I covered 45 miles in 11 weeks. We were doing 3-6 miles in one day. But now we are shooting for 7-8. (Which honestly doesn't feel like much.) I think it is totally theraputic for both the mind and body. I lost 20 pounds so far, and since I have anxiety, it really is a great way to relieve my stress. Keep up the good job all you walkers!!
