One year ago today, I set a challenge in front of myself to walk 365 days in a row. There was no forethought, no discussion with anyone, not even myself. Something bigger than me told me to do this, so I did it.
And it's done.
Today was not my last walk, but it was my last day on this project. Here is a smattering of what I have learned about daily walking:
- It makes you healthier
- It makes you a better writer
- It clears your brain
- It's meditative
- It's reduces and/or eliminates pain
- It clears your lungs
- It makes you crave walking
- It makes your dogs better behaved
- It inspires others to follow suit
- It helps your work on your alignment
- It fills your head with fantastic ideas
- It's good for your self-esteem
- It encourages you
- It builds muscles the right way
- It lessens your common cold occurrence
- It gives you a stress-relieving outlet
- It helps you sleep better
- It helps you lose weight
- It connects you to yourself

I am not done walking, and am not done writing--far from it. I may post on this blog 1-2 more times to connect you with my other writing endeavors, but I think that the next couple of months will just be getting settled in our new home in Montana.
Thank you, Dear Reader, for giving my little project your time and attention. I hope that these efforts have inspired you to walk more, every day. And remember to enjoy every little thing, since that's what we're here to do.
