Park Visit

Today I took my husband’s parents to visit Meridian Hill Park in DC. We had a good time walking around the park. Here’s a shot from our visit. After that I went on an outdoor walk. I walked 3.02 miles. Good walk!

Skyline Drive

No walking today. We went to Skyline Drive instead. We wanted to see the fall colors in the mountains of western Virginia. We do this every year. We saw some great colors and the weather was perfect. We also went to a few wineries along the way. Fall is my favorite color!

Fall Walk

It was chilly this morning but it’s going to be warmer today than it was yesterday. I walked 3.16 miles on the track at AU this morning. When the sun came up enough to light up the other side of the track, this is what I saw. Beautiful!

Pretty Morning Walk

It was cold again today but the sun was out and it was a pretty walk this morning. I went to walk about an hour later than usual. I think that’s why it was pretty. The sun was up and it was crisp. I walked 3.12 miles on the track at AU. This picture is close to my building.

Cold Walk

I got back to walking early in the morning today. I walked 3.16 miles on the track at AU. It was 48 degrees! I love the cold but it was a bit cold to be outside that long without something on my legs. I knew it would be getting cold so I got some of those runner pants to wear on these cold mornings. They worked! I wasn’t cold at all. I need to get some runner gloves next. My hands were cold.

On another note, I am just so sick of our president. When he called the woman whose husband died last week in Niger he told her he knew what he signed up for. What an asshole. He is incapable of feeling sympathy for anyone. He is absolutely a horrible person. He’s got to go!

After Dinner Walk

We went to wineries all day today so I didn’t walk in the morning. I decided to walk after dinner. Because of these delicious potatoes, I was walking the hallways and stairwells at 8:30 in the evening. It was dark so I walked inside. I did walk 2.16 miles though.

The Rain Stopped

The rain finally stopped today but it was foggy and wet outside. I decided to walk on the track anyway. I walked 2.31 miles today. It was a bit sticky but I needed to be outside. If you are keeping track you will see that I tend to walk farther when I walk on the track.

Campus Walk

Today I drove down to my college for Homecoming weekend. It’s also my 30th college reunion. I walked all over campus a few times today. I took a tour of the campus and did several things. I ended the day with 7.75 miles! It wasn’t done all at one time but over the whole day. That’s the most I’ve walked yet! I was tired this evening. I’m having a great time though! Here’s one shot from the campus.

Thursday Walk

This morning I walked 3.10 miles on the track at AU. Nothing special. Just glad I got my 3 miles in. It wasn’t chilly either. We’ve gotten back to a bit of summer. The sky was beautiful for a short time this morning.

Long Walk

This morning I walked 3.90 miles at the AU track. The conditions were just right for me to walk that far. I was thinking that I might hit 4 miles by the time I got home but it was only 3.90. I got another cool photo while at the track. I am really loving the camera on this iPhone 8 Plus. What do you think of this photo?

Beautiful Dawn

This morning I had an MRI on my right wrist to figure out where some pain is coming from. I had to be there very early this morning. I’ll get the results in about a week I guess. On the way home I saw this sky and just had to take a picture. I think it’s beautiful!

Of course I also walked today. I walked 3.10 miles but it was a little later in the morning. I didn’t take any pictures on the walk though since I had that amazing photo above.

Cool Photo

It was cold again this morning but I wore the sweatshirt again and was able to get 3.14 miles on the track. On the way to the track I passed the power plant for the university. There was a pipe putting out all this steam. From the other side of the track it made for a cool photo. Do you agree?

On another note, I’m just sick with the mass shooting that took place in Las Vegas last night. It’s the largest mass shooting in modern American history. Of course Trump is a horrible president and never says what needs to be said to heal the country.

Busy Track

I only walked 2.35 miles this morning. Besides the fact that it was quite chilly, the track was also very busy. I decided to get at least 2 miles in then stop. And the picture isn’t all that interesting today either. I’ll try harder tomorrow.

Sticky Walk

Ugh! Summer hasn’t ended yet. This morning it was hot, humid and sticky. And there were a lot of bugs out there. I walked 2.57 miles on the track this morning. It was gross. But I did take this picture of some pretty flowers with my new iPhone 8 Plus on the walk.
