One Walker's Story

The view from Dove Mountain Trail was sky blue and desert magnificent this morning. I was feeling pretty good about getting in my one-mile-plus-a-little-bit-more walk when I started chatting with a fellow walker along the trails.

Turns out, this women walks 3-4 times a week and walks four miles at a crack. "I lost part of a lobe from one lung and the walking really helps," said this very healthy walker who also is a golfer. She was just about to her two mile turn around point and slowed to walk with me for a bit.

Well, that kind of story will get me outside more often. Fresh air and exercise. Both are the gifts of Arizona in the winter for lots of us down here.
