Walked 4.77 Miles to Westmoreland Park
Crossing McLoughlin is never fun. It’s a long wait until the light changes and it’s just a freaking huge busy street. One the opposite side of McLoughlin, 5 little kids were on bikes with two adults. The walk sign came on and we all started to cross. A car turning left narrowly missed hitting this party. So scary. As I got to the other side, I saw this chalk writing “Don’t Die”. I’ve also experienced cars coming too close to me as I’ve crossed. I hope that folks will slow down and mind people in the crosswalk.
I didn’t realize the spider was there until after I took this picture. Sort of icky, sort of cool.
If you look to the right of this tower, you can see the moon. It looks super tiny here, but it looked amazing in real life.
So as I’m walking and thinking about Fall being aright around the corner, I saw crocuses. Wait. What? How does that work? I was stunned.
And I saw them in several other yards. I’m so confused.
There were many geese hanging out. Most were eating fast and furiously. There wouldn’t even look up at me.
Instead, I focused on the ducks. There were so many sleeping all along the edge of the water. All the dots in the background of this picture are ducks.
Today I walked in my Keens. I wear them all the time in my daily life, so I figured it was worth trying them on a walk. I had such a great walk. I had a bit of pain, nothing like I’ve been experiencing. I also walked much faster today. I had a great time. So I’m thinking it’s time to figure out running shoes. I’m so very tempted (and nervous) to try a minimalist running shoe; I think it might work well for me.
There was a layer of feathers over most of the park. It was really quite amazing.
My first lemon cucumber spotting!
