Walked 2.25 Miles – Brooklyn
August was a month of transition. I started a great new job – that’s full time. My schedule is very different now and I’m still trying to settle into a routine. I went from working 7am-2:30 (with Fridays off – I know, it was the dreamiest schedule ever) to now working 8:30-5:00pm.
It’s been a harder adjustment than I was expecting. It’s exhausting being the new girl and also working a full day. So walking was pushed to the back burner. I needed the time to sleep and be lazy. Now it’s September and I’m starting to see the beginning of a groove.
Today I finally got up the gumption to get out and walk. I continued getting up at my old time which made it easy to get out and walk before work. I really enjoyed it. The cooler weather is, of course, a plus. But it’s also just a great time to walk. I saw more folks out this morning than I’ve ever seen walking in the afternoon. Light will be an issue. It was pretty dark when I started and it’s only going to get darker. Soon I will be going to work in the dark and returning home in the dark. That might make posting tricky, but it won’t hinder walking. It will also help challenge my iphone skills. I’m really excited about this next chapter.
I saw this hummingbird and stopped to watch it fly around a bit. Then I saw two more hummingbirds at work today. That must be good luck.
