Places I will walk when I can.
6. MOTHER'S DAY. Not this year, but maybe next, my Mom and I will return to the Parkway for our annual Race for the Cure tradition. That 5K won’t tire us out or scare us off. And afterward, we’ll walk even farther! We’ll celebrate more mother-daughter days to come.
|You'll see my sign!|
9. BONJOUR. There will come a day when I’ll drag my luggage down that jet-way to board my long overdue flight to France. I’ll see those olive trees and walk those steep sidewalks; the ones that were all cancelled in 2010. I'll visit my French family, and experience those markets, cafés, and vineyards encore à pied!
|It's a WISH LIST,|
10. AND THEN…. When I’m all walked out, I’ll retire to my favorite spot along Kelly Drive. I'll plop down on the curb and lace up my skates. Then, I'll crouch low and push off. Hands clasped behind my back, I’ll weave in and out between runners, and bikers, and – well -- all those "newbie" skaters.
Yesterday as I crashed on the couch, my brother informed me it was "National Walking Day."
My dad laughed and replied that it was “National Hopping Day” for me.
Really, it was neither.
This afternoon, my dad pushed me around the block in the wheelchair. My leg and I are taking it easy for a few weeks.
But if I'm more COMFORTABLE in the long run, a month is a very small price to pay.
Do the miles count if your feet don't touch the ground?
Let me know what you think...
For now, I'll settle for DREAMING BIG.
Tell me, on a good walking day where would YOU go??
