Even in the stinky, record setting Dallas heat, walking feels good. I have to remember this. It's been a week since my last power walk and no doubt the heat has been getting me down. Today, my Dad was with my kids and said, "Go take a walk". Nice offer and a great suggestion. That's what Dads are for, right? I left my iPod at home and just listened to the sounds of my neighborhood (lawn mowers, car traffic, birds, buzzing bug life, and kids in the school yard.) The other sound I heard was my own breathing, somewhat labored yet strong and slow. Yep, walking sure feels good.
