So as I reflect on turning 60 I am reminded that I have aged, but I am still enjoying the same things I enjoyed as a younger man. I walked today listening to music on my Sony headphones connected to a Droid mobile phone that was playing music from an Internet application called Pandora. When I was in my early 30s I had one for the first Sony Discman’s. When I took my lunch break at work I would walk around outside and listen to music. My first CD was by Dire Straits who had just recorded the first full digital recording, Brothers in Arms.
So as I think about what has changed in 30 years I can say that one thing has stayed the same, I love music and I can still walk. I have decided to stop playing basketball and have given up on long distance endurance running to save my knees for the rest of my life. I may appear as just another brick in the wall, but inside I am still shining like a crazy diamond.
After walking every weekday morning in the dark I want to see the world in daylight. On weekends I look forward to walking when the sun is out. Today I decided to go and walk along the Flint River. I was so inspired that I walked all the way down to Oakridge Drive and crossed over and cam back through Albany State University.
Last month I surpassed my goal of 150 miles and walked 178.84 miles. So far this year I have walked 440.72 miles. I am measuring my walks using my Garmin 405.
I took some short videos with my phone that will show some of the areas that I walked through during my 13.1 mile walk on Saturday afternoon.
I have lost 15 pounds since I started my everyday walking plan this year. I am not intentionally dieting, but i have eliminated corn syrup drinks from my diet.
I am enjoying my early morning walks before work. This month I am starting to use my bask pack that I used when I was trail running. It makes drinking water easier than the small water bottle that I have been using that I carry around my waist.
