  1. Good for you, Burt!

    l love walking. I probably don’t do it as much as you, at least not this time of the year (the cold weather and early sunset are good excuses), but I like doing it and it’s my main form of exercise. I used to run, but those days are gone, at least for me.Report

  2. Love this piece, and have enjoyed all your writing about your moving to Portland.

    I always keep this idyllic picture in my head of walkable cities, mostly from my time living in Europe where my preferred method of exploring was just take the train to city center and start walking my way outwards and explore. Then there are days like last week where after spending two days on my feet in DC with kids, and several days recovering, I’m very happy to return to my semi-suburban, drive everywhere daily life.Report

    Walking is probably the thing I miss most about my condition. Good on you for stepping up to this challenge you gave yourself @burt.

    As far as the headlamp goes, one of my oldest friends is deeply involved in ultralight backpacking and he swears by one. Can’t see that being uncool in Portland.Report

    I rolled my eyes when the Mrs. got me a Fitbit to match hers. But since then, I have come to appreciate how just being aware of ones health, helps in making better decisions.Report

    So did you walk 500 miles and will you walk 500 more?Report

    Congrats. Sounds like a great way to explore your city. I prefer running but anyway to wander around a new place is fun. And any sort of athletic achievement is a good thing especially as we get older.Report

    I’m so happy you’re enjoying your new surroundings!

    Keep walking – running causes SO many injuries. I forbid my clients to run since they invariably end up hurt and then can’t do anything.

    Headlamps are in style in the PacNW. You won’t look like a dork at all.Report
