While this post is a day late, I did consider typing it last week, but I just didn’t have the energy. Last week I was fairly run down, not in a covid way, but just in a weary winter way. I don’t mind cold weather, but the spring and fall of 40ish degrees is so much nicer for being able to be outside for longer time periods. Also, I haven’t found multiple decent walking paths near Delano yet (I like variety and circle paths, not out-and-backs).
For now I continue to drive into “the cities” to visit my favorite paths. Theodore Wirth takes a little more navigation in the winter as some paths double as cross-country ski trails. The walking path I like in Edina is mostly clear right now, which means others are enjoying a run, but I am fine with just a good paced walk.
Part of Jeff’s family visited us this weekend and we did walk down to the river on the trail by our house, but it is a lot of tromping through the snow. It is a short walk, but difficult depending on if there are footprints for you to follow.
Hopefully come spring I will find a few more options closer to home that don’t require driving an hour round trip. But for now I just make sure that if I am driving to go for a walk I combine it with visiting a friend, or running errands.
Have you been able to get outside lately?
