Every month I’m picking one skill to practice everyday for a month and updating my progress every Monday. I call it Project Incremental. Read up on how it all got started.

I have a new favorite spot at a local park but I don’t stay there for very long. The new spot is a few hundred feet of serpentine asphalt surrounded my trees, cool air, shade, and tweeting birds. If I look to my right all I can see is a wall of green and, when it’s quiet, I can pretend there aren’t 3 baseball fields to my left. What might be best of all is the complete lack of snarling dogs. Or it might be the pocket of crisp, extra - oxygenated air. I haven’t decided.
Last week’s walks have all been taken in the afternoon so that cool, little pocket of air is much appreciated since it’s still in the 70’s and technically summer. Hurry up, Fall Equinox. The first week I walked a mile. The second week I walked 2 miles. This week I’m going to push for 3 and maybe there will be a little jogging if I go in the morning. Plus, I’m going to try to get my time down closer to a 10 minute mile. Wish me luck. I’ll see you after the third lap.
P.S. My to-do list still quakes in fear when I walk up.
