My husband, Wayne made a commitment on his birthday in July to walk or run at least 5k a day for an entire year! He has impressed my socks off by sticking with this commitment no matter how busy he’s been directing races, how much snow was falling outside or how cold and rainy it’s been lately! He hasn’t missed a single day in over 7 months!
He has invited me to join him on many of these 5ks and I have to say that it’s been one of the most bonding things we’ve done as husband and wife in our 16 years together. We have time to talk freely while we walk (often in the moonlight), we hold hands and we talk about what’s going on in our lives. There have been many tears (and a few stolen kisses) out on our walks. We’ve enjoyed the snow, the rain, spotting deer and squirrels and discovering new trials together in our neighborhood.
My only regret about these times together is that we didn’t start doing them sooner! Have you taken a stroll with your Valentine today?
