Walk The Walk

Three times last night, in two different newspapers and once on The Tonight Show, I saw reports that lack of exercise shortens lives and people are dropping dead all over the place because of this.

I’ve taken this as a sign. I feel it was somehow directed at me. Maybe it was my guardian angel.

I’ve noticed my clothes getting tighter later, and if I was in a race, my stomach might come in first with the rest of me finishing last. I need to lose 12 pounds, and today it begins. I’m serious about this. So in a few minutes I’m going to walk 5.6 kilometers to a gas station outside of town, and then walk back again. 11.2 kms. in total. I feel this is quite a bit.

Now that I’ve told you, I’m committed. Damn.

I’ll be back later with a Habs post. And I’ll tell you how long it took to walk 11.2 kms.

If you don’t hear back, the walk killed me.

  1. Good luck with the walks Dennis. My problem with walking is that I come upon a Tim’s and all the good is undone by a doughnut and ice capp. Or I get hot and find a DQ sundae or a pub with ice cold beer. So it’s healthier for me to just sit on the couch and surf the net. DK.com is very healthy for the mind.

  2. habsdoc, what a combo. You’ll have to talk the talk. I don’t have any energy left and my feet are sore.

  3. Thanks, Danno. I’m going to give it a bigger shot than usual. I really want to lose 12 pounds. My gut is getting bigger.
