Alright, I did it. I finally walked to work from Yonge and Eg. It was an hour, door to door, but it felt great!

I love looking in all the shop windows as I march along. I daydream and think - I didn't even need my MP3 player, although I had meant to bring it.

I like walking so much more than running or bike riding. I just wish it didn't take so long to get from place to place or I'd do it all the time!

There's also the added annoyance of having to wear the right footwear and have shoes at work.

I've thought of riding my bike to work, taking back streets so as not to stress myself out or get run over. But I find I get so sweaty when I bike ride. And there's even MORE of an issue of making sure you wear appropriate clothes or take clothes with you in your backpack.

However, I do want to do this more often. It's such a great way to get in my exercise and save TTC money and raise my spirits in the morning.

You are a role model. I'm going to try walking too. It IS much safer than taking my bike as I am so accident prone. Of course I'll have to get out of work before 9 or I'd never ever go swimming
