Retirement Hobby: I love Walking!
I started by taking long walks with my puppy through the various trails and paths in the woodland in my backyard. This is a county park that also ends up by an elementary school.
This was just, at first, to exercise the pup, but it quickly became a passion for me. Now, we go for daily walks of at least 5 miles.
I've also lost a fair amount off of my gut because of this! I feel so great and alive. I feel like I'm 50 again! I always take my dog with me for these walks and she absolutely loves it.
Some days I like to go out on the old abandoned railroad tracks and let her off leash. She tends to stick fairly close to me.
I find myself sometimes walking the mile and a half back to go the market for a gallon of milk or some other necessity. I cannot believe I like walking so much after being such an automotive enthusiast in my youth.
I feel so full of energy and youth with my walking.
