It was a nice walk. I noticed that this was a trail highlighted as for beginner cross country skiing. I have been trying to learn to CC ski every winter but don't do very well. I think I will try this trail next winter.

I wish I had checked this last night...drat! This week will be a rough week for me at work - I'm all by myself in the office although 2 others will help with the phones, thankfully. I will definitely need to walk a couple of times after work!!

How was your walk?

It's finally cooling down!! I'm going to shoot for a walk at the Overlook tonight after getting groceries and eating dinner. I got lots of books on my Kindle so I can get going on reading again too. I'm never quite sure what I'm in the mood for when it comes to reading so I put a good variety on there.

How's everyone else doing??

Good for you Heather. On Sunday I did the cross country trail at the Kendall Lake. Don't let them fool you they say it is a moderate trail. It was quite a bit of up and then a steep down. It was a great work out.

I decided I wanted to start mapping the walking/biking I'm doing so I went back to the Botzun Trailhead last night after work to get a map of the area (they didn't have one, just the CVNP map) and figured I would do a 10-minute-in 10-minute-out walk....

I did the entire 4 miles again.

I hadn't heard about the reading/walking program. That's great. I'll have to find an Akron/Summit-County library!

I just listened to the Stoneheart trilogy which was also read by Jim Dale. A couple times I had to remind myself that I was not listening to Harry Potter!

We got our packages yesterday - how neat that the park system has a flyer with different trails that add up to the 26??

I'll get a fair chunk out of the way Saturday at the Color Run!!

Sounds fun. If you haven't listened to the Harry Potter audio books, you should. The reader is phenominal.

It comes down to a simple question: what do you want out of life, and what are you willing to do to get it?

We were going to go to the Fairlawn branch Saturday and sign up. Guess we wait until Monday. That's kind of frustrating though - people who work odd hours are limited as to when they can get to the library. Ah well.

Tonight MyHoney and I are planning on walking at the Everett Rd - Covered Bridges for the Spree. We still have 4 of those to get in!

I plan on signing up too. I tried to at my local branch (Portage Lakes) and they told me I had to wait until June 11 to sign up. I might go back in and ask again about signing up early. I don't want to miss out.

Good luck on your walking!

Basically, from June 11 to Sept 10 read or listen to 26 books, ebooks or articles and walk/run 26 miles/52,000 pedometer steps. You do have to register and then you get a t-shirt, backpack tag & be included in drawings for prizes.

MyHoney and I will be registering this week - probably Wednesday as that's his day off. Anyone else game? We can do some weekend walking together maybe?
