The time of year has come when it is getting cooler at night and I have been taking some cooler walks. Last night I walked in short sleeves and ended up getting a bit chilled at times. Tonight I was a bit smarter and wore a long sleeve shirt.
Of course it is also a lot cooler as I am walking after dark. This is unavoidable as I do not get home from work until after dark. I left work late tonight and it was really weird to be walking out to total darkness.
The sidewalks are also starting to collect leaves so I need to be a bit more careful when I walk. Especially if sprinkler systems have been turned on. However, I know the routs of my walks well and know where I have to be careful.
However, if I was in other parts of the world this may be what a walk would look like at this time of year. Of course, on a weekend. I will actually be near where this picture was taken next month and will probably go for a hike in the woods on the weekend. Perhaps there will be snow, but I know that it will be cold.
I have been trying to walk at least 45 minutes to an hour each night and have been making great progress on my Virtual Hike. I am hoping that I can keep motivated, especially when on the road.
I will at least be walking to and from work each day on the next trip and it is a good 20 minute walk each way.
I am seeing some results from my walking. My belt is getting longer and the numbers on the scale are dropping every so slightly.
I am also getting a lot of listening done. I just finished listening to Acts tonight and so will most likely finish listening through the Bible again my mid-month.
Tonight as I was walking and listening to Acts I was thinking about this Roman road near Tarsus. This road possibly follows the route that Paul would most likely take from Tarsus as he headed towards the Cilician Gates.
I will close my wandering thoughts and get some rest 🙂
