A Sunny Walk Helps Keep Winter Blues Away

Deb, Elaine and I had a great walk along Griggs Reservoir today. The sun was shining, the streets were clear, the river was frozen over and it was beautiful! The sunshine and brisk air helped to push away some of the blues that result from all of the snow and gray skies we've had in Central Ohio this winter.

Because Deb and Elaine are going to Tampa this weekend for the Gasparilla Half Marathon, we were technically tapering. However, the weather prevented them from training as hard as they normally would for a race, so tapering seemed to be a somewhat inappropriate term.

We walked for about 50 min when we got back to our cars and Deb went on home. Elaine and I continued down the rest of the river for half a mile and one hill. We ended up walking a little over 4 miles in about 1:08.

It was definitely a great mood enhancer!

By the time I took my camera out the sun was already going down and this photo doesn't really show how beautiful it was today.
