Ever the ADHD kid, I’m beginning to look for variation in my running routine. So yesterday I donned my ratty rubbershoes and walked from home to church for a scheduled fellowship. It was a 1.15 hour sidewalk tour of my community.
I loved it! I was covered in smoke, sweat, and grime by the time I got there, but I felt refreshed. Had the chance to really see folks as my neighbors for the first time; see the small businesses, the street vendors, the vagrants, the shanties. Saw the 5:30pm light give way to dusk. Passed by the unsavory businesses and prayed over them as I walked.
It was over an hour of walking; the best time I’ve spent in a long while.
