Warm Summer Day

It was is in the upper 70s today so going for a long walk seemed in order. I had taken the day off from work to get some things done around the house. Ordered a new countertop for the kitchen as well as a patio door. The finish was still drying on the bathroom trim so my afternoon was now free. I now needed to choose between motorbike ride or a long walk. Walking won. I headed uphill, as I usually do, and headed into the next subdivision. A Pearl Creek School, I turned and headed up towards the top of the hill on Ballaine Road. This was a road that I had wanted to try for months and this seemed to be the perfect day to explore bit. From the top of thei hill, I then headed to the University along the West Ridge ski trails before going down to College Road. Then home along the Farmers Loop bike path. It turned out to be a nice 14 mile walk. Pretty tired after that. I hope I'll be ready for the Midnight Sun Run this Saturday.

My walks haven't been logging on the Nike+ site since I did the factory reset on the iPod. After the reset, the iPod now appears to the Nike+ site, so I need to login to the site sometime to associate the "new" iPod to my account. Hopefully, there won't be any glitches. I would be annoyed if my last couple of walks were lost. Tomorrow will be my first WIN walk of the summer. I've been really good about getting some miles in just about every day during lunch time but it will be nice to walk with others. Unlike last year, they have walks in the morning and evening in addition to the noon walk but I can't do them all the time. Their "award" for showing up this year is a water bottle.
