Today I took the route to school and home again with the dogs and my husband. He is home for 44 hours (but who's counting?). When he heard me say there was a group walking a mile a day, 40 miles for 40 days, he joked that we could just get it all done in the first two days. Yes, you tall thru-hiker of the Appalachian Trail, *you* could do that!
By the time we reached the school (thanks to Molly Dog's dawdling before we got off our own block), The Princess had already headed home in the rain. We got home just after she did.
It feels good to be part of a community undertaking this discipline. I am grateful for all of you.
