Today, I walked it!! I didn't walk all 1,178 miles . . . but I did walk 8.53 miles of it! I started at the Yonge-Sheppard Subway stop and walked to the shores of Lake Ontario. I then turned around and walked part way back. In total, I walked 14.43 miles. This adventure took about 5 hours (including the 30 minutes I spent in Eaton Centre grabbing a bite to eat).
Here is the thing . . . I REALLY wanted to do this walk. Not because I thought that I couldn't do it. I knew I could physically do it. I just wasn't sure that I would do it. I can get so wrapped up with the day-to-day aspects of life. I'm always running kids here and there, cleaning this and that, doing laundry, or working. I always have a list of 20 things that need to be done. I love being a wife and mother. I wouldn't trade my life for the world but I wanted to take a day to do something that was just for me. Selfish? Maybe. But I'm glad that I did it.
