    I love walking. When I walk,

    everything that I'm thinking about just goes away, it's just me & whichever path choose to walk and I get there when I get there, no one is telling how I should walk, rushing me or telling me I have x-amount of time to get from here to there.

    I love walking because it clears my mind.

    Then I am able to think better. And I get some exercise.

    Walking is my therapy,

    and it is super affordable. I try to walk every day if I am not too sore from a workout. There are trails that lead down to the river, they are gorgeous, and I like to run those.

    Well I grew up in North Wales

    and North Wales is my home so walking has always been one of the top activities for me. With some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole of Britain right on my doorstep it would be a travesty not to make use of it. Growing up I used to spend most of my weekends scaling the...

    I really LOVE walking - through mountains

    and valleys, anywhere in the nature and even in towns - to walk means freedom for me and to get a clear head.

    I walk everyday. I enjoy walking,

    when I leave my house in the morning and close the door behind me, everything in my home is forgotten and I go on my merry way. I love to walk down the street and see the passerbyes, and wonder sometimes where everyone is heading. Are they on their way to work?, to the grocery...

    The Two Without The Four

    I quit walking for three months after my dog died...I cried every time I thought about my two feet going along the road without her four beside me. I now have eight feet pattering along with my two, and am once again a regular walker and I carry my old girl along in my heart...

    I walk about 2 hours a day

    but not all at once.. I split the time up.. When i do get back from my walks I feel like my body is stiff and then when i go back on my walks and it feels like all the air left my body.

    I love my walks. It's freedom

    for me. Feels good walking with no pain. If it's raining forget it & I've have my crapy days where I can't walk (sore back). I get so jealous of people walking their dogs! I love to walk a dog. My sisters dogs don't like the road, nor walk well on the lesh. They r house dogs...

    4:30 am. Door opens, stepping out my face feels

    the cool damp air first. My breath draws in: I can see the smell of the air. Lilacs, green wet grass, unidentifiable flowers. Sounds enter my soul, my feet meeting the pavement, the sound of heart beating, the song of the birds. Warmth begins to embrace me from the inside out...

    I started to walk a lot

    when I started to study at a university in another city in my country. The campus was about 35-40 minutes walk away from my apartment, so I walked every day at least one and half an hour. Of course there were public transport I could use, but I tell you that I've never used the...

    Is there anything more relaxing

    than going out for a long walk to nowhere in particular? Just keep going in the direction you're facing. The perfect way to clear your head from all the rubbish it gets filled with during the day. I've been known a good few times when I can't sleep, to get up, pull some jeans...

    There are quite a few different trails around

    where I live. I enjoy talking a nice 2 or 3 mile walk on one of them after work and often go longer on the weekends. There are unfortunately days where I can't get out there or have to cut it short due to knee or back pain.

    I could easily walk all day

    as long as I have my music and headphones. I particularly enjoy walking in the countryside and I'm lucky enough to live near enough to go on long walks. I love getting into the depths and just sitting watching the river and listening to the birds.

    Tonight I snuck away with my oldest

    for a long walk. We walked along the water and watched ships pass. I realized that we have been together walking this very same path for years. When we started she was much shorter than I am. Now she is taller and becoming a young woman. These will be memories I never forget!

    that it was always slightly embarrassing as we had a cat, and the cat used to come with us, on a lead. So I?ve walked a cat on a lead. Well a 30ft washing line. Because a cat won?t do as you tell it. My parents would have the cat on the lead, but my brother and I were less keen...
