Walking is very good for me.  Don't get me wrong, I like running too.  But, I love to take my daughter in her stroller and just walk around the block, anything.  It gets us both out of the house and out in the fresh air. 

Thank goodness we moved in October.  Where I was living previously, I was afraid to even walk out to the mail box, or put the trash out to the street at night.  I always took my dog with me.  I couldn't help it, we lived in a place known as felony flats. 

Our new neighbor hood isn't the greatest in the world, but it is 100 times better than the last.  I feel okay walking around the block by myself.  I usually still take the dog with me, because she needs the exercise too, and no one would mess with me and my pit bull. 

I even try to get my husband to go walking with me.  We live right around the corner from the store, so if I need milk or something I ask him to go with me.  Everyone needs some sort of exercise other than lifting the remote.

My present neighborhood is not so great so I cannot enjoy walking around the block like I used to be able to. I miss it. I usually have to drive really far to walk in the woods. I love the smell of fresh air.
