Those Days

Week 2 — From Home to Winnie TX

Day 8. Since Thanksgiving morn I have walked enough for a virtual journey to Mike & Lisa’s house up on the north side of Houston, a day earlier than I made it three years ago on my first such walk. I still need to pick up the pace, or I’ll not make it to NYC in time for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade next year.

Day 10. And now I’ve walked enough for a virtual journey to Galveston, where Jenny and Ashley will be getting married early next year. But now I’m a few miles behind where I was after 10 days the first time I did this 3 years ago. I still need to be finding time and energy to be getting some good strong walking in, or I’ll not make my goal for the year.

Day 11. I’ve walked enough to make it to Freeport TX, where recently I attended a wedding anniversary celebration for Ann, teaming up with Eddie to sing How Could You Believe Me in SuziQ’s absence.

Day 12. I’ve now walked enough to make it to Conroe TX, up near where Zach & Bekah were married the weekend after Thanksgiving . . . but still have miles to go before I’ve walked far enough to make it to their wedding venue. Give me a few more days before I get there.

Day 13. I’ve walked enough to make it to Cleveland TX, only notable for being the site of one of the most nefarious speed traps in America. Don’t drive there. Go out of your way to drive around instead of through there. Even on a virtual walk, I’m crawling . . . and even then am risking another unfair ticket.

Day 14. I close out the second week of this virtual journey by making it to Winnie TX, well up the road in the direction I’d be taking and on pace to make it to my goal: reaching Manhattan in time for the 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.

  1. I’m going to begin keeping my Fitbit charger in the car. It’s so natural a place to keep it, I don’t know why it never occurred to me before. Like yeah, sure, my Fitbit’s nag feature has this penchant for encouraging me to go for a walk when we’re cruising down the highway at 60mph. But seriously, that’s the best time to be giving its battery a boost instead.

    If I go enough days without driving or riding, I’ll know where to find it . . . and then will just need to remember to put it back!
