Lisa - Pennsylvania 8:15 to 8:45 p.m.

Last night Jonathan and I took a late walk after a week of no walking. Part of the reason for "no walking" was because I injured my foot. I'm not sure what I did, but it was really, really hurting. Yesterday was the worst day for it, but I went for a walk anyhow. The weather was great, it was the first night of high school football around here and we both needed to get out (Hubby was at work as he usually is in the evening.) I don't like to walk around our neighborhood at night because the lighting stinks and the sidewalks aren't much better. But last night the neighborhood was lit up like a Christmas tree because of the game going on in the stadium across the street from our house.

We started out just walking by the high school, but then Jonathan wanted to cut through the stadium and since it was the third quarter and we didn't have to pay to get into the game, I obliged, hoping I didn't see anyone we know since I wasn't dressed the greatest (plus I didn't even put any shoes on my kid!). We then walked around the block back to our house. Even though Jonathan wasn't ready for the walk to be done, my foot certainly was and after wards it was swelled up the size of a baseball. OK, maybe a tennis ball, but it was still swollen and painful. Again, I've no idea what I did with it, other than maybe my $10 Wal-Mart specials don't offer enough support.

It was not a great night for photographs, since it was so dark out, but I did try a few, including one of Jonathan's reflection in the window at the school. Yeah, it didn't really come out. At all.

Here's to hoping next week will prompt a few more good walks.

Hey Lisa! I'm so glad you are walking. I wish football season was a cooler one for us, as my daughter plays in her band and we attend all of the home games.

Make sure you stay safe when you walk at night, or I will worry for you. ;)

I have noticed that shoes make all of the difference in the world! I spent a few pain filled days after walking in poor shoes. I hope your ankle feels better soon. Baseball or tennis ball...ankle pain is NO FUN! :(

Thanks for posting! I have faith that next week will bring you many walks!

Glad you were able to walk. Like Hayley said please be safe out at night, I worry too.

I hope your feet are feeling better and we can see more of your creatively fit walks.

Talk care,
