I personally love going on walks...
It was something I did a little of in high school (primarily walking to the front of the trailer park to get mail), but did more of as I entered college.
Because there was a trail close to school, I would often find myself on it to get away from the stresses of dorm life and homework, sometimes jogging, but mostly walking (i am NOT athletic. XD)... it was a trail connected to a park and also had a offshoot leading to the mall (aka WONDERFUL, even though I was broke lol).
My roommate and I would often go through a nearby neighborhood together for midnight walks, which had a space leading into the trail, to give her a place to smoke and for us to have ranting/venting sessions (often using words one couldn't use on a Christian campus xD), but otherwise for each other's company and growth of our friendship.
Which leads to life after college. When I lived at my mom's I often continued the pattern of walking to get the mail. When I lived at my dad's there was a small trail where I would go on nature walks and enjoy the peace of being alone and having that quiet.
This is where I would later end up on Skype/phone calls with my boyfriend when we were in a long-distance (three hours apart) relationship. This was also where he officially asked me to be his girlfriend on our first physical date (he wanted to save the question for then, a month into the relationship). He would later propose during a walk on a Lake Michigan beach...
To this day Ryosuke and I try to incorporate walking as much as possible...at least once a week, if we can. We have a nice neighborhood near our apartment that we venture into, and this leads down to the river and a park there, which is lovely. Walking hand in hand is such a great experience! <3
Anyway, enough of my mushiness over my hubby. XD
Walking is just something that comes naturally, I guess. It's more of a relational thing, for the most part - as I've more often than not had friends at my side - than a physical/exercise thing. Like I said, I love it!
Long post is long, lol. Sorry about that!
