Training at the Riverwalk

Come along with me and let me show you the spiritual journey I went on this morning. I awoke this morning and didn't know where I wanted to go worship, but knew I needed to go somewhere, so I decided to go take a walk on our beautiful Riverwalk about 10 min. from my house. I can't begin to tell you the great feeling I had deep down in my heart and spirit while walking this beautiful trail and looking up to the blue heavens and praying and singing along with my ipod. I was the only one walking, so the birds were my audience. I felt such a peace and renewal of my mind. It is just what I needed. I ended up walking about 3 1/2 miles, maybe a little more. I also thought this would be a great day to get ready for my 6 mile walk coming up this Saturday for the March for Babies. I am walking with Team James & Jake. If you feel the need to donate towards this wonderful cause, please click on the side bar to see my personal page. So, sit back and I will show you my walk this morning.See the Chicago Skyline in the distance? This is how far I live from that wonderful city.And this is the end to the trail. It comes up to beautiful Lake Michigan. And if this wasn't enough exercise this morning, I stopped on my way home and helped my dad out and mowed his yard for him. He was very happy. I got my workout in for today and I feel energized, aside from the throbbing feet.
I've enjoyed sharing my walk with you! I can't wait to go back. Happy Sunday!

Why don't I know where this is? I need to get out and do some walking this week. I'm going to die out there on Saturday. You won't leave me in the dust will you? I'm so proud of you for keeping up with your exercising. Great job!!

It makes it so much nicer to fit exercise in when you have a beautiful place to do it! That is a lovely place to walk. Wish we had something like that near us.

This journey energized me this morning! The sky, the sand, the lovely bridges and staircases... and I can hear the birds and you singing. Yes, it is a spiritual place, a beautiful place where you are part of all that beauty. Thank you for sharing this wonder and awe!
