Walking to work
I walked to work today. I've never done that before, and it was strange. It's about a 4.5 mile trek from my house to the office. I carried all my food, as well as a change of clothes, in a backpack. The sun was not yet up when I left the house at 6:45 this morning. Rush hour was in full force as I walked, and it was slightly nerve-wracking to have all these waves of cars whizzing by at 45 mph. By the time I got to the office 67 minutes later, the sun was up and I was cold, sore, and sweaty. I changed clothes in a bathroom stall and tried to warm up, which took a couple hours. When I get cold, it's really hard to warm myself up. It kind of sucks. I suppose it will come in handy this summer, though.
