My New Year's resolution was to lose some weight and the belly that had begun to irk me every time I walked by a mirror. So I began walking down and up the hill I live on... a miserable dirt road that runs 1.1 mile in length and 500 ft. of elevation between Chateau Dorsa and the East End Road.
It turns out to be an ideal form of exercise. It's tough enough to break a good sweat, but low impact. I listen to podcasts and collect roadside litter for the 40 minute duration of the routine. I've lost about 15 lbs. and the gut is looking much better.
