3 thoughts on “Hiking/Walking

    1. My knees were win pretty rough shape for a long time. I walked a whole lot to strengthen them before I started hiking. And running is super hard for me, so a slow work in progress. That’s why I do a run/walk/run program. I may never be a full on runner. I did a lot of damage to my lungs from years of heavy smoking and weak legs from sit down jobs and being a couch potato. You crawl before you walk and walk before you run. And even if you never ever run you are way ahead of the others who are just sitting on the sofa 😉 San Francisco is gorgeous! Great area to walk, oh my goodness all the hills! Visited there once and would love to go back again one day!
