These days I'm rediscovering the joy of walking and biking to commonplace destinations. Downtown (library, K's famous dairy bar, live music on the square, weekly farmers market) is only 1.8 miles away. A good chunk of the less-than-a-mile jaunt to the grocery store is marked by a pedestrian/bike/jogging stroller path. The other day I ran morning errands on my bike (I couldn't remember the last time I'd ridden a bike), zipping over to sister H's and brother D's house in a round trip of a whopping four miles. The possibilities are rather exhilarating.
