Except that I hate running. I tried to like it. I started running at the gym and even ran a 5k a few years back. When I injured my knee and the doctor nixed running, I was secretly relieved. I tip my hat to all you runners out there. It’s hard.
Per doctor’s orders, I began walking. I discovered that walking gives me the mental ...
