Needless to say we do a lot of walking. During the week, there's school and work. On the weekend, there's grocery shopping. But recently I had to fill out a survey about travel habits and realized just how much we really walk.

On a recent Saturday, these were the trips I took. They were all pretty short but, as you can see, they add up:
  • Grocery store (15 minutes each way)
  • Walk Anna to a friend's house for birthday party (also 15 minutes each way)
  • Return to friend's house because Anna forgot to bring present (add another 30 minutes)
  • Drop off Leah at Emerson for playdate (does 3 minutes each way even qualify as a trip?)
  • Since both kids are at playdates, Keith and decide to take a neighborhood walk. We walk up College Avenue and through Rockridge, then back by way of the Uplands and Claremont Avenue (45 minutes total)
  • After dinner, walk to video store, stopping off at bookstore (5 minutes each way)
Total minutes walked: 2 hours and 31 minutes.

Seems living without a car, exercise becomes a way of life! You don't have to consciously set aside time to stay in shape. Good for you!
