I think we city folks are too impressed with ourselves walking this many or that many walks. You know that old saying, “a country mile”? I have friends in eastern Kentucky who don’t go to gyms, don’t have exercise equipment. They just walk and walk and walk, carrying their daily loads up and down mountains. These people are long and lean, with ropy muscles. They don’t sit around, patting themselves on the back for going a few blocks here or there. I am going to take a page from them in the new year!
