Reasons To Be Fit #35

My car got hit in the middle of the night.

When I took my car in to the body shop for its estimate, the receptionist said, "When you drop off your car for its work, we will call the rental car company to come pick you up."

"I can walk to the rental car place," I said.

"Are you sure? It's a far distance."

"I've got it," I said.

When the rental car company called to confirm my reservation the guy said, "...so we'll come pick you up once you drop your car off at the body shop."

"I'm going to walk," I said.

"Are you sure? It's like a mile and a half."

"I got it."

When I dropped the car off at the body shop the receptionist asked, "Are you sure you want to walk?"

"I'm sure."

"OK..."

So I walked. And the cherry blossoms bloomed their fullest. The air smelled its sweetest.

When I arrived a the rental company, the man at the desk asked, "How was your workout?"

"It was a mile and half walk," I said.

"Wow! That's a lot."

When you are fit, a mile and half is not a lot.

When you are fit, you never pass up an opportunity to walk amongst the blooms.
