"Walkin'...walkin' together" or "And my feet hurt!"

I've been walking during my lunches with one of my coworkers. He's about 6'5 and is getting close to 400 lbs. He's not sure how much he weights honestly but he's starting to have health problems (y'think?!) and his doctor told him either lose weight or get ready to die. There wasn't anything wrong with him that taking off 150 lbs wouldn't cure and plenty of things that would if he didn't. Dan has decided to live.

I admire his dedication ... he's really consistent and he's always a good conversationalist. Wednesday while things were slow at work we took an obscenely long lunch and walked up City Creek Canyon up to the water processing plant and back. SIX miles. SIX. We were both rather proud of ourselves.

At least I am doing this. I HAVE to get back in my "exercise saddle" again (pines for kickboxing) ...but again, at least I am walking 2-3 miles a day during lunch.
