On Sunday, I went out for a walk in the late afternoon. I regularly walk around my neighborhood, weather permitting. While I try to vary the route each time I go out, there are really only so many ways I can go, so I’ve walked the same routes over and over. The path I took on Sunday was the one I walk the most. I call it my “regular” route. It can be walked in about 25 minutes, but it is still about 1.5 miles.
Now, I do try to keep up a steady pace while I’m out there, but by no means am I speedy. It’s w-a-l-k-i-n-g, not jogging, not running, not even speed walking.
This particular day, I was about halfway through the route, at the top of the hill. I was just about to start the downward portion when I noticed something new. I’ve walked this route many times, this sign was not there before. It is brand new.
And I was confused. Am I walking too fast down that street?
