What a beautiful morning for my 3RD power-walk of Season 13 on that asphalt track on the hill at the city park down the road from my neighborhood. 65°F felt so good at the start of my walk, but I was drenched in sweat some 50 minutes later, as temperatures began their rapid ascent towards the mid-80s later in the day.

This was a 2.84-mile power-walk in 51 minutes and 50 seconds. That’s a pace of 18 minutes and 14 seconds per mile. (I walked 3.29 MPH.) The track that I walk on is about 0.47 miles around. I did 6 laps.

Some Fitbit heart rate stats – 38 out of 52 minutes in “peak”; 10 out of 52 minutes in “cardio”; 164 BPM at peak; 146 BPM on average.

Walk-A-Thon 13-3

That’s a photo of the eastern sky at 7:02 AM – 7 minutes after sunrise.

As I walk I pray for good health, and for the safety and security of my fellow walkers on the track. I also pray for my neighborhood, my city, and the surrounding area.

These 13 songs randomly played on my iPod Shuffle as I walked. They represent the soundtrack of my life – past before Christ – and present in Christ.
