A couple months ago, in September, we hit our one year anniversary. What an accomplishment. Maiya joined us on maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of them. She tended to go more in the warm sunny days, when we didn't go to early, or when we went in afternoons or evenings. She prefers taking the street up, but she always kicks my butt on the steps, having to wait for me at every level.

Anyways, a nice thing that has happened, is that even though it's never easy for me, I am breathing better, and I no longer need the inhaler as I did when we started this weekly walk.
It's also been nice to have a consistent walking buddy in Ayako. Although we had lost touch for a few years, that hour each week has been a nice time to reconnect. If it wasn't for her checking in every week about setting the time, I would have never done this on my own.
So, this past week was Year 2, Week 8, or 60 weeks. And that feels good.
