Maritime Mary: Amherst is Moving

My walking partner Margaret and I love to be outdoors, no matter how cold it is. But icy patches on sidewalks are a deterrent, so when those conditions face us, we go to our local stadium which has a very nice indoor walking track.

We’re not alone at the stadium as the traffic on the track is quite brisk. People of all ages use the facility to do their laps. Everyone is friendly, they pass, they stop to rest, and then keep moving. As one older man said to us recently, “When you come up here, lots of people wish you a Good Morning!” And that’s another benefit to moving and walking.
