Walk Brighton Project Week 1

Heart Rainbow Door

Heart and Rainbow – encouragement during this pandemic

What is the Walk Brighton Project?

I live in Brighton (Rochester, NY). Due to COVID-19, I am currently living a life of social distancing and working from home. When I brainstormed ways to keep things interesting for myself, I remembered a story I saw a long time ago. An Australian man walked a lot of streets in his area. I came up with a plan to walk all of the streets within a certain radius of my home.

Background

I like to keep busy. I had big plans for 2020. I created an info-graphic list of 20 goals for the year. By the beginning of March, I had already completed 4 goals. After the Coronavirus hit New York State, I examined my list to see what I could still do. There are many that I can work on and several are related to being more healthy. Walking is a physical activity that is still available to me now (my 2020 goal to swim 20 times is put on hold).

Timing

My goal is not to be efficient. My goal is to explore my area and get exercise. I am in no hurry to finish this project but I am excited to get out there and explore new areas. That said, I am trying to first focus on areas that would be busy with traffic if we were not on a shut-down due to Coronavirus.

Experience so far…

I am thoroughly enjoying this project! It engages my mind before and after I walk segments. It motivates me to exercise. I get fresh air. I can be creative (with the photos I take). It gives me new experiences. It keeps me busy. It is a perfect project for me.
