I’d seen him walking the early morning road, an older gentleman wearing a white tee shirt stretched over a bit of a paunch and tucked into belted farmer-style dungarees, baseball cap pulled down snug over his forehead, chin to chest walking steadily and deliberately to a tune only he could hear.
The other day I was walking the same early morning road and there he was. I waved “Hello!” as we do here, I’m Diane, how ya doin? Fine, he replied; I’m Stan. I’ve seen you walking this road; how far do you like to go? Oh, 10 miles up and back! 10 miles! Every day? No, just 2 days a week; but I’ve been doing it – for 20 years – rain or shine.” And off he went walking steadily, deliberately.
10 miles a day, 2 days a week, for 20 years, rain or shine.
