I just got back from the mall. Our mall opens at 8am every day (2 hours before the stores open) to allow people to walk. I always thought it was a bunch of old ladies who did it. My SIL just had a baby and wanted to start walking so she invited me. I dont know why I didnt do it before. They play upbeat music on the sound system during walking hours. You dont have to worry about the weather. I've been putting off my morning jog because its so cold. The floor is level and perfect for my SIL to push her stroller. Plus I can window shop while I'm excersising. Its also pushes me to just make one more lap. Every day I want to do one more lap than the previous day.
