Before things get 'all goofy', I am so happy and I want to tell you why.
I get to publicly welcome our newest family member, Orelle Jackson. We are SO happy (and lucky) to have her. Based out of Columbus, OH, we frequently hear quotes from Ohio State's storied coach, Woody Hayes.
We won with Rachael.
We won with Bryan.
We found another winner in Orelle, our Director of Engagement. Orelle has served on our board for a couple of years and she has a deeply compassionate heart, an unrelenting perseverance for good, she is 'shake-my-head' insightful.
This feels like 3+1=6.
Orelle, so <absolutely> wonderful to have your talents with us all!
Now, a few simple thoughts.
Hopefully, like me, you are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel (vaccine update). Last Friday, we talked about the benefits of indoor walking (link). This week, we’ll cover outdoor walking.
Our kids’ pediatrician, Dr. Bolton who walks throughout the winter shares, “No such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes.”
Keeping things simple.
This is what I do when I go out.
Middle layer - fleece, sweatshirt, down coat maybe. FWIW, been wearing one of those puffy coats for years in this role; worth their weight in gold to me. It’s shredded and leaking down but you can’t tell because of the shell.
Outer Shell - protects from the wind and rain, but you’re smart enough not to be outside in a cold rain.
Warm hat covering the ears and gloves thick enough where you can’t swipe your phone
Pizza doesn’t work, air can’t get through.
Hope this leads some of you braving the weather to add to your steps
