Walking in the winter wonderland
I feel a bit guilty going to the gym to walk on a treadmill since I have two dogs at home that love to get out and walk. So, this morning I decided to bundle up and take my Goldendoodle Gracie for a walk. The snow was falling peacefully to the ground with a fresh covering of white fluffiness. Underneath that beautiful whiteness, was ice. Clumps of ice ready to take down a well meaning walker. I am happy to say that this time I stayed upright. Not by my sure footedness...nope...it is because I was wearing the correct footwear. I purchased some fantastic snow boots from Cabelas. They really keep my feet warm, have great traction, and give the support that my sore feet need. In fact, there is no pain at all when I walk in these boots. They are Snow Runners and are on sale right now for $52.49.
Since there has been some conversation regarding RA and painful feet, I wanted to be sure to share this about these boots. Let me know if you get some or even have shoes that work well for you too. In the meantime, enjoy walking in the beautiful outdoors.
