Well. My need to walk 3/4 miles twice a day is done... I was dog sitting for someone that lives a quarter mile away, so half mile round trip, and then I'd wander about outside with the pup to make sure he did his business (I say pup, but he's actually a 13 year old, nearly 100 pound chesapeake bay retriever that doesn't realize he's a) not a puppy anymore and b) not a lap dog).
Looks like I'm going to have to start making use of the treadmills available for community use in the student union to get my daily walking in. Without taking care of the dog, I lose half of my steps per day!
