Walk with a Doc Newsletter
So, we hit 500.
On the flight home from SFO, my thoughts centered around how I would ideally choose to celebrate WWAD reaching this milestone.
Before I share, you know I’m weird, right?
I’d celebrate by you and I going for a two-hour-long hike. We’d then grab a bite at a fantastic hole-in-the-wall. You’d order exactly what you want and I’d order a (big) piece of pizza and a cold draft beer – exactly what I want.
Then, over the next couple hours, I would learn your story.
We wouldn’t talk WWAD at all.
It actually doesn’t come up once.
Our hike and beer aren’t going to happen tomorrow, so let me please share this now.
Your interest/passion for Walk with a Doc has filled my life with superlatives over the past 14.5 years. Thank you.
Again, since we’re not hiking/hanging out in the immediate future, if willing, could you please reply to this email with 2 or 3 things that are important to you or make you unique.
1) I LOVE occasionally taking our poodles Phoebe and Mudge to Starbucks for puppochinos
2) I get lapel pins from all the places my family and I have gone. They’re relatively cheap and a great way to bring me back to our excursions.
3) I don’t really watch golf, but one of my favorite days is Sunday at the Masters. At 4:00, I open our family room windows to the 62-degree weather, hear the birds chirping and Jim Nantz’s voice and doze off on our couch. Ahhhh…
I look forward to personally responding to your three.
As I’ve said since 2005, there will be thousands of Walk with a Doc chapters one day. But, today, April 5th, let’s take a deep breath, smile and take solace that we are on the right path.
With ALL the things going on around us, we are on the right path.
All of us, from every conceivable background, are together, on the right path.
And guess what?
Only a relative few know what you are doing and many don’t get it.
My thoughts, hopes, and dreams are that we can stay together.
Stay together until, and after, we flip this.
Stay together and not only increase our movement and connection to each other but let this positive force you’ve created in your community burst out.
Burst out and help your friends and neighbors in a way you never dreamed imaginable.
I told you I was weird.
