Morning! Welcome to another week of Stuff We Like brought to you by the letter 'c' and Freddy.
This week we are all about the Charity Miles app.
Every work day I walk to the train station, take the train downtown, then walk to my work. Once my day is over I hoof it back to the station and get home. I am guaranteed to walk a minimum of 6 miles a day, 5 days a week.
I do it because I enjoy walking. I put in my head phones, tune out the world, and just go. It's my time to myself, and I relish it. Even in subzero temperatures I walked to work.
When a coworker was introduced to this app, the first person they thought of was me, because they know I'm already walking/running to and from work.
Might as well do some good, right?
There are quirks, and some things I wish they could improve, but for now I'm happy that there is something out there like this.
It's nice to know when I'm trying to take care of myself, I can help someone else too. All those cents add up after a while.
