Start the New Year With Community Service

On my run/walk today, I noticed (as always) the litter along the sidewalk. Even though I live in a nice community, there's always little odds and ends of people's stuff tossed away. I always feel guilty running by trash. My parents taught me to never litter, and they often picked up the trash others left. Therefore I see littering as a sin against humanity. I try never to do it, and I'm offended by others who do. Just think how much better the world would be without trash lying around.

Today, I made a resolution to talk a walk on New Year's Day, trashbag in hand. I'm going to pick up litter on my regular run/walk. I'm also going to go along the path through the hills that I run once a week during bootcamp. Total for both places--4 miles.

Just think what could happen if a lot of people did this on New Year's Day. A cleaner world. What a way to start the new year.

Will you join me?
