I Walk For Kicks, East Missoula, Montana

Let’s be clear and up front about this (to avoid having my inbox flooded with misguided celebrity participation requests, of course) : I walk. I do not run - not even for Kicks.  But I will walk for Kicks, along with TBHE (The Best Husband Ever) and DD (Darling Daughter aka TOC - The Only Child). Well, she'll run. But we still love her.

Check out East Missoula’s official I Run For Kicks site here to see updates on today’s 5K fundraiser for school shoes for local kids in need.
Big thanks for sponsorship this year to Montana Cabinets, Runner’s Edge, Liberty Vapor, Red Umbrella Media, River of Life, and Riverside Coffee House.

And if you want to be inspired by some serious walking stats, look here at Scott’s updates as he’s Walking to Retirement.

Twilight Explorer, Missoula, Montana

“We shall not cease from exploration,
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
- T.S. Eliot, as quoted in “Walking From East to West” by Ravi Zacharias

Dreamy in Pink, Missoula, Montana

“With crimson juice the thirsty southern day,
Sucks from the hills where buried armies lie,
So that the dreamy passion it imparts
Is drawn from heroes' bones and lovers' hearts.”
- Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Isn't that a dreamy dress?”
- "Pretty In Pink" (1986; 00:58:35 )

Waterside Greens, Missoula, Montana

Missoula’s agricultural past shows up in the present as irrigation ditch systems still running through neighborhoods, above ground and through culverts below. It makes for a pleasant diversion whilst trundling down back alleys, as some are wont to do of an evening.

Waikiki Sunset Moment on the Clark Fork, Missoula, Montana

Missoula’s downtown riverfront is an amazing gathering place where you can enjoy nature’s calm a stone’s throw from bustling activities - concerts, outdoor films, food fairs, festivals - in Caras Park. And all of this is within easy walking distance to downtown stores, restaurants, and theatres. If you visit Missoula in the summer, you’ll be charmed - and may decide to stay!
