Mall Walking

So I've started to get my exercise by walking in the mall.

The mall opens at 8:00 AM, so I go right after morning services.  I walk for 30-45 minutes. 

It's interesting to see who is in the mall before the stores open.  I'm not the only one trying to get in a little exercise; I'm starting to recognize the faces of the "regulars".  there's a security guard on his Segway, and a couple of janitors cleaning the windows and the floors.    You'll also see some retail workers in their stores, getting the stores ready for the morning rush.  Yesterday I saw one store with a lot of employees, I think they were getting ready to do inventory.

It's a little bit disorienting right now.  The last remnants of the Christmas decorations are still in the center of the mall, and a lot of stores are in the middle of their after-Christmas sales.  But Hallmark and Godiva are all decked out for Valentine's Day.  And Kate Spade and Michael Kors have their spring collections on display.

If you told me a year ago that I'd be spending my mornings at the mall...

But times change. 

And change is good.
