I love food and meeting a friend for lunch is a great diversion in a workday. I of course am open to breakfast and dinner as well, but lunch is my favorite time for a get together. What I have realized is these lunch dates usually include a 2-3 mile walk; hike or bike ride and I have to decline because I have a sore back!
It is great to reward a very hilly walk or a 1,000-foot elevation gain hike with a yummy lunch. A bike ride of 6-7 miles to a new coffee shop is fun. I love walking, hiking or biking and talking with my friends, but can’t we do the same just over lunch?
