Join Me On My RiverWalk...!

Friday, March 19, 2010



I took time today to take a few snapshots along the way during my noon hour Nordic Walking along our RiverWalk. We are blessed with yet MORE stupendous weather with tomorrow promising yet another day...time to get my motor revving and head out on my BIKE...woo HOO!

I've put the pics together into a slideshow here:

The really cool thing about Nordic Walking is the duo focus on walking and simultaneously working one's arms, shoulders and abs while thrusting the poles. It's like cross country skiing without the skis (or the slips and flopping around on the ground if you're ME...lol!). After an hour of this I can really feel it in my arms and shoulders.

I love discovering how much of our beautiful city I can take in during our noon hour! Far too often I am guilty of not thinking of places to go, things to do which keep me moving & keep me LIVING! Cars, work, daily grind...before one knows it the day is over and there hasn't been any time to SPARK!

Hope you all find ways to get off the beaten path and savor the beauty that's around you every day!

    It felt like I was walking with you. I love hearing your experience Nordic Walking (new to me). What a beautiful city. I wanted to be sitting on that bench on the path right before the picture of the bridge. Great photos - an amateur photographer, to boot? Have a great weekend, Don. Thanks for taking the time to share your day in photos.

    Sounds to me like you won't ever have to worry about sitting in your chair too long, huh?

    Great photos, Don! You've inspired me to get out as soon as our snow clears -- Iowa weather's hopefully last hurrah -- and take some pictures of our pretty local scenery! Your nordic poles remind me of why I like the elliptical!
