Take a Pledge to Walk!

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Today is National Walking Day -- I'm being reminded of it everywhere I turn today: Facebook, SparkPeople, and even my work inbox!

The Surgeon General has a Call to Action to WALK! What better day to promote it than National Walking Day? They have a pledge card that asks what you will do to get out there and get moving.

This Friday, I am going to walk a 5K after work with a new, local SparkFriend. emoticon The last time I did a 5K was 2003, and I trained for it with my then-boyfriend. I am a terrible runner, it took me 45 minutes, but I was so proud of myself for doing it that I cried when I crossed the finish line! emoticon And then I never did another one. emoticon

If today is National Walking Day, is this National Walking Week? I'm going to pretend that it is, regardless. Makes Friday's 5K even more special. emoticon
