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. everybodywalk.org/takeac
This Friday, I am going to walk a 5K after work with a new, local SparkFriend.
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!
And then I never did another one.
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.
