I worked the night shift Thursday and Friday so I had to sleep during the "walk" time! Would have been better is there were several starting time options. Maybe next time!

Was walking and working! Sounds like a great many people did walk in Iowa City!

My friend and I did do the walk with some other people in our community. My friend and I made it into a REAL exercise time by walking to the start spot in town and then walking back to her house after the 1K.

So glad your walk went well. I was in a day long workshop with a short lunch break starting at 12:30 so didn't get to do it. Drat!

It was a windy, warm day to do the All Iowa Walk-but it was great! Our 6-12 graders walked the 1K and the kids enjoyed getting outside.

Our school is walking that day at noon. The community has been invited to join us also. I wish it was a longer walk though. :)

So, how many of you are planning to do a walk on Oct. 7th at noon to help kick off the "Make Iowa the #1 Healthy State"? Have any of you pledged to join the walk and try and help the state as a whole become more healthy? I think being #19 is not a bad thing, but all the big newspapers have been running the adds, "Start Somewhere and Make Iowa A Healthy State." I am wondering if Wellmark hasn't pledged some money to the state government if they promote a healthier lifestyle for ALL Iowaians? Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of trying to get Iowa to #1 by 2016.
