National Walking Day

Spring is here! Get outside, get some fresh air and a little exercise. Today is the perfect day. It’s National Walking Day!

National Walking Day was created by the American Heart Association to remind people about the health benefits to walking. This day is also used to encourage us to begin, maintain, or expand the healthy habit of regular walks.

The American Heart Association encourages everyone to walk at least 30 minutes a day. If you are new at it or in poor health, start with just a short walk. For the average person, set your sites on a 30 minute walk today. For the very experienced walkers or runners, make it a goal to walk 10% over your normal walk.
