April 7, 2017
NATIONAL WALK TO WORK DAY EFFORT
This national day was officially declared by US Department of Health and Human Services Secretary, Tommy G. Thompson, in 2004. Participating in this holiday means you are willing to spend 30 minutes walking. If you tend to work on your computer at a coffee shop ‘office’ on many days, that’s a great spot to finish!
This event could be the trial run for a potential summer challenge in which you walk 30 minutes to work (or part of the way) and back at least one day a week. A summer challenge should represent a physical effort that, performed in the warmer and usually dryer weather of this season, allows enjoyment of the outdoors and extra daylight and introduces pleasant variety into your exercise life.
You’ll be reminded often that spring is the season to plan for summer!

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.

I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
