THE FOUNDERS OF EVERWALK, DIANA NYAD AND BONNIE STOLL, sent an email to those of us who pledged to walk at least 3 times a week in support of their EVERwalk Nation Movement with a treat for readers. The two women shared a book list that include a “lofty” selection, Thoreau’s “Walking”, as well as “A Million Steps” by Kurt Koontz, “Wanderlust” by Rebecca Solnit, “Wild by Cheryl Strayed, and four other offerings for adults and children.
There are books lists for runners, and it seems fitting that walkers should also be encouraged to find motivation, humor, and fictional amusement in reading.
hanks Diana and Bonnie!
If you have not yet investigated EverWalk and made the pledge, here’s a link to that website. Training is underway for the second epic walk, EverWalk New England, which originates in Boston MA on September 10, 2017 and ends at Cape Elizabeth, ME on September 16. There are a number of ways to join the group. Choose from epic and less-than-epic efforts.
See the WALKER RESOURCES page too for more supportive information. Runners, pass this link on to the reading walkers in your lives.
RUN AND WALK HAPPY!
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.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. 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.
