I have the kind of job someone once described as “sit and spread!” I have learned over the years that if I can take a good walk in the afternoon I feel absolutely re-born. Not only am I burning extra calories, I get to breathe fresh air and blow away the cobwebs in my brain. I return to my work refreshed and energized for whatever the afternoon throws my way.

The great thing about walking is that you can tailor it to you own needs. You can walk fast or slow, uphill or not, one mile or ten. There are no rules and the only cost is a pair of decent tennis shoes. So put on your shoes and meet me on the loop!
