In the 1980’s Jim Fixx and I were one of the first to give a pre-race clinic for a cancer charity. Fixx was the author of the best seller “The Complete Book of Running.” Now, more than 35 years later, there are few weekends which do not have some type of scheduled charity walk.
Walking is one of the best exercises you can do for yourself. It is a gentle way to speed up your metabolism and if you walk for enough time, you can burn off some calories. It also is kinder to the feet, ankles, knees and hips. The hardest part is to get yourself out the door!
