    I’m actually working on a post about walking and how to make it more interesting. I’ve had my FitBit One for almost a month now, and I love it!

      Listening to music or podcasts helps a lot. I do that when I go for walks. Or go with someone–like Michael and the dog. 🙂

    I have been a walker for decades. Through the first jogging craze, through -ercize fads left and right, through the current obsession with running. Me? I walk.

    Tips: Think of walking as controlled falling (it is!). Work on lengthening your stride (the amount of time you’re falling before the other foot catches you).

    Get a dog! They are great companions while walking! And will always go “just a bit further”!

    Don’t think this is just until you’re fit enough to run. Walking is actually a healthier/better exercise than running!

    If you live somewhere with snowy, frigid winters work with your school board/city to open up a public building (often a school) at night a couple evenings a week for community walks in a safe environment.

      I agree! Having a dog helps a lot!! Bella could go forever if we let her.

      Your tip for winter walking was great. You could also put on snowshoes. 😀

    That Malcom in the Middle pic totally caught my attention!

    Walking alone does wonder for the body.
