emoticon Walking is the best form of exercise I know. It's easy and doesn't take a lot of thinking. My dog and I love our afternoon "strolls." emoticon

Walk and run to the best you you can be.

I'm sure walking does all kinds of wonderful things. At least that's what my health professionals tell me. For instance, increased circulation, which brings oxygen-rich blood to the heart and brain, greater lung capacity, keeping the body a little more flexible. Keep up the good work!

Be a blessing to others.

In my job, I walk all day. Basically nonstop (30 minutes for lunch). I wear a pedometer and am averaging 16,000 steps a day. I know this is doing wonders for my legs. There is no excess fat on them! I am 64 and in reasonable health, considering my history. just wondering, does all this walking have any other benefit other than fit legs? Oh, this walking also includes 4 floors of stairs done probably 4 times per day.
