Day 12 About. com Walking Information
I just received an email from Wendy at About.com for walkers ... this is an outstanding site with just about everything you ever wanted to know about walking. This week she is letting us know about plans to help you prepare for a 5 K, 10 K, Half and full Marathon! Of course there is also some news about the recent winners of the Best Walker Friendly Half Marathon the Minds in Motion K W Walking Classic!! and here is the scoop from about.com for walkers'...
"Walkers nominated and voted from among the finalists for the favorite walker friendly 13.1-mile half marathon.
Minds in Motion K W Walking Classic
The K W Walking Classic is held in late -September in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. It's a smaller event, limited to 1,500 walkers. It has good bling for the bucks (or the loonies!), with a finisher medal and long-sleeved technical T-shirt for all finishers. A nominator said, "This race is the best because it is devoted to WALKERS! A walker's only half marathon with great energy, the best bling, gleaming finishing medals, well organized, most welcoming inspirational event. And we do it all to raise funds for mental health initiatives in our region."Make sure you check out this informative website ... one of my personal favorites.
Tonight we hosted week one of the Walk On Strong Power Walking workshops ... such a lot of fun!
Walk On Strong!
