Put Some Spring in Your Steps

National Walk to Work Day: April 2, 2010
Though it's surely impractical to walk to work if your job is a highway or two away, spring is nonetheless a perfect time to appreciate the joys of walking. If you do work in town, consider using a little of your lunch time to put your sneaks to the concrete.

To help inspire your efforts, the library has many DVDs and books to help make your walking exercise plan fun and useful. Here's a quick sample...

Try Fast Walking by Ron Laird, four-time race walk Olympian, or exercise videos by Leslie Sansone or Debbie Rocker.

You can also make walking a family event:

Connecticut Walk Book from the CT Forest & Park Association
50 Hikes in Connecticut by David Gerry & Sue Hardy
Short Nature Walks in Connecticut by Eugene Keyarts
Country Walks in Connecticut by Susan D. Cooley

Also find @ your library added info about the Airline Trail, among other very local walking pleasures.
