In my spare time, however, I've been walking across Virginia. Well not really walking across Virginia which would doubtless be even hotter than Denver and logistically problematic. I'm talking traversing in a virtual sense. I urge my patients to find an exercise activity that engages their interest as well as their heart. Used to be Jazzercise for me, step aerobics too, but that was years and a lot of knee cartilage ago. Walking with a dog is a personal joy, but I've got no pooch on-site with whom to mosey. So instead, I'm walking solo across the United States with an eye on the West Coast by 2020.
Wanna' come along? Check out the TransAmerica Trail (aka Tools to keep you active) at http://exercise.lbl.gov/index.html. Sign me up as your partner--they'll put you on my map and me on yours at the same starting point. I'm walker number 65471 about to enter Kentucky but happy to join you back on the Virginia coast.
