It’s Walk to Work Day
In my perusing of the Internets today, I found out that today, April 6th, is Walk to Work Day. Walk to Work Day is celebrated on the first Friday of April, which makes sense, the weather 'should' be getting nice enough out to be able to take a decent stroll.
This year, there was no way I was going to walk to work. It is cold out there, it's like Winter will never end. Silver lining moment, I haven't seen any mosquitos in months. If you want to participate by walking, and you can do this any day, there are some tips you can use:
- Dress for the weather
- Wear shoes meant to walk in, bring your work shoes with you
- Give yourself extra time to get to work
Now, if you have a long commute this may not be a holiday you can celebrate, but, if you can walk to work, it's a great way to get your steps in.
I think I'll skip this year, and shoot for another day.
