Motivation for walking

Facts for motivating you to get out and walk from life.gaiam.com

  • Walking one mile a day burns 100 calories. You could lose ten pounds in a year without changing your eating habits.
  • A recent Harvard study shows that walking at a moderate pace (3mph) for up to 3 hours a week — or 30 minutes a day — can cut the risk of heart disease in women by as much as 40%.
  • The Journal of the American Medical Association found that women who walk in their 30s and 40s can greatly reduce their risk of breast cancer.

I love walking to catch a breathtaking view or two!  The view of the Seattle Space Needle and Puget Sound brings me back to the park often.

I also love the view of Puget Sound and Mount Rainier from this lookout point on Maury Island.
