Celebrate National Walking Day on April 7
Published on April 06, 2021
CHEYENNE – Wednesday April 7th is National Walking Day and encourages Americans of all ages to get out and stretch their legs and get their hearts pumping. The American Heart Association sponsors this day to remind people about the health benefits of taking a walk. Wear your sneakers (or take them with you) to work, and at some point in the day, take a 30-minute walk.
Here are some great ways to make that 30-minutes more enjoyable:
- Wear comfortable clothes.
- Take a friend to pass the time.
- Make sure to stretch those muscles.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Move your arms, too.
- Make sure you have good posture.
Take thirty minutes out of your day to go for a walk. Find a trail near you or walk around your neighborhood. You can also visit a local park or walk on your treadmill. Take your canine pals with you, too. They need the cardiovascular workout, too! It’s a perfect excuse to get outside and enjoy our terrific Cheyenne Greenway system celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year. As we celebrate the 30th Anniversary, we want to hear from you! We encourage the public to submit Greenway pictures, videos, and stories on social media using the hashtag #Greenway30. You can also send pictures, videos, and stories using our online form: https://bit.ly/3rsJp9K. Submitted items may be publicized by the City on their website, social media, or other print material.
