We certainly don’t have to remind 3-Day walkers of the many benefits of outdoor walking; they may be among the most walk-conscious citizens there are (right up there with mail carriers, park rangers and tour guides). But this Wednesday, March 30 is Take a Walk in the Park Day, so regular folks will be coming out in droves to put their feet to the pavement (or grass or trails) and enjoy the lovely sights, sounds and smells of a an early springtime walk in the park.
Well of course we couldn’t let a day like this pass without putting our own 3-Day spin on it, so we want to invite each and every one of you to celebrate Take a Walk in the Park Day with your fellow 3-Dayers. Here’s what we’d love to see you do:
Meet-up With Your 3-Day Coaches and Fellow Walkers – Coaches in each 3-Day event location will be hosting official Take a Walk in the Park training walks in their cities. These walks (none of them more than 3 miles) are open to all 3-Day participants and friends, and they will be a fantastic way for you to meet or reunite with your coaches and fellow walkers.
