Just keep walking....walking....walking

Sometimes I feel like Dory in "Finding Nemo" (just keep swimming...swimming...)  And I wonder if this walking actually does any good - most people who are really thin and fit run don't they, not walk?  I haven't ran since I was in my 20's. (unless you count one lap around my basement)  I certainly don't plan to start again now.  But I recently read that walking is great for you - even stop-and-start walking!  Apparently it takes some energy to get moving again and that burns calories and is good for your heart too.  To that end, I have decided to "train" for a 5k walk that will raise funds to further research on heart disease.  Where would I be without the advancements in medical technology that enabled my doctors to find my heart disease and provide a solution to keep my heart pumping?   You can find out more about the HeartWalk , and maybe even join my team (Schmitheads) by following this link:  March 18, 2012 HeartWalk
If you don't want to walk/run, you can sponsor here:  Sponsorship Page for Tari DePoy

Definitely not Me, but you gotta admit it's inspiring!

Until next time - don't give up - just keep walking!
