The Walking Man

I'm amazed by people who carve the time out of their lives to accomplish a lengthy hike. My friend Jen O. in Washington has hiked the Pacific Crest and Continental Divide Trails in two summers - one summer for each (I wish she would maintain a blog - she's an incredible and adventurous person). She's my age, thirty-something.

Passing through Tallahassee this week was Roy Dye, a 68 year old, one-legged man. He's just not walking across Florida but walking across the country - Florida to California - to motivate and inspire individuals into healthier living. Check out his website, www.IronManWalking.com. If he can get out and walk, there's no excuse NOT to visit the gym.
