Walk on

June 29, 2012 at 2:12 PM Leave a comment

I walk at least 75 percent of the time lately to get where I need to go. Not just for the exercise (though Harley Pasternak says it’s a key step to staying in shape), but also to save $ and because I have very little patience for the unreliable transit system here in Toronto. (You may have read the occasional rant-y tweet from me about streetcar breakdowns…).

And a new study from the World Health Organization has figured out that short stints on foot rather than by car or motorbike would avoid the death of 108 men and 79 women a year in Catalonia, Spain, alone.

Walking FTW.
