Why walk? According to the American Heart Association “Heart disease is the country’s No. 1 killer. But by exercising for as little as 30 minutes each day you can reduce your risk. That’s what the American Heart Association’s start walking movement is all about.” Track your fitness activities with the American Heart Association by clicking here: www.startwalkingnow.org.
