      I need to get back into the habit of daily walking. I lost lots of weight years ago when I started walking. Since I quit I gained it all back. I need to get back to it. October, Walktober sounds like the time to start.

    My husband and I started walking in the spring, and we have continued. Sometimes only 1-3 miles a day, but every little bit helps. We both have lost weight and feel better. Excited to join others to keep our momentum going into the fall.

    As part of its focus on on walkable communities and pedestrian safety, the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) is hosting a website mdot.maryland.gov/walktober with information about Walktober and Walk Maryland Day, which is Wednesday, October 6th! Check it out when you can!

    Even though I was traveling today, I still got my steps in! It’s always super hard on travel days, so I count this as a win. 10,000 steps ✔

    We plan to take our puppies on all of our walks this month. They surely have plenty of energy for it!

    The old adage “Move it or lose it” should be changed to “Move it AND lose it.” Keep moving friends!
