Walk it off!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released this encouraging report showing that the proportion of adults who take a 10-minute walk at least once a week increased 62% between 2005 and 2010! Even though this still falls short of the federal guidelines for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise each week, these findings are a big step in the right direction.  Even better is that this increase in walking applies to all races, ages, and regions of the country.
