National Take a Hike Day. Regardless of what happens on election day, November 6, we’re all going to need a long walk in the woods this year.
It’s a worthy day to forget about V02 max and heart rate monitors and wheels and speed. We can all take a page from Thoreau and reap the mental benefits of slowing down and taking in the outside world at a walking pace. Plus, it costs nothing. Anyone can do it. It’s family-friendly, and fresh air is good for the soul.
