Why I Walk
Brooke Joyce

Decorah, Iowa

I used the summer “Walk More Connect More” challenge as an opportunity to combine a daily 30-minute walk with our 2 1/2 year-old’s need for a 1 p.m. nap. So for most days this summer, I strolled my son during my lunch break. He didn’t always nap, but we both grew to love that time of day and the knowledge that we had that time together.
