Why I Walk
Jessica Wegner

West Union, Iowa

After having our second daughter, I needed a reason to get out of the house and get back in shape after being on bedrest for over 5 weeks. I began walking our 5-year-old to school every morning and volunteering on walking school bus days. It became a habit.

We then began going on family walks in the evening instead of watching TV. I’m in the best shape I have been in, even before kids! Life is about the choices we make, not only for ourselves as adults, but as the example we set for your children.

I now volunteer for our walking school bus and enjoy walking around the neighborhood, downtown, at the rec center, and on the trails.
