I've been trying to walk as much as possible for an upcoming 24 hour race. Some days I can't find the time to fit in a walk in addition to my run. But on the days I can, I always enjoy it.
Some days I can convince a kid (or two, or three) to come with me, and those are my favorite walks of all.
Two days ago, I was contacted by the Salem Half Marathon. This is their inaugural year, and in addition to the half marathon, they are also having an 8K and a kids' run. Salem is so scenic, with rolling hills and an adorable downtown - the perfect place for a distance run. They have offered Two Bears Farm readers a discount of 20% off registration if you use the code BLOG20. Come out and run - it's sure to be a fun time, and afterwards they are having a post race party at the farmer's market with food, bands, and kids activities.
