Walking Reduces Heart Risk As Much As Running

Last updated 4 years ago

"Brisk walking can reduce a person's risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol just as much as running can.

The finding came from a new study published in the journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology which examined 33,060 runners in the National Runners' Health Study and 15,045 walkers in the National Walkers' Health Study." 
 
Now that you know this good news, why not get outside and walk or run and get the heart pumping and blood flowing?  Follow these links to top trails, parks and paths in the Metro area.
