I like to take the occasional walk. I go to the Davenport river front at Lindsey Park and will walk to the Isle of Capri and back, or lately around my neighborhood, because the bike path is right at the end of my block. It's good to get out when it's nice out and get some fresh air and sun. Does wonders for your psyche and your body.

According to WQAD, the State of Iowa is encouraging residents to get up and go for a walk.

On Wednesday, October 4th, each city in the state are holding "group walks." If you want to walk with a group in and around the state, go here. Iowa ranks number 19 on the list of healthiest states.

I guess I should update my iPod.
