Anyway, here are some interesting tid-bits about walking that have come across my desk today:
First, this message arrived in my in-box from a listserv on public spaces:
Prevention Magazine has published its list of the 100 most walkable cities in the U.S. The top 10 are:
1. Madison, WI (Yeah for you, Lisa!)
2. Austin, TX
3. San Francisco, CA
4. Charlotte, NC
5. Seattle, WA
6. Henderson, NV
7. San Diego, CA (Wahoo, Sally, Chris and Neal!)
8. San Jose, CA
9. Chandler, AZ
10. Virginia Beach, VA
I don't know the criteria that was used to determine this list. That alone would be interesting stuff. I am going to look into it.
Then, I was approached by a colleague to help coordinate some conference materials and funders. My organization co-sponsors a conference that takes place once every three years called "Shaping a Healthy Future." The last conference, in 2005, featured Mark Fenton as a workshop speaker. He is listed in the 2005 conference materials as a "pedestrian advocate."
I want to be a pedestrian advocate! Seriously!
