Million Mile Movement - health one step at a time
November 25, 2015
Thanksgiving is here! It’s a time to be grateful, to surround yourself with loved ones – and a time to eat! Who doesn’t love the all the lovely food that becomes available during the last few months of the year? The resulting holiday weight gain doesn’t have to be an annual affair, however. It’s probably no coincidence the Million Mile Movement kicked off in October, just in time for Halloween candy sales. This program is a simple, free way to log your miles that you run, walk or swim (or convert miles from a handy dandy online tool from other kinds of exercise).
As part of a team or an individual, it becomes easy to put one foot in front of the other. A journey of a thousand (million) miles starts with a single step, after all. Lao Tzu said that. And it’s the wisdom behind Healthy Lee’s program. Set a goal. Start small. Be accountable. Celebrate your progress. Prepare for a year of healthy living. Seems like a great idea. That’s why EnSite has signed on as a community partner for the program. And it’s not too late for you to start. Sign up through Dec. 29 or find out more at healthylee.com/million-mile-movement.
We’ll keep working toward making places within our community with complete streets and walkable neighborhoods. And we’ll be running, walking, biking right alongside you on our way to a healthier, greener, happier Southwest Florida.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at EnSite. Now get out there and walk your turkey off!
