About the Book
Power walking, also known as fitness or speed walking, is gaining popularity as an aging population looks for workout options that are good for their bodies and good for their wallets. This book includes expert tips and techniques for starting or expanding a power walking practice. Covering the author’s journey from non-athlete to dedicated power walker, it is entertaining, motivational and jam-packed with information. Here, power walking practice is contextualized through the author’s goal to complete a half marathon in each of the United States as she approaches 60 years old. The journey includes encounters with sketchy porta-potties and terrifying mini-planes, confessions of dubious road-trip food choices and tales of finish lines reached through sheer determination—all told with wit and wisdom. Part travelogue, part power walking guidebook, this engaging text will entertain, motivate and enlighten readers who are looking to start a fitness program or change up their workout routine.
