Triangle Heart Walk and Heart Healthy Challenge

Heart-Healthy Challenge is simple.  "Improve your heart rate with regular exercise." 

We were excited recently when our local YMCA challenged us all with the "Heart-Healthy Challenge!"  It is similar to Go Red for Women.  I love that the Heart-Healthy Challenge is simple and effective.  Now, I feel more cognizant of the fact that every work out matters!

Think about this "You could gain two hours of life expectancy for every hour of regular exercise." How about that!  Talk about tangible numbers.  I can go for that - 2 hours of life for each regular exercise hour.  :)  That's not even counting how much better you feel.

The Y and the American Heart Association is challenging you to get more active with the Triangle Heart Walk.   

When: The Triangle Heart Walk will take place on Sunday, September 25th, 2011 at the RBC Center in Raleigh, NC.

The Walk starts and finishes at the RBC Center in Raleigh, NC. There will be three Wellness Communities that focus on the following topics: Create Hope, Inspire Change and Celebrate Success. Each community will be distinguised by the colors red, green, and blue.

Hope you can attend and like me, hopefully, this can help you see why we chose wellness and healthy living as a life-style.  The benefits are many.  Does this make a difference in your initial thoughts about exercising regularly? 
Warmly, Carolina Mama
