The EverWalk Blog

Each week EverWalk will post a new blog highlighting aspects of our epic EverWalk initiative to create a World of EverWalkers!

From Bonnie Stoll’s tips about fitness to the ideas & initiatives of our EverWalk Nation to guest posts from our Ambassadors, please check back weekly for a new blog. 

And always, be inspired by the unique and powerful voice of Diana Nyad:

The Enlightened Solitude of Walking

We constantly tout the value of community here at EverWalk. On our Ambassador-led First Saturdays, on our FB Group Page, on our EPICS through the great outdoor corridors of America, in our media statements, we speak of relishing the community of walkers we are sharing and always looking to develop further.

And yet with all that said about walking together, there is profound value in setting out on our own.

COME BACK EACH WEEK FOR A NEW BLOG ABOUT WALKING!

Why I EverWalk

Why I EverWalk

I walk every day.
When I don’t walk as much as I like to on a daily basis, I get antsy, anxious, antisocial — not to mention a lot of other unpleasant words not beginning with a.
As someone who spends far far too much time in my head, now that we are all glued to some “smart” device feeding us far more useless drivel than any of us could possibly claim to need, my daily existence feels like a constant stream of words, trivia, news, information, misinformation, and junk.
