Walking Wellness

Last fall, Mary Kay Wardlaw and several other WIN Wyoming members attended a Walking Wellness program. They brought back 4 books written and co-written by the presenter, Robert Sweetgall. Rob has walked across America seven times since 1982. In his former life, he was a chemical engineer. After losing several family members to heart disease, he decided to take his health message on the road (literally). Here are some of the highlights I captured from his books.
