According to the 2010 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index®, Iowa is #19 in the nation when it comes to being physically, emotionally and mentally healthy. We know we can do better, so we plan to claim the #1 spot by 2016. It’s ambitious, but with your help, we can help change Iowa and show the rest of the nation the road to wellness. Take the pledge to help create a healthier, happier Iowa today!
Instead of enjoying my usual trip home over the lunch hour today, I did the Start Somewhere Wa1k in Altoona. The 1k took place all over the state, with all sorts of folks participating. Since it wasn't a very long distance, it was a great way for people who aren't necessarily physically active to get involved! This was definitely a welcome change from my boring routine on the treadmill...

Got to experience the pretty scenery along the trails from the Altoona Campus to Prairie Heritage Civic Plaza...and the fresh, fall air! :)
Enough idyllic chatter...it's now time to clean my house...not nearly as fun as a leisurely stroll...
