Want to join in a fun virtual walking challenge to jump start your walking motivation? The Idita-Walk tracks along with the Iditarod sled dog race. Instead of mushing for 30 miles a day for 35 days, walkers walk 30 minutes a day for 35 days - and they walk wherever they are. You don't have to walk from Anchorage to Nome, you can just walk around your neighborhood. Register for the Idita-Walk and submit your walking log to earn a pin. You can buy other logo items. It benefits youth charities in Nome, Alaska and enlists walkers all across the continent.

If you're walking outdoors, be sure to dress for winter weather. I've had problems with cold feet when wearing my usual mesh fitness walking shoes without doing anything different. But I've found 10 ways to keep your feet warm on cold walks.
