Love Your Heart
2014 is the year of the treadmill and the brand new Izzy’s Treadmill Gym is celebrating with a special event every month this year. On Sat 15 Feb we’ll be hosting a Walking Valentine’s Brunch!
Most meals, coffee, beer, are consumed sitting. Why? Maybe because for most of human history, and in plenty of places still today, you’re on your feet all day. At the end of a long day of physical labor, of course sitting down for a meal or drink with friends and family is a great idea.
News Flash: It’s not the 16th century anymore.
Here in the 21st century, in the developed world, a lot of people spend long days sitting in front of flat-screens. What do we do at the end of that day? We still sit for food and drink.
And so as our Valentine’s celebration of Love & Good Health, Izzy’s Gym invites you to a Valentine’s Walking Brunch!
At the opening event of Izzy’s Gym on 20 January we walked 10.2 VR miles in 5-1/4 hours. We walked in solidarity with Lawrence Lessig and the NH Rebellion Campaign Finance Reform walkers. We chose that time & distance because they walked 10.2 RL miles in 5-1/4 hours on that cold and snowy day. In continuing support of their movement our Valentine’s Walking Brunch will also be 10.2 miles in 5-1/4 hours.
