Whether they know it or not, today, people all over the country, are honoring National Walking Day.
The day, promoted by the American Heart Association is meant to promote getting active to maintain heart health.
Kyra Brookins knows how important it is to get cardiovascular exercise.
As an Exercise Physiologist for Trinity Health she says every bit counts.
(Kyra Brookins, Exercise Physiologist) "Cardiovascular health is one of the biggest things you can do to prevent heart attacks, coronary artery disease and other cardiovascular related illnesses that are preventable. Good walking, jogging, light aerobic activity is the first step to working towards good heart health - at a young age and in older age as well."
Brookins also encourages people to get outside this spring; whether to walk your dog or push your child in a stroller.
