SR Blogs: Walking Different At 50

The  Methow Valley Sport Trails Association is opening portions of its 120-mile groomed nordic trail system to bicycles this year. Rich Landers/SR Outdoors blog provides more information on the fat-tired snow bikes above and the Methow Valley trail system here. (SR photo)

Featured SR Blog: That's how GU basketball coach Mark Few described one of his banged-up players in a story by Jim Meehan this morning. I hadn't realized that 50 was the point at which a person's gait begins to resemble that of Grandpa on “The Real McCoys.” Guess I'm overdue to begin showing signs of having a hitch in my git-along. Or whatever. So anyway, if you are 50 or older and thought you walked normally, you might want to check again/Paul Turner, The Slice. More here.

Question: Do you walk your 50 years old or older?
