Here are some links for walking, spirituality, and lifestyle design that I think you might find interesting
Marathon Walking Site This site has a wealth of information about training and gear for walking marathons. There is also a forum where you can ask questions and get in touch with other marathon walkers.
About.com’s Walking Site If you’re looking for some great tips and ideas about walking in general, or specifically about walking events and such, this is the place to go. There are some great newsletters, links to everything you could possibly want or need, and wonderfully inspiring articles. If you’re just beginning to walk, I recommend signing up for their “Let’s Get Walking” e-mail course. From there you can advance to the “Walk of Life” 10 week walking and weight-loss e-mail course, and then if you’re feeling really motivated, move on to the Half-Marathon or full Marathon courses. You can see all their walking programs here
WOW Power Walking This site has some great stuff for learning to walk faster. I highly recommend the DVD if you “catch the walking bug” and plan to do events and such. Some great tips and ideas there for walking much more efficiently
Prevention Magazine’s Walking Site is a wonderful place for all kinds of gadgets, forums, articles, ideas, motivation, and tips for walking of any kind, from casual strolling to hard-core speed walking. This is a really fun site to browse and explore to get you motivated to walk! It’s also a fun place to meet new walking friends and post your triumphs! Check it out!
The God Journey is one of my favourite places to visit. Inspiring , uplifting, real, humorous, and always interesting. I love their podcast when I walk, I enjoy the books these guys write and publish, and I love the message of freedom.
Ransomed Heart Ministries is a powerful place to go for deep and lasting emotional and spiritual healing. It’s one of the few places where I can highly recommend everything they publish and teach. Amazing stuff there. We’ve seen huge transformation in our own lives through their conferences and books. Highly, highly recommended.
Steve Brown is a fascinating guy. He always has great articles, books to recommend, and wonderfully challenging podcasts. I like how he makes me think and challenges me to look outside the box.
Tim Ferriss‘ blog is probably the most interesting blog on the net. If you don’t know it, you need to check it out. Every week is a new adventure! I find him funny, fascinating, eclectic, and challenging.
Jonathan Mead is following in the footsteps of Tim Ferriss and has a fascinating blog as well. Very worth your time. I would absolutely start with his Beginner’s Guide posts to get a foothold in his philosophy. Great stuff here!
