Hike for Health 2021
This popular series of Health Walks on Monday mornings is coming to end. The last walk is next week, Monday, June 28th at 10:30am. We will meet in the Cumberland Mountain State Park behind the restaurant at the boat launch for the kayaks and canoes. (Next to the wooden bridge.)
CMC/Covenant will be providing a boxed lunch after the hike. If you would like lunch and you have not already given your name to Naiad Kuhlman please call (931) 459-7019 so they know how many lunches to provide.
Exercise is vital to your overall health. The American Heart Association recommends fitting in at least 150 minutes of heart-pumping physical activity each week. Being physically active is important to prevent heart disease and stroke, which are the nation’s top causes of death. Studies also show that exercise goes a long way in helping cancer patients stay strong through treatments and ward off future cancer reoccurrence.
Hike for Health is a weekly one-mile hiking series that can help you achieve a half marathon in just 13 weeks!
From the beginner to the avid hiker, everyone is welcome to attend. Hike for Health encourages you to take steps towards a healthier you with group hiking opportunities.
When hiking, it’s important to be prepared. Look to the weather forecast and dress accordingly with comfortable clothing and shoes, take water and a light snack, and wear sunscreen. One may also want to wear insect repellent.
These are “all weather” hikes. This means that the leader will always show up at the trail-head regardless of the weather forecast. If there is a consensus of the hikers at 10:30am that the weather is too bad for an enjoyable hike then it will be cancelled.
