I started Nordic Walking because my neighbour (Tracy Burke) took the teacher training & taught me how to do it, & loaned me her poles to try out.
I was looking for something more than walking for exercise as I can no longer run with knee problems. I liked it & bought my own poles.
Then I signed up for the 2008 PEI Marathon Event and completed the 10K Nordic Walk division.
I am hoping to meet some other Nordic Walkers during my stay in Florida this winter.
