Walking with Rosie

One of the side benefits of switching over from running to racewalking is that my wife, Rosie, decided that she would also start walking in the mornings. Today she asked about how to walk faster so I gave her a quick introduction to racewalking. I walked along with her, our minature Schnauzar Natty in tow, and she was able to keep up a 15 minute mile for the entire 2.5 mile course. Natty also kept up fine and only did a couple of "pit stops" along the way.
