On the Road with Sheryl, Ruben, and Xavier

This week, we had the pleasure of running into another walker, Jeanie Grzybowski! With the help of her husband, Joe, she plans on walking 1,800 miles in 116 days on her way from Key West to Maine, dodging traffic along the East Coast Greenway (the nation’s longest biking and walking route).

We were so happy to be able to share some of our Theramu with Jeanie, as she was suffering terribly from blisters (and we’ve all been in THOSE painful shoes)! They were such sweet people, and an amazing team–Joe drops Jeanie off, parks the car five miles ahead, rides his back back, and walks the rest with her each day.

It was wonderful to connect with them, and we wish them all the best of luck on the rest of their EPIC journey!

Message From Sheryl – Highlight of the Week

First and foremost, this week is about gratitude. I am so thankful to have the support of each and every one of you while I am on this journey!

As we near the marker for the first full month of Walking With America, it’-s finally starting to sink in that this is reality–and truth be told, pushing Bobbie from highways to side roads, fighting against blisters, avoiding sunburn, and sometimes not even knowing where our next bathroom or drink of water will be can be stressful, to say the least!

With that said, I know that this would all be IMPOSSIBLE without the hard work, love, support, and friendship of this wonderful network. Thank you for every text, phone call, email, and social media post–you are all wonderful, and I am so grateful to count you all as my Dear Walker Friends along this journey. I believe in Walking With America; I believe in our mission to help our nation achieve a better state of health and happiness; and most of all, I believe in each and every one of you!

Asking people to change their daily attitude towards physical and mental health can be tough. Believe, me I know that carving out time in our hectic schedules to walk isn’t always easy, especially if you don’t already have an exercise routine. They say it takes 21 days to form a habit, and we’re out to help everyone in America develop healthier habits!

Luckily, when it comes to improving your health and happiness through walking, you don’t have to set out on a 6-month journey (unless , of course, you are crazy in the BEST way possible)! The great thing about walking is that you can take it slow and build from there.

Saturday Mornings – Walk With Me!

Because Walking With America seeks to help people create happier, healthier lives, part of our initiative is making walking a part of our regular routine. In the true Walking With America spirit, I want to remind you that you are all invited to join me me in my weekly Saturday morning walk!

#walkwithme as a way to shake off the last remnants of sleep, after your first cup of coffee, when the dog starts whining, or whenever works best for your schedule! Our ultimate goal is to get everyone in the nation walking together and committed to their health and happiness.

No matter when you walk, don’t forget to wear yellow and to invite a friend or family member to join you! I can’t wait to hear your stories, share in your successes, and see your Saturday morning photos and videos using the social media links below!

Walking With America (WWA) is Sheryl Lynn’s six-month mission of walking from Key West, FL to San Francisco, CA, all while encouraging others to take their health and happiness into their own hands.

At its core, WWA is about creating healthier, happier individuals through personal accountability, empowerment, and community. Sheryl’s feel-good community of walkers offers a message of support and a call to action, unlocking health and happiness one step at a time–and even better, sharing it with those around you.

My name is Sheryl Lynn, and I invite you all to #walkwithme–become a part of the movement and contribute an integral piece of my ultimate vision: to walk together, share a moment of our lives, and come to a happier, healthier understanding of our world.
