The walking club known as the "Milton Milers" is set to kick off their first event this upcoming Sunday, March 15th at 2pm. Starting point will be the new Pretzel Factory Restaurant at Deerfield Place off of Hwy 9. Many thanks to owners Steve, Jill and Pierce Erhardt and Ruthann Sinor for offering up a free Pretzel (See coupon above) for participants.
The Milton Milers was established in 2009 by Miltonians Tina D'aversa and Tim & Ginger Enloe . Tina had been an active walker for many years. While in shape in their past lives, Tim & Ginger knew they had to get back on the wagon. Thus, the "Milton Milers" came to be. Among the benefits of the Milers are weight loss, endurance, and friendly companionship.
The Milton Milers was founded on the idea that health and wellness can be achieved through a planned walking program. The health benefits of walking are well-documented. As the number of individuals who run competitively has peaked, the number of walkers has steadily risen. A major reason for this increase is the awareness that walking is easier on the skeletal joints than is running. Yet the cardiovascular benefits of walking can equal those of running.
In addition, the mental and emotional benefits of walking such as the reduction of stress and the mental "high" are ever present.
With an increasing number of people participating in everything from recreational walking to competitive walking events, there needs to be a common ground for sharing ideas about workouts, equipment, training, and a host of other issues. Runners have had this opportunity for many years but the growing number of walkers have not had a commensurate venue. The Milton Milers was founded to help address these deficiencies.
Through the activities of the Milton Milers Club, the many aspects of walking-related issues can be addressed in a cohesive, organized fashion resulting in a supporting and nurturing environment for the Milton Georgia walking community.
