MapMyFitness Walking Adventure! #ToyotaRAV4Adventure

Everyday I hop on my treadmill and walk in place. I actually enjoy walking on the treadmill and listening to music for 45 minutes. But sometimes, I get bored and feel like quitting.

The other day while talking to my co-worker about my predicament, she suggested we walk around the school campus and the surrounding neighborhood. I have worked at my school for 2.5 years and I have never ever walked around the campus or neighborhood.

Because I am participating in the Toyota RAV4 Adventure Club, I knew that I could go online and map our route. We went on the site, plugged in our location and mapped where we would be walking. It was super easy to do!

Once we started mapping our route we realized if we walked around the campus then into town, it was a mile. That was perfect because I walk 2 miles a day and this would be perfect for my fitness routine.

We started our walk and it was beautiful. We walked through a memorial garden on campus. We also have a small amphitheater on the property as well. The trees were beautiful and the path easy to walk. The road into town is the same road I take in the car but on foot it looks completely different.

We walked by shops and businesses. I even discovered a new shop that sells beads and handmade jewelry. I have to visit soon. We also walked by a beautiful nursery that you cannot see from the car.

The whole walk was really nice and we will do it again, in the fall. Unfortunately, it was very hot that day and we decided to shelve more walking until it cools down. Plus, once school starts up again, we can invite some of our other co-workers along as well.

I discovered a whole new town on my 2 mile walk around Cashiers, NC. What a cool unexpected adventure! It was actually quite nice getting out and walking and taking a break from the treadmill! The Toyota RAV4 Adventure Club is the perfect place to map out a fitness plan.
