I'm about to throw my weight behind the only health care reform measure that makes sense in the long run.
Against my more sedentary instincts, I'm taking part in the iWALK challenge — Sonoma County's program to encourage people like me to get out from behind their computers and move their behinds.
And I invite you to join me, starting Monday at noon. We'll be meeting on the sidewalk in front of our building here at 427 Mendocino Ave. for an hour-long (30 minutes each way) walk through downtown Santa Rosa and along the Prince Memorial Greenway.
If you miss us, we'll be out there again next week and every Monday, rain or shine, through the end of the campaign on May 15.
If you're a fast walker, you may be disappointed.
Call this the iPLOD campaign.
Editorial Writer Jim Sweeney will be joining us. So is Columnist Chris Smith, he of pink tutu fame. (Yes, that's him in that iWALK poster. He's my inspiration for exercise if not day wear.) Santa Rosa City Council member Jane Bender and possibly a few other community leaders will be there as well.
Why? Well, we all know the reason why.
We need it. I need it.
