As I sit in the library, peering outside wishing it would stop snowing so I could walk home more comfortably, I stopped to think about the benefits of the LTC bus strike. What is all this walking with my heavy school bag doing for me besides breaking my back?
Well did you know that according to Self Growth.com, research has shown that
"people who walk approximately 20-25 miles per week outlive those who don't walk by several years."
That's right ladies and gents! On average, every minute of walking can extend your life by 1.5 - 2 minutes! Not to mention that walking an extra 20 minutes a day (which is what most of us are doing) will burn off 7 pounds of body fat per year.

Take that L.T.C!
