The first Friday of April has marked this yearly event since 2004, in attempts to encourage a more active lifestyle in an increasingly sedentary age. The goal is straightforward, and perhaps more easily accomplished in San Francisco, one of that nation’s most walkable cities, than elsewhere.
But what if you’re in a more suburban area, living more than a couple of miles from work but still wish to participate? Try walking over to your nearest transit stop and fill some of the distance gap with BART, AC Transit, or other local transit agencies. Any way to integrate more walking, and less driving, on your way to work on Friday is sure to fulfill the spirit of the day!
And for those who want to have a little social networking fun, and a chance to win a prize, check out this SF Weekly article about how you can connect with Facebook and Twitter today.
