Walking is a means of travel by foot. People walk as a means of transportation, as a leisure activity, as a way of communing with nature, or as a pilgrimage. Walkability of city areas is a focus of urban planning.
“ For [Jane Austen and the readers of Pride and Prejudice], as for Mr. Darcy, [Elizabeth Bennett's] solitary walks express the independence that literally takes the heroine out of the social sphere of the houses and their inhabitants, into a larger, lonelier world where she is free to think: walking articulates both physical and mental freedom. ...more ”

[close] Book club for runners. People who love to run and read. A no pressure book club that is a lot of fun and a great way to bond with other runners. I believe that reading is a fantastic hobby as is running or jogging or even walking. In order to be a runner you only have to run, it doesn't say how fast or how long you have been doing it. Just the same for readers you don't have to read a book a day to be a great reader. Also you don't have to be a great writer or the best book reviewer to be a book lover. Lord knows I'm certainly not.
