The Idita-Walk is an event to promote physical fitness in the spirit of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race.
Most dog owners know about the Iditarod and have an appreciation for it simply in the spirit of the amazing physical accomplishments as well as emotional ties we have to our dogs and their abilities.
The thought of being able to join in or even go watch usually exists in our heads as one of those “it would be fun” statements but the possibility really isn’t there. Both from a logistical standpoint and a dog breed technicality, participating leaves us out of this event. A Weimaraner gets a bit cold with no coat and the Labrador raised in San Diego might not be acclimated for the Alaska event!
The Idita-Walk is an event to promote physical fitness in the spirit of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. The Iditarod Sled Dog Race is 1049 miles long from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. To complete the Idita-Walk, simply walk 30 minutes a day for 35 days between February 1, 2010 to March 31, 2010 for a total of 1049 minutes Any combination of minutes will work – just reach 1049 during the 59 day event!
You can even count running or jogging! For those of you who have signed up for K9 Cross Training and are getting your personal walking, jogging or running workouts sent to you weekly its even easier. If you aren’t in this program seriously take a look at it.
A fitness program that doesn’t require a gym or to go out and meet someone at another location is much easier to succeed with our busy lives and lack of time. Your dog as your most loyal training partner means you can stay on this fitness program AND you get a personal coach inspiring you with what to do each day on a weekly basis.
In the new decade of 2010 the trend is to Escape Modern Day Stresses and “Return to Sacred Places”. What a great way to jump on the trend.
