    Mindful Walking in NYC: The Great Saunter

    Submitted by Jonathan S. Kaplan, Ph.D.

    New York City is notorious for its stressful, fast pace.  And, with the coming of warmer weather, there will be plenty of athletic races in which New Yorkers can strut their stuff (quickly, of course).  While it is possible to be mindful while running, perhaps you've wondered if there is such a thing as a mindful walking event in NYC.  Well, this one comes close:  on the first Saturday in May, Shorewalkers will be hosting The Great Saunter, an all-day walk around the island of Manhattan.  The route spans 32 miles, so there should be plenty of opportunities to appreciate our surrounding coastline.  The organization estimates that people should be able to complete the walk in 12 hours (at a rate of 3 miles per hour with breaks), and there are NO prizes for first, second, or third place.  Yes, that's right:  the whole purpose is simply to go for a walk (okay, a really long walk).  So, if you're looking for a fun way to enjoy the spring, why not consider participating in this mindful, memorable stroll?
