I have a bad heart condition, so walking is about the only exercise I can do.

I love to walk!! I have a job where I'm always on my feet but walking when I'm off is a good stress reliever!!

I walk in nature almost every day with my dog. It's very enjoyable.

Wonderful form of exercise, particularly for us older folks.

I walk super fast at all times. In my house, at work, when shopping, at airports, and when traveling to new cities. I actually park my car far from store entrances and walk quickly across parking lots, often passing cars that drove in when I did but are still looking for a spot! It energizes me!

Wonky feet make walking painful despite 5 foot surgeries. I still walk becaused I must.

With the wildfires, it's not a safe activity.

I thought it tasted just like meat. I have gastrointestinal issues, so this is a great alternative.

Our vegetarian daughter ate some of these once upon a time -- but us, never.

When I lived in the city, I'd take the bus if I didn't have a car or it was unavailable. I'd do the same in this small town if there were any, but the local gov't doesn't want to put money into it. We need it badly. If you don't have a car or a ride, you are screwed! Espacially, when very hot/cold!

I live in NYC, which has an extensive public transportation system. I do not need a car and using public transportation is better for the environment.

I live in the county and no buses available. I drive a car now, but in 3 months will turn 80 and want to stop driving. I will sell my car and pay people to take me to appts and vets etc. I have groceries and pet supplies delivered.

There are no buses in the country. If I lived in a big city, maybe I would.

Living in the country it's not an option. Sometimes ride the L in Chicago during family visits and we were on and off the subway in NYC last fall -- the only way to get around!
