Mother Nature brought us another beautiful spring day Wednesday, making for a great day to get out and be active once again.
And the timing couldn't have been any better considering Wednesday was deemed as 'national walking day.'
It's a special day observed by the American Heart Association, encouraging the public to put on a pair of their best sneakers to work and find more opportunities to walk, whether that means parking farther away from your building or even take a walk to grab lunch.
The American Heart Association, along with several different employers and organizations, set up several local walks across town where the public was invited to join in and take a short stroll.
It's an annual event that is always held the first Wednesday in April.
