"Why Do You Walk So Fast?"
Many of our Sabbatical Sessions guests ask for time alone with me and my co-founders, Jeff and Christine. I often recommend a walk and talk, and, I guess, I’ve earned a bit of a reputation for being a "zippy Chippy."
I tend to walk fast. Not because I want to end the conversation quickly, but since I no longer run on the beach, I love the idea of exercising and conversing at the same time.
I was feeling a little guilty about the fact that people feel they have to keep up with me until I recently read that how fast you walk after age 60 is a good gauge of longevity. Your walking speed can predict dementia, shorter life spans, and depression. To learn more, check out this study in the most widely read and highly-cited, peer-reviewed neurology journal.
Here’s a video of me talking about where I learned to walk fast: San Francisco.
