Nordic Walking Season is CrankingBy Rocky Thompson on August 23rd, 2006
According to SNEWS, Nordic Walking has found a foothold in the US and the sport is continuing to grow. For people younger than 60, Nordic Walking is just walking with ski poles. Excel and Leki make special lightweight rubber-tipped poles for strutting the sidewalks which are supposed to offer Nordic Walkers an upper body workout. Ski shops in the Midwest are hoping it catches on so they actually have something to sell if itâ€™s another bad year for snow.
