One morning in 2011, Libby DeLana stepped outside her New England home for a walk. She did the same thing the next day, and the next. It became a daily habit that has culminated in her walking over 25.000 miles—the equivalent of the earth's circumference.
In Do Walk (Chronicle Books), Libby shares the transformative nature of this simple yet powerful practice. She reveals how walking each day provides the time and space to reconnect with the world around us; process thoughts; improve our physical well-being; and unlock creativity. It is the ultimate navigational tool that allows us to see who we are—beyond titles and labels—and where we want to go.
With stunning photography, this inspiring and reflective guide is an inspiration to step outside, and see where the path takes us.
An illuminating book that powerfully conveys a simple truth: that putting one foot in front of the other is a transformative act. DeLana writes with insight, heart, and wit about love, loss, work, creativity, and the mysteries of being human. Do Walk is a moving and wise book about one woman's path toward enlightenment, that also tells a story about us all. — Cheryl Strayed, international bestselling author
Do Walk is a refreshing reminder that daily exercise isn't so much about sweat and exertion as it is about commitment and exploration, of nature and self. DeLana's evocative prose allows us to walk right next to her, passing through the seasons of life. This book helped me examine parts of my life, but more than anything, it made me want to lace up and head outside. — Charlie Engel, endurance runner and author
Who knew that a daily walk could be a transformative experience? Libby DeLana shares inspiring stories and her best practices in this special little book. So much of the wisdom in Do Walk stayed with me long after finishing it and I can officially say I am now a member of the #ThisMorningWalk club — Cheryl Richardson, NYT bestselling author of Take Time for Your Life
