We wrote about the Walk From Obesity- Walk on the Capitol a few weeks back and now we're writing again directly from the Capitol! We are on the National Mall in Washington DC with a fabulous 1000+ person crowd and the hardworking folks at the Obesity Action Coalition about to embark on a historic walk to bring attention to the ominously expanding obesity epidemic in the US. The sun is shining on the energetic crowd that is now stretching in preparation for the event. We've joined several conversations in which participants are gaily reminding each other of the commitment to a healthy lifestyles now and for generations of Americans to come.
Come join us for those of you in DC - bring your Blackberrys if you must! Festivities are about to start with ceremonial speeches by the obesity action coalition and special guest, Caitlin VanZandt ( of Sopranos fame), who has fought obesity in her lifetime.
