I was fortunate enough to have a table set up at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights Wednesday, December 10th. It also happened to be Human Rights Day so it all felt like perfect timing 🙂
My table was set up in partnership with Urban Poling Inc, to promote the “Spirit Pole” design I did on their Nordic Walking Poles. The overall response was great! If it weren’t for Diana Oliver (Managing Director of Urban Poling) I wouldn’t have been there! I feel very humbled and thankful for everyone who was a part of making that night possible, and also to those friends and family who came to support me. 🙂
Use the standard rhythm and technique, but swing both arms forward at the same time planting the boot tips slightly behind the handles. Then, keeping your arms straight, press down on the base of the handles, walk between your poles and feel your arms extend past your thighs and behind your body.
