komo news HealthWatch : Seattle Ranks No. 3 On List Of Top Walking Cities: "SEATTLE - Head outside these days and you're bound to find at least one person out for a good walk. So many people in Seattle walk for exercise, that we earned a top spot on the American Podiatric Medical Association's list of top walking cities.

'This is the best walking city I think on the face of this Earth,' said walker Karen Meyers. 'Why? Because we've got so many places to walk. Look at Green Lake, it's a walker's paradise.'
It is -- whether you've got two or four legs; even webbed feet. The object is to just keep moving.

Seattle strides in at number three, on this year's list of top 10 best walking cities. We finished just behind Arlington, Va., and San Francisco. "
