First Parapatetic Walk H3
On our first parapatetic walk, we began by discussing the merits of walking and it's legitimacy as a sport. We pondered the idea that it used to be an extremely popular sport, but as many other sports have been introduced into popular culture it's merits have decreased. I believe this is due to the corporations such as ESPN that have put focus on newer sports such as football and basketball that are more interesting to watch and create large amounts of revenue. However, while walking may not be as popular as it once was, I believe that there is still legitimacy in it as a sport, even if it is not interesting to most people.
