Maryland has a pretty cool state sport: jousting. But did you know that we have a state exercise, too? Don’t get too excited, though–it’s the least exciting form of exercise possible.
Walking. Yep, walking. As State Symbols USA notes, walking is the “most basic and common mode of transportation.” Which is… great, I guess, but it’s also the least exercise-y exercise possible. It’s such a normal part of living life that I’m not even sure it qualifies as exercise, any more than “getting out of bed” does. Couldn’t they have at least gone with “speed walking” or “mall walking” or, I don’t know, “walking up stairs”?
