What a joke can you see yourself going into 100 degree plus temperature to go walking then bringing your smelly ass back to the office.How much is this going to costs us? I bet you will only go one or two times to start the program and we never see you again.What a waste.

With obesity being a problem everywhere, walking is one of the best exercises there is. It costs more to see a doctor than it does to walk. Walking is free. Finding solutions is better than not doing anything. Congratulations on helping us improve the quality of our lives in EP.

That is not really true about cost of doctors here in ElPaso. For most if your illegal or on welfare with lots of babies it doesn't cost nothing to go to the Doctor. Whats easier laying in your free housing and making more babies inside where is cool or walking. Walking is only for going to the place that gives out free bees welfare and lones star cards. Plus the trails a most likely marked in English and the people around ElPaso don't speak read or write in that.

Take it as you want to. But I prefer to see it as an enjoyable sight seeing tour while getting healthy, in shape and an opportunity to learn English at the same time.
