The good news is that our community is making steady progress on offering venues that help residents to get moving. There's hope for an extension of the Ladiga Trail south into downtown Anniston, which will benefit walkers/runners/cyclists.
Then there are the mountain biking trails on Coldwater, which offers an expanding network of routes on the Forever Wild property plus an economic boost for the region.
Looking for an excuse to increase your fitness and a goal to get you there? We'd suggest competing (running or walking) in Anniston's Woodstock 5K on Aug. 3. Check out the event's Facebook page for details on training runs, which begin in early June.
