The Monday Mile encourages individuals and communities to use Monday to recommit to their physical activity goals, setting a pattern of healthy behavior for the rest of the week. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that adults get 150 minutes of moderate physical activity each week. By doing the Monday Mile, individuals and communities can take the first steps toward meeting this recommended weekly exercise goal. View maps of indoor and outdoor walking routes on the Johns Hopkins East Baltimore campus! Walking elsewhere? You can even create your own Monday Mile maps.
