Miranda can race walk a mile in 6:30 and holds 7:20/mile for a half marathon. Her cadence is very quicks as she can walk over 227 steps/minute using a very technnical and near flawless technique.

Racewalking can have much the same cardiovascular benefits of running but with less impact on joints. In racewalking, there are fewer injuries and you can get your heart rate as high as you can running. Also, it as been in the Olympics for over 100 years. Race Walking does not require expensive equipment and nearly anyone can participate, from beginning exercisers to Olympic caliber athletes. Racewalking will give you a much better workout than 'regular' walking and it is much easier on your body than jogging or running.
