Meet Sarah Greenan – Smart Commuter of the Month
January 15 2018
Occupation: On the marketing team at Pax World, a sustainable investing firm
Why do you commute smart? I really enjoy the 15 minute walk – rain, sun,or snow. It’s great exercise and “me” time to prepare for the day and decompress at the end. I like making a small contribution to sustainable living and improving the environment.
Did you have barriers to overcome? It was second nature because I used to walk to work when I lived in Boston. When I moved to Portsmouth I wanted to continue that. Having the right gear makes all the difference – comfortable warm clothes, good boots, and those spiky things when it’s icy.
Why do you participate in the Commuter Challenges? It’s fun to compete and get prizes. I like to connect with like minded commuters.
What advice would you give others? Try it once a week or once a month. You might be surprised how much you enjoy being outside. It’s also a great time to listen to podcasts or call friends. It’s time you’re able to give back to yourself.
Any last words? Being part of CommuteSMART is really fun! I love not having to use my car.
