Everett’s Comcast Arena concourse opens for walkers

The mall isn't the only place for people to stretch their legs indoors.
Comcast Arena at Everett is now opening its concourse for walkers on Monday and Wednesday mornings.
Comcast staff members are planning a kickoff event to celebrate at 9 a.m. Monday at the arena, 2000 Hewitt Ave.
Enter through the Comcast Community Ice Rink, off Broadway.
"The health benefits are enormous, and we're thrilled to provide a comfortable and safe atmosphere," said Kim Bedier, general manager of Global Spectrum, the company that runs the arena.
Premier athletic trainer Jordan James plans to lead a quick stretching session.
Other experts will be on hand to offer nutritional advice, injury screenings and shoe recommendations -- all free. There also will be free coffee, water bottles and T-shirts.
The concourse will be open most Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 to 11 a.m. Entrance is free. Five laps equal a mile. There's a flight of stairs to run up and down if walking isn't enough of a calorie burner.
A few other particulars: The concourse won't be open on holidays and once in a while when major events occur. The only animals allowed in are service animals.
