No way will it be "easy!" We need to get our butts moving this summer.
As I teased yesterday, Ann, Cindy and I sat down yesterday to set up a great way for people of all athletic abilities to get active this summer, a walking group!
The group will meet the first and third Sundays of the month at 6:00 p.m. at a different lake around the Twin Cities. We want to emphasis that it's for walking, and a non-intimidating way for people of all exercise abilities to get moving and enjoy the beautiful summer weather. We also don't want to make this an over commitment thing, so come if you can, don't come if you can't, but know that these days you have people who want to walk around and get active with you!
Here is a tentative schedule:
May 2: Como Lake, St. Paul 1.5 Miles
May 16: Centennial Lakes Park, Edina 1.43 Miles
June 6: Lake of the Isles, Minneapolis 2.5 Miles
June 20: Shops at Arbor Lakes Man Made Lake (I need to get exact name) X2, Maple Grove 2.0 Miles
July 11: Lake Calhoun, Minneapolis 3.1 Miles
July 18: Lake Nokomis, Minneapolis, 3.5 Miles
Aug 1: Como Lake X2, St. Paul, 3.0 Miles
Aug 15: Lake Harriet, Minneapolis 2.8 Miles
Aug 29: Lake Calhoun, Minneapolis 3.1 Miles
We would love to wrap up the summer with all of us (or those who are interested) walking and/or jogging a 5K together over Labor Day weekend and have a cookout that day to celebrate our successes.
If this is something you would like to be a part of, check back at my blog every Thursday before the scheduled walk, to see exactly where we will be meeting at the alke. Out of respect for everyone's time, we will leave promptly at 6:10 p.m. (giving anyone time in case they get lost). Leave a comment if this is something you think you'd want to be a part of, the three of us would love to gauge the interest!
Hope you had a great Monday folks!
