Summer Walking Group!

I'm so excited!  Cindy at Healthy Heart Journey and Alexa at My Tale of Two Cities have put together a Twin Cities Walking Group for the summer.  Read about it on Cindy's blog HERE and on Alexa's blog HERE. Ann at Twelve in Twelve also helped plan this group.

I love their schedules and perspective for this group.  The group will meet twice a month on Sunday evenings to walk around various Twin Cities lakes (we do live in the Land of 10,000 Lakes ya know!).  It is a specifically walking group, so it is friendly to people of all fitness levels.  And it is one of those things where there is no expectation that if you come to one you MUST come to all walking group outings.  As a mom of three kids with a husband who works widely varying hours, the reality is I likely won't be able to get to all of them.  But hopefully at least half or more during the course of the summer would be awesome.  Plus I'd get to know IRL some pretty awesome bloggers.  Coolio x 2.

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

The idea is to culminate the summer with a BBQ and perhaps a 5K run/walk for those that are interested over Labor Day weekend.  I think it is a great idea...good job putting it together ladies!  I'm looking forward to it!

If you, dear reader, are a local Twin Cities resident too and you think you might be interested in joining this walking group, contact Cindy, Alexa or Amy regarding your interest!
