As regular readers of my ramblings know, I have several walking buddies. My walk-week looks something like this:
Monday - Steph
Tuesday - Laurie
Wednesday - myself or anyone who's available
Thursday - Sally & Betsey at the mall
Friday - Climb all the stairs at work then linedance at 7 PM
Saturday - Sally
Sunday - Sally or Steph
Where'd Kathy go? I miss her, but she's now working full time. We haven't been able to catch up with each other lately.
What about Anngie? She's still on my mind. Got to check her schedule and see what works for both of us. Anngie - if you're reading this. What about Wednesdays??
Sally is the person (along with my mother) who got me interested in walking. She also does water aerobics, step aerobics, and lifts. Go Sally!
Laurie and I reconnected after years of going our separate ways. She's into tapdancing, spinning, and kickboxing.
Steph and I used to work together and she formerly did a variety of workouts - walking, water walking, and more - but her work has really taken over her life. She makes our Monday evening walks a priority, often leaving piles of work on her desk. (She KNOWS what really matters!)
Betsey is a very physically active gal who can 'break' a 15 hand show horse. So, our mall-walking is a breeze for her. Plus, she walks her pack of beagles on the weekends.
So, what's in this for YOU. Call up your old friends. Talk to other walkers at the park. Make some walking connections. I look forward to visiting with everyone one of my walking buddies - who are not just my buddies because they walk with me. But, our hour of walking each week allows us to remain current with each other's lives and makes an hour that I look forward to.
Remember my 100% GUARANTEE. Should you decide to stop walking and resume your old habits, I personally guarantee that you'll get back 100% of your former life - your pain, your lifestyle, your attitude.
