Morning all ... I just wanted to drop in and let you know about a team I came across that is looking for a serious walkers.

The Team has been around for a while but dormant when I popped in. I was looking for a team that was serious about walking ... not just fitness walkers, but true walkers who want the challenge that can be only found by signing up for a race, competing in that race, and then completing it.

I tempted myself with an 8K ... fell in love with the fact that I could finish ahead of runners but never breaking out of a walk ... last weekend, I completed the National College Blue Ridge Half Marathon ... (the toughest road race in America) ... and am on a "walkers high!"

And, now am trying to revitalize the group and get walkers who are serious about their health and fitness, and they attain it through a solid walking program. You don't need to run a 5K, 10K or even a marathon ... you can walk it! It just takes putting your minds to the task, taking the time to do the training, and the guts to just walk it.

Yes ... for some it is all about form ... for others it is all about the challenge.

Why not stop in and see try us.
