Hi, Just signed up to Wacky Walkers love the name. I love walking but due to the weight problem it is difficult. I have just started with Sparks and have set a goal to walk every day on my lunch hour at working instead of being tempted into eating something I do not need. I use to Live in Toronto, for 15 years and then moved to Nova Scotia for another 15 years and I now live in England. Good luck in KW Walking Classic.
Thanks for the reply ... the event is for anyone who loves walking from anywhere ... we would love to have some American walkers! I will try to find the Coffee Chat and post there ... thanks so much again!

hi--welcome. I am not in canada so I'm guessing this is an event for canadians? Yes? We do have members on this board who are from canada. I suggest you post this on the coffee chat thread. It is the first thread under general discussions--a sticky actually.

I just wanted to introduce myself ... my name is Susan and I am from Kitchener / Waterloo Ontario here in Canada. I am also the Race Chair for the Minds in Motion - K W Walking Classic that will be taking place here in Waterloo on Sunday September 27th.
We want to get the word out about this new race for Walkers only ... it is our second annual race and last year was a huge success. If you are someone (or you know someone) who walks and they want to be in a competitive chip timed race that focuses on walkers from all levels of ability please let them know about our event! From race walkers and power walkers to recreational walkers that want to take their walking to the next level we want to let them feel the excitement of competition. Help me get the word out there. We want everyone to take walking seriously and give everyone a way to feel better physically and mentally. Here is what you get: 5 K or 10 K registration A chance to make a difference and elevate walking as a serious athletic endeavor A high quality Saucony technical long sleeved shirt ($55 value) A beautiful medal presented at the finish line A feeling of accomplishment that can not be matched!!
