Jenn,
I am up for a 5k and would love to do the Fire Hydrant 5. I would be a walker/jogger. I am thinking that I would like to do the Bolder Boulder too. It would be fun to do it with someone else. I am NOT a runner but I walk pretty fast! Have you done a 5k before?

Hi there fellow FT Collins-ers! I'm wondering if any of you would be interested in meeting up for one of the local 5k events to walk and or jog? Perhaps one in early May like the Firehydrant 5K? Hope you are staying warm! Best, Jenn

TeDi and I met for a walk on March 28. It lasted an hour and I believe she told me her pedometer indicated it was 3.68 mile walk.

That nature trail is beautiful, it was muddy in some spots and snowy in others due to our blizzard.

Does anyone want to meet for a walk on Saturday, April 4 at 9:00 a.m.?

Here is the link to the City of Fort Collins Trails.

I suggested to TeDi that if we do this again, we pick the Poudre Trail next time.

I always start at the Lyons Park entrance, but I think we should flip and start at the Environmental Learning Center entrance this time.

If anyone would like to go for a walk on Saturday, and become a part of the Weekend Walkers, please post here.

Also, please post if a different time or Sunday would be better. There won't be that many people who participate, so we should certainly be able to come up with a time and day that works for all.

Oh, ok, I know where that is now. I haven't walked out there before. I'll be driving a green SUV. I am looking forward to it. I'll see you at 9:00.

I'll be there.

I will be driving a blue-grey SUV.

The trail head is between the Neenan Company and Summitview Road. It is on the north side of Prospect.

Look for the some sculptures that are by the parking lots. I think the one that is on the north side of Propsect is a leafy looking sculpture.

I'll see you at 9:00.

I would think the trail would be cleared. I am up for it if you are. It will probably just be me and one dog. I think the rest of my family is going cross country skiing at City Park.

I am not exactly sure of the trail head you are talking about. Where do you park?

Dogs and kids are fine with me.

Is it still doable for you considering the snow we got on Thursday or do you want to postpone it until April 4th?

This is a great idea. Thanks for suggesting it. I'd love to go and I think this Sat is a good one for me if the weather is good. How do you feel about dogs and kids coming along?

Well, there wasn't anyone for March 21, so how about March 28 at 9:00 at the same spot.

Please reply if you can be there.

This might be a fun idea as the weather becomes more spring-like. The weekly team letter wasn't send out until Sunday. Please try posting another suggestion for several weeks ahead, at least until members start looking at the team page during the week. I haven't been doing this.

For myself, until I get into better form, I'll need a fairly short and easy route.

It doesn't look like much is happening on our team board right now.

Does anyone want to meet for a walk on Saturday, March 21?

I am suggesting 9:00 a.m. at the nature trail head that is on the north side of Prospect between I-25 and the Neenan Company.

I don't know the name of that particular trail, but as I recall it is a circular path that goes by a lake.
