I agree. I haven't walked the past two saturdays because of the heat. It's shaping up to be another scorcher of a summer.

Thanks for the info. You know, I don't blame them for not having events planned in the near future. These temperatures are awful! Maybe we can meet up in the fall. Thanks.

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. I've been on vacation and since I don't have mobile internet access I am out of pocket til I get back home.

The Brazos Valley walking club does not yet have a website. They don't have any events scheduled right now other than their Year Round Events (YRE) which can be walked at any time.

For information contact:
Contact: Pat or Henry Salzmann
Phone: (979) 774-9038
Email: bvtrailblazers@gmail.com

Maybe they would like to come out and walk a YRE with you and show you the program.

Best wishes

The Brazos Valley Trailblazers are holding an event on April 21st at Madisonville. The walk will be along an easy trail through the woods and along Lake Madison. The 10Km then continues to the Historic Downtown area and back to the lake. There are several restaurants around the Courthouse Square and some Unique Antique Shops.
The Trailblazers will be serving Hot dogs and all the trimmings for our walkers. Donations appreciated.

That's one of the fun things about Volkswalking is that you do it at your own pace and when you can. And 5K sound worse than it is. It is 3.2 miles and takes about an hour and a half for me- I am slow.
If you wanted to walk the College Station one, you can go to the Bush Library, ask at the desk for the Walk Box. Inside the box is a card you sign and a map. You can walk a little each day until you have completed the walk, then you go back to the library and mark the card that you completed the walk.
There is no fee to do the walk unless you want to get credit for it with the AVA or get a patch or pin.

I will be in San Antonio this Friday so I will miss my own meeting but I hope you will come to the meeting in October. We'll have a whole program on the AVA and what it's all about and what walks and programs are coming up next year.

So what are you waiting for?
What do you have to lose. Your insecurities they try to alter you.
But you know you're made for more- so don't be afraid to move.
Your faith is all it takes and you can walk on the water to.

Thank you!

I agree - the distance is long for me now. Do you do it all at once, or do you do one mile today, half tomorrow, 3/4 the next day and so on, and add them together?

That sounds awesome GrammyPat. I would actually love to participate in something like this. However, I'm afraid that even a 5k is a little out of my reach atm. I walked my dog 2 miles last week and it kicked my butt. I know I could not have made it another mile. Are ya'll slowly building up to 5k or already there?

Have you heard of Volkswalking? If not you can find info at www.ava.org
There is also a volkswalk group here on Spark People.
My husband and I have been doing Volkswalking for about 5 years and we really wished there was a local group here. So we decided to start one up. We just got our charter and have set up 2 walks in this area. One in Bryan and one in Caldwell. There isa already one in College Station.
Basically they are 5k or 10k walks and when you complete a walk you can receive credit from the AVA. When you have enough credits you can get a patch or pin. It's a fun way to exercise, you can walk with family or by yourself and there are walks all over the state and the US.
If you would like to learn more, our first meeting is this Friday, Sept 3 at 6:30PM at St Joseph's Annex, Corner of 29th and Broadmoor.
There are a lot of things we can do as a club right here so I hope you will think about joining us
