Whoa...! WTG! I threw the towel in and figured today will be my first day back on my treadmill since I can't get outside for a walk as I have for the past couple of days. Just won't push myself re: speed / incline as much as in the past.

There is also an entrance to the Rail Trail sort of near the 4 corners in Vestal. Yes..it's two miles one way. I believe the plan is to extend this one of these days...and it does get crowded if it's a nice day....bikes, roller bladers, etc.

I can do it!!

How far does it extend? Wondering about biking....wish they would connect the Northgate/Otsiningo/Cherie Lindsay and Rail to Trail...that would be AWESOME!

the rail trail is fun. I just find that I run into too many people that I know so I end up either stopping to chat or walking slowly and chatting with friends. I walk faster when I do streets early in the a.m. when now one else is awake.

Don..I hope your surgery goes well! I might be able to do either date as of today. Is a good central place Otsinango? Or the Vestal rail trail? I'm up for a walk since I walk most Saturday afternoons anyway.

I can do it!!

Hi..I'd love to join if I can (maybe I can even get my hubby to come with us .... and of course I will bring my dogs..they love walks). Saturday afternoons are usually good, but not the 21st this month. State Park, Otsinango, or even the rail trail are nice to me.

I can do it!!

I personally would love it to be somewhere we could walk now that the weather is breaking. But I think we need to just pick and see. I am busy Saturdays til 3 p.m. My dad bowls in a blind bowling league. Next Saturday is out busy with hubby but lets just pick and go from there.

Last I recall we kicked the idea around and I believe honed day / time down to Sat. afternoon...

How about ideas @ where? I tossed out the idea of Denny's, Upper Front St. as I know other organizations meet there, but I am open to ideas, preferences, etc.

Hello Losers! I'm back. I have been terribly bad since I moved in November...I was also working a 2nd job for awhile. Anyway I have missed you all, and I am starting out all over again.

Are there any plans for a Bing Area Losers get together in the works?

Great thought! In fact I'd been thinking the same thing..."we oughta post all the upcoming walks/runs/biking events in our area so we can prepare for them, join in, wear our SPARKPEOPLE T-shirts, etc."

Unfortunately, I don't know the answer just yet, but if anyone does let's start posting so we can get out and show our SPARK! :-)

hey all!!!
i have question. does anyone know of any local walks coming up. I hae never done one and always wanted to. dont really know how to get involved in one. I have always wanted to do the breast cancer three day thing that you see and read about, but my husband would freak. He is the only one that works in our house. i stay home with the kids. not quite sure how i wold manage it. But am seriously interested in doing a one day that is local.

Well I whimped out today. Weather channel said -11 wind chill. I just couldn't make myself do it. I tried I got dress. My walking partner called and said lets not. I was out of my walking layers and on the stepper in seconds. It didn't take much arm twisting to get me to stay indoors. But I still need to walk the dogs. I don't think they are going to like the weather at all.

I will hit the gym later. I have dance aerobics tonight. Its a fast way to burn some calories.
