Hi all,
I just wanted to let everyone know that Marilyn's wonderful run/walk group has expanded! Every one of their meetups (3x weekly) now has three groups - two run/walk groups at different levels and a walking-only group. So no matter your fitness level, there's a spot for you. I've been to several of these meetups and everyone in the group is so friendly and welcoming - I really encourage anyone who needs a little extra encouragement to get some exercise (or anyone who just wants a little company on the dusty trail) to show up and meet these great folks.

Hi Marsha,

Thanks so much for all the wonderful things you said about our run/walk group! I'm really glad you could make it. Anyone is welcome to join us or if you are intested in co-organizing with me to start you own walking or running group, let me know.

I haven't been on this board for quite awhile, but really want to start using it again!

Marilyn

Hi Durhamites,
I wanted to report back on the meetup group, since I went on Saturday and did a run/walk with them. What a cool bunch of people! Everyone was very supportive of each other, and most really were absolute beginners at this run/walk thing. Marilyn, the leader, also mentioned that some members were interested in getting together for walking-only. If you're looking for a reason to get out of bed and exercise on the weekends, you couldn't do any better. Here's the link:

Hey all,
You might be interested in a new fitness meetup group that's having their first event this weekend. The group is called "Absolute Beginner Run/Walkers" and it's for anyone who's interested in incorporating some running intervals into their walks. You may even want to work up to run/walking a 5K. The organizer, Marilyn, is a SparkPeople member (though not very active now, I don't think), and she's a cool lady whom I've walked with before. Here's the link:
