Walking Plan 2014

Saturday, January 04, 2014

Happy New Year - 2014! Our community has a walk in a little over 6 weeks, so I put out an email to some friends asking if anyone would like to form a team. I then also asked who would like to start walking beginning Monday - naming a location and a time - Monday through Friday daily whoever can attend. I hope to have some takers! I have a plan, put out a request for supporters and have an end goal! This might be a great walking start for the new year!
I've had a walking buddy in the past but she recently moved. =(
For those of you that do, be grateful!
For those of you that don't, consider asking someone, joining a current group or making one!
Last year I joined a gym for the months of January & February to get me over the hump of the cold outside. However I realize if I have some takers on the walking plan, I won't need to join the gym and will be saving some money! =)

    Thank you Ladies for your support & encouragement!!

    Pixie - I love the idea of walking and spending time with others. People are busy and walking may not be their priority. If I put it out there every so often, they know I walk. When the timing is right for them, they know they can reach out to me and join me.

    Roxy - The timing just happened to work out that way. Equally important was the location, although I didn't realize it at the time. I chose a track that was centrally located and that worked in my favor. =)

    Tina - Sometimes we need the support of others - a buddy system or a network of helpers/buddies. Just keep in mind YOUR why and YOUR goals in case there comes a time when your buddy's priorities change and you may have to go it alone...have your own motivation.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and encouragement!

    Good luck with your community walk! I have tried to get people together in my neighborhood for daily walks but it just never seems to pan out.
