Tara, Thanks so much! I love going on weekend walks and having one more option (an indoor one that is free to all) is great!

Just wanted to let you know about the mall. They open the doors really early like at 7:00 for people to walk (i don't know if that is the real reason but nevertheless it is open) the stores themselves don't open till 10:00. I know because a few years ago I used to walk with a friend of mine at the mall.

We got in late last night and I just crawled into bed, without setting an alarm for this morning. So, I overslept and missed the walk. :( Got your message, Paula, but it was too late to meet you. Sorry I wasn't there!

it's not raining in Elkins right now, so I'm headed to Fayetteville's Mud Creek Trail in about 10 minutes. I'll wait until 7:00 to see if anyone shows up, then I'll head to Wal-Mart for a few groceries. Hope to see someone in a little bit!

Carrie,
Don't be bummed...I am jealous of you spending time playing with and taking care of twins. I just LOVE babies!! I wonder if picking them up and down counts as strength training... emoticon

It looks like the weather is working against us again for tomorrow morning. Rats.

Let the good times roll!

Yucky Yucky rainy weather! I am bummed b/c I haven't been able to meet ya'll at all. I am at my sis's house helping her with the kiddos...she can't lift up her twins right now...she is postpartum after a c-sect, hernia surgery, and tubes being tied. I am helping her out. Last night we went to watch fireworks and while we were waiting for them to start I kept walking around till I hit my 10,000 steps. I sure wish I could meet up with ya'll in the morning but the twins get up early and I have to be here to lift them into the highchairs and change their diapees.... I am enjoying every minute of it though! I keep busy that is for sure! I do miss ya'll! Hope everyone had a gr8 4th of July and enjoy the rest of the weekend. We are watching fireworks tonight here in Farmington, woot!

Amanda and I and her friend Cheryl walked the Lake Fayetteville trail today. Just the paved part, but it still got me my 10,000 steps and took us about 1.5 hrs. I'm up for the Mud Creek Trail tomorrow for something different though.

10 doesn't work for me today, either. Too many family projects going on up here.

And, it's raining in Springdale. Funny that it wasn't about 10 minutes ago...

It's Saturday morning & it's raining in Fayetteville AGAIN! aargh! I looked at the radar and the cell is just over Fayetteville. Guess we just weren't to do Lake Fayetteville! The mall's website says it doesn't open until 10:00, but when we got there yesterday it looked like they actually unlock the doors earlier than that but I couldn't find the hours posted anywhere. 10:00 is just too late for me today, so I'm going to have to sit out. If ya'll want to make arrangements to meet up and do it, knock yourselves out! have fun!!!

Is anyone up for walking indoors somewhere today?
I was thinking of the Jones Center, if it is open. 1/2 mile inside all the way around the building.
Or...maybe the NWA mall?

I was BAD yesterday... popcorn, hamburger, coney meal from sonic, .... emoticon

After looking at the radar, I don't think we should bother trying it. The cell has moved back down & it is thundering at my house (I'm in Elkins). So sleep away!

Okay so I have NO idea where this place is, but I am planning on being there tomorrow - if I can get to sleep on time tonight. I can always take a nap tomorrow and I need to get in my exercise. So, can someone post some good directions for me? I get lost in my own driveway so keep that in mind. I know where Joyce street is, but can someone give landmarks as far as where I'm headed from there? If not, I'll try to find it by searching for a jeep...I hope there aren't too many out there!

Agreed, though, if it's raining, I'll just stay home. Ain't nothin better than staying home, all snuggly in bed watching an old comedy while it's raining...Except maybe sleeping while it's raining =)

Since it is currently 9:15 and is raining outside, I say we MOVE (not cancel) the walk for Friday to the Mud Creek Trail. The trailhead is located on Old Missouri Road, just South of Joyce Blvd in Fayetteville. This entire path is paved so it shouldn't be a problem with being muddy like Lake Fayetteville. Also, if it is raining at 7:00 in the morning, I will not be there as I assume no one else will either.

So...all three are at Lake Fayetteville? I'm thinking...potentially, maybe, possibly I'll do Friday. I do like to sleep in, but I don't work that day so I can take a NAP! Woo! and 7:30 isn't so bad only half an hour before I have to be at work and since I'm starting my second job, I've got to exercise in the morning now so this works out!

Yes..okay...I'll be there Friday...unless something crazy comes up with either of the jobs. it's all about the money you know!

7:30 sounds reasonable for Friday & Saturday... Sunday we'll need to stick to 7:00 for Carrie. COOL! I'm really excited to get this going again... almost wish I'd be here for this weekend, but not giving up the vacation for it! lol

As far as I know, we don't have any plans, so I could maybe do all 3 days. Its SO hard to get up though! lol But I've been trying to get up early every day so its not so hard to get up when I have to work. So...I'm gonna say all 3 days and try to make it to all of them. I think 7:30 would be good. That's not too early, and even if I slept til 7, I could make it. :) So, I vote for 7:30.

it is hot! be careful ~ take plenty of water for you & your not-a-baby girl. When my boys were small, I'd pull them in the wagon - they didn't last too long in the stroller, too confining for them

We meet at the baseball field parking lot (just off 71B, turn by Lewis & Clark). You'll see my Jeep (take a look at my SparkPage for a picture). When the 6 of us in the picture went it took about 1.75 hours, but when Carrie & I did it alone it took 1.25 hours and we went the longest loop there is, so it really just depends on how fast or slow you walk - we try to gear it to the slowest person... with the bigger group, the faster people will walk ahead and stop to wait occasionally; but if it's just the three of us we'll gear it to the slowest person.

I wasn't really thinking of moving it UP, but maybe back so people can sleep longer on their day off. You know me, I wake up before the sun everyday so it really doesn't matter to me; but some people will want to sleep in a little bit.. maybe start at 7:30 or 8:00 for them. I can be there as early as sunrise, but that doesn't work for most...lol

What works best for you, Tam? Your the one that posts after midnight almost every night while I'm catching Zzzzz's

Do you want to start at 7am? 630 AM is a doable time as well its just getting up for that time. I know you and Carrie are early birds but its hard for me to get to bed before midnight. I know I'm in for 1 day not sure about all 3 just yet as I have no idea on plans that the guys might want to do.

I have to remember to stop and think.

ok Girls... I'm gone this weekend, but would like to get some hiking organized for the 4th weekend.

Any available for Friday, the 4th am?

Saturday, the 5th am?

Sunda, the 6th am?

I wouldn't mind going on a hike all three days and we could mix & match who goes each day. So, just let me know!
