A Walk On KC Thursday

by Connie DeLaVergne on September 2, 2010

Early Morning Walks Are Cancelled

Thursday morning walks at KC have shifted to Thursday evening walks and will begin at Skyridge Park on March 24, 2011.

Why you ask?

Because I got a job and am no longer available in the mornings. But that’s no reason you can’t continue to meet at Kelsey Creek park and move your body. You’ll just have to do it without me.

I will miss these walks.


7:45 AM · Kelsey Creek Farm · Rain or Shine

Start your Thursday morning off on the right foot with a centrally located Group WalkRain or shine, we will meet in the KC parking lot on days that school is in session and walk 45 – 90 minutes en masse.

Make that commitment to your health and join me every Thursday morning
at 7:45
for a fitness walk. It’s free, it’s proactive and it’s motivating to walk
with other people.

Kelsey Creek Farm makes for a good starting point, too, because there are a number of walks that originate from there–short, long, steep, wooded and every combination thereof. It could be weeks before we’d have to repeat a walk, although we’ll probably discover a favorite and of course, there’s always the KC stairs . . .

166 KC Steps

Yep! 166 KC Steps. I like to include them on my walks because they get my heart pounding, my lungs working and my thighs burning.

On a two-and-a-half mile stroll the other day I walked up those steps three times. I knew it was going to be a short walk and I wanted to make it count. I am proud to report that’s a total of 498 steps, and a far cry from where I started when I’d only walk down those darn steps.

I’m not saying we have to go up those steps multiple times each walk, but we could if we wanted to and after I show you my favorite routes, we’ll let consensus be our guide.

The point is to find enjoyable ways to be active in beautiful places with people who inspire you. Let’s walk together and keep each other motivated!

Please share this post with anyone and everyone you can think of who might be interested in a weekly walking group ~ you know, someone who’s interested in getting or staying healthy ~ a proactive person committed to taking care of herself and her body and is willing, even eager, to do the required work. Yeah that person! You know anyone like that? Do us both a favor and send her my way.  Thanks!

Walk on my friends.

Walk on!

We’re off to a GREAT START with 5 friends who showed up for our WEEKLY walk this morning. Woohoo! We started off slow with a short 2.05 mile walk but we DID do the 166 KC Steps. Congratulations to all of you who took time out of your day to take care of your health. That’s awesome!

Walk On!

Steve and I arrived a little late. So sorry we missed you and your husband. Hope you went for a walk without us and enjoyed the day.
