FUN Friday WOIB Walks

by Connie DeLaVergne on October 12, 2012

The best thing about Friday morning WOIB Walks is they take place AS IS. I’m a walking testimonial… Crawl out of bed, throw on some exercise clothes, head out the door. No need to shower or spruce up to get a little self-care out of the way. Just Get in the flow of exercising regularly. […]


Bellevue’s Lake to Lake Walk 2012

by Connie DeLaVergne on September 16, 2012

It’s A Tradition For three years in a row I’ve participated in the City of Bellevue’s annual Lake to Lake Walk (L2L). One year it fell on my birthday and a bunch of my friends walked with me. That was fun. Last year I was a full time employee and I had to squeeze it […]


Botanical Bridge Walk

by Connie DeLaVergne on May 8, 2012

Though I had heard rumblings about it and had gone searching the month prior, stumbling upon the nearly completed suspension bridge in the Bellevue Botanical Garden last Friday during our Group Walk was a delightful surprise for all of us. Spanning 150 feet across a ravine in the Botanical Garden’s most unspoiled natural space, the […]


Don’t Feel As Old As You Look

by Connie DeLaVergne on April 15, 2012

That’s not to say that you don’t look good but it’s time to face the facts folks, each of us gets older every year. Plus, once you’re past the child-bearing years mother nature is not your friend. Does that sound harsh? Sorry, it’s a harsh world and sometimes you have to be cruel to be […]


walking in the rain doesn’t have to *bite*

by Connie DeLaVergne on April 4, 2012

A constant filter of Pacific Northwest gray can cast a pall over any outing, especially when it’s raining, again. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but the weather this spring has been rather dreary, which makes getting up early to walk outside a bit troublesome. It’s especially difficult in spring when you’re eager for light, […]

Rain And Snow So Suck It Up!

by Connie DeLaVergne on March 18, 2012

It feels like winter will never leave but if you want to walk in the PNW, you got to suck it up. TUESDAY: It’s our first morning walk in a year and I’m excited to resume them because I’ve missed my Tuesday morning walks with Sue. She calls before coming over and initially I’m afraid […]

Walk On In Bellevue Back On Track

by Connie DeLaVergne on March 9, 2012

Great Group Walk With Walk-On Walkers! Thank you to everyone who came to the Group Walk today. It was a nice cluster of women who showed up and so motivating to start the day with a good walk, fresh air and nice friends. Walking with even numbers and seeing how people pair up is very […]


Walk On! Fridays 8:30 AM

by Connie DeLaVergne on March 2, 2012

Friday morning is the best day to plan a regularly scheduled Group Walk, according to my readers and my availability, of course. We chose Kelsey Creek Farm as a meeting spot because it’s a gem-of-a-park with lots of surrounding options for walking. Plus it’s centrally located and a couple of us will be dropping children […]
