Regular Walks Resume

by Connie DeLaVergne on February 7, 2012

Good news walking fans . . . I’m baaaccckkk. That’s right. The 9 to 5 office gig is in transition and I’m working from home again. At least for now. They say the only constant is change and, boy, they sure got that right. Keeps me on my toes, literally. So anyway, I’m trying to […]


Thursday NoShows.

by Connie DeLaVergne on December 17, 2010

Nine days before Christmas is a busy time of year for most people and Pacific Northwest weather can be less than inviting about now. I understand why nobody showed for our Thursday morning walk yesterday. It makes perfect sense to me because trust me when I tell you it was difficult getting my girth out […]


Day After Holiday ~ No Regrets Walk

by Connie DeLaVergne on November 15, 2010

It is so much a part of American culture and so firmly connected to the collective mindset that it’s almost impossible not to indulge or have a wee bit more than you probably should . . . so ease up on yourself, my friends. You know that […]

The rain fell rapidly and in copious quantities as I climbed into bed on the night of September 17. “We’re Northwest girls,” I remembered my friend JaneEllen saying “and not sugar, we won’t melt.” It was coming down really hard, though, and no matter how accustomed I am to all-weather exercise, it can pour too […]


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 […]
