Day 22 Sharing the walking news
I thought I would share our walking group news with you all today. If you happen to be anywhere near Kitchener Waterloo this week we would love to have you join us!
It's always a good idea to set yourself goals
We are letting everyone know that we will be having a group from Walk On Strong at the Resolution Walk (sometimes called the Resolution Run). This year there is a very nice blue and black jacket for your registration fee.(see above) I believe that the fee is $50. until December 1st. You can go to the Running Room in Waterloo and try on the jacket to be sure that you get the correct fit. We do the 5 K and it starts at 12 noon.
If you would like to sign up online ... here is the link:
Resolution 5K Walk January 1st
We would also like to invite you to join us at the Chilly Half Marathon if you are feeling like the challenge of a 21 K and a great reason to train over the winter. It is held on the first Sunday in March. They are also giving a jacket to participants in the Chilly 21 K this year. The registration is $75. until October 30th. We will be looking into booking rooms downtown so that we will be close to the start line. If you would like to register for the Half Marathon Walk just go to this link ...

Walk ON Strong - Thursday Training Sessions
Dave and I do plan to start training sessions on Thursday evenings start soon and we will also send out some training schedules to help you train for these races and others on your goal list. Stay tuned it won't be too much longer.
We are also planning a 3 hour Intro to Power Walking session again very soon. Please let us know if you are interested in this session ... it will give you a good foundation to work with to improve your speed, your strength and prepare for events.
