There were 30 nordic walkers on the trails by Hoigaard’s tonight. Eleven who were walking with poles for the very first time, and lots of familiar faces. I had spent the middle of the day at Methodist Hospital Farmer’s Healthy Market promoting healthy lifestyle choices for outdoor activities. Seems that lots of people did just that tonight.
It was our biggest group of the season and we were not really prepared for it. It’s a lot of poles to adjust and we want to make everyone feel welcome and part of the group. Once we got out walking it was a beautiful evening and everyone fell into rhythm by the end of the first mile so we were on a roll. Lives connected, new friends made, a new activity explored.
I’m ready for bed!
