I know that many of you walk all year round and that some of you have been walking indoors this winter, but it’s time to get back outside. April kicks off the season with our first walk out at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum on April 1. It might be risky to plan an outdoor event for April Fool’s Day, never know what mother nature has in store for us, but I will be leading walks at both 1pm and 6pm that day, rain or shine. (I’m just not going to include snow, ok?)
As always, we’ll bring the demo poles along so you can try them. Come experience for yourself the joy and benefits of walking with poles. If you’re not a member of the Arboretum you can get in free for the day by using the password “nordic walking” with the gate keeper. Be sure to ask for your membership for Mother’s day so you can go out often to walk.
After the first we will be walking on Tuesdays in April, Mondays in May and Wednesdays in June. We decided that alternating the days each month would give everyone a chance to come with us. Locations for the walks are on my calendar here or you can also see them at www.hoigaards.com.
I have also scheduled lots of Community Ed classes throughout the western suburbs. If you would like to learn more about nordic walking and have some more intentional coaching on technique the schedule for these classes is also on the calendar.
I hope to see you out on the trail soon!
