The International Nordic Walking Association is celebrating their 1oth year on 10/10/10 and invites everyone to Nordic Walk somewhere on World Nordic Walking day. Walks are being held all over the world including here in Minnesota. At this time, Great Lakes Nordic Walkers have 3 walks scheduled.
9 am I will be walking at Lake Calhoun. Join me at Thomas Beach and we’ll walk the lake, 5K. Extra poles will be available if you need a pair or want to bring a friend! Perhaps we’ll find a cup of coffee when we’re done!
I hope you’ll join me! But if that doesn’t work for you please join Rhea Kontos at 1 pm. Meet in the outer lot of Valley Natural Foods (13750 Co. Rd. 11, Burnsville). It’s a 1 hour on the nice and wide sidewalk of McAndrews Rd. First 15 to arrive to walk will receive a coupon for a free smoothie. Discount cards available too. Extra poles available so bring a friend.
The third option is to hook up with Nanette Denk at 12:30 in Prior Lake at the Shepherd of the Lake paved walking path, 3575 North Berens Road N.W. Choose your distance and walk 1, 2 or 3 miles. Meet just outside the NE doors of Shepherd/McKenna. Please bring your poles and a friend.
if none of this works you could always just step outside with your poles, go for a walk and celebrate the joys and heath of nordic Walking.
