So while sitting around on facebook this morning with a whole slew of random thoughts going through my head about how I should be outside strolling around with Jett getting so exercise a marvelous idea popped in to my head!
I decided it would be really fun to start something new around here where Jett and I, and several of the other mom's with kids in strollers all got together and went for a walk once a week! Then I decided even better yet that anyone was invited. They could invite their friends or spouses, etc. Even if you didn't have kids you could just come to walk your dog or hang out with us all and get in some exercise. So I created an event and explained what I was wanting to do and invited as many of my friends who I knew lived in the area as possible and instructed them to invite anyone they wanted to. So far I have 6 people confirmed to go walking with us next week at one of the trails around a local park here. We havent set an exact day or time yet and are still trying to figure out when is best for the most people. But I am so excited its only been posted for a few hours and I already have some people who said they thought it was a good idea and want to come. There are even some people who I don't know, so they must be friends of someone else that I do know that got invited. Yay!
So my challenge to all you guys out there in blogger land is to do something similar! Use your blog or your facebook or your phone, just whatever, and get to inviting people in your community to go out for a simple walk. You know it will be nice to get out of the house and meet some new people and it will count towards exercise. I am really looking forward to being able to socialize with someone other than Jett. lol. And I know he will be excited to see the other kids. It doesn't have to be weekly. It could be bi-weekly or monthly. But just give it a try! :)
Good luck everyone!
