Let me challenge you...

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!


  1. What a great idea!!!

    I wish I could start something like that, my biggest excuse would be my job....I work 40 hours a week, but my shifts and days worked change consistency.

    I will walk with you in spirit!!!

  2. You can always make it on a different day each week! Or like do it once a month or something so its not too stressful on everyone's schedules ya know?

  3. This is a great idea to get out and spread the love of exercising. Bravo to you to help others make the move to a healthier life. If I understood the people around me I could try to do the same thing. Not much English spoken where I live right now. LOL

  4. lol yeah that might make things a bit difficult!

    i've got like 9 people attending now and 3 maybe's! woot!

  5. thats really awesome! I have thought about doing that too, but I dont know too many ppl out here haha. Hope you guys can keep getting more ppl!!!! So great!

  6. I don't know that many either. Thats the whole point. I invited just a few people and they all invited people, etc... its gonna be a great way to make new friends! :)
