Walk this Way 2011 – First Walk: Today!

I’ve been checking community calendars like a mad woman now that the weather is shaping up, the snow is melting, and the sun is shining.  Emma and I are desperate to get outside and move our feet and what better way to do that than with a good gal pal, another baby in a stroller and adorable and funny Jamesy!  They have their own blog you should check out too, it is chock full of crafty-crafts, cute little boys and even her home beer brewing husband, such an awesome hobby, if I do say so myself.

Here is a picture of the kiddies ready to walk:

The first walk of the “Walk the Way 2011 Event” got underway today at noon.  A bunch of ladies (and maybe a few men, although I did not see many) gathered at the Fargo Civic to hear a few words from Mayor, Dennis Walaker.  The walking route was mapped out and there were two routes to choose from, indoors or outdoors.  James decided we would walk outside today and we thank him because it was gorgeous!  Alissa and I were the only people with strollers that walked outside, so by the time we got down the elevator, the group was no where to be found… We decided to just start walking and we’d catch up with them as we could and then just never really saw them for the rest of the walk.  Oh well, we had a great time walking by ourselves and couldn’t believe when we decided to turn around and head back toward the Civic Center to end our walk, there was the group – good timing!

Chili and Sweet buns from Texas Roadhouse (and bags of baby carrots) were served ‘to go’ at the end of the walk and names were drawn for prizes.  We had such a great time and it only took about an hour of our day.  I am so excited and motivated to go to the next walk, and hope we can get some more folks to join us.  What’s better than a quick walk with friends, free food and prizes?!
