(Local) Raleigh Greenway Walk

Let's try meeting at the gravel parking lot next to the McDonalds at 4121 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC, 27612 and walk the Greenway to Shelley Lake (2.4 miles), go around the lake (2 miles) and then walk back for a total walk of 6.8 miles. Since the greenway is paved, I believe we will have an easier time walking in the dark. Headlamps or flashlights will be necessary, since it will definitely be totally dark before we get back to our cars. We will most likely walk at a pace of about 3.5 to 4.0 miles per hour. Of course, those who wish to run ahead are welcome to do so.

    Thanks to all for a super fast walk! The wider, flatter surface was more conducive to socializing while we got our heart rates elevated. Might try to do this or something similar next week if at least 4 people are interested. Thanks again!

    my thighs were hurting as I strained them during yesterdays workout, otherwise I could have tried to keep up with you guys. :(
    Thanks for organizing this Heidi.

    Note to all of you: Please do not forget to bring a source of light--it will be dark before we finish this walk under the trees. Also, if you arrive late, head on the greenway in the direction of Glenwood Avenue (US70). The greenway passes underneath it when going in the direction of Shelley Lake. See you soon!

    Note: This is a trial run to see whether walking in the dark will be a good idea or not. This is the last week before daylight savings time ends.
