Hiking for Slow People

Do you love to hike, but hate feeling like you're the last one struggling to keep up in a group of seemingly ridiculously fast-paced hikers? Me too. I'm going to blame it on the fact that I "recently" moved here and am still adjusting to the elevation...although, in reality, that's just a bald-faced lie at this point, given I've been here 6 months. Let's face it, I'm just out of shape. Whatever. I still like hiking, but just need to catch my breath a lot, okay?

If this sounds like you, let's go hiking together! I have a dog that I'll definitely be bringing along, and if you have a four-legged furry friend you should bring them along too (this trail is green tag OK)!

I am going to try to make this a recurring meetup event for every weekend -- mostly on Saturdays (I might switch it to Sunday some weeks, or make it a bit later, so I can hit up the Boulder Farmer's Market during the summer). And after the hike, let's all go out for lunch and beer! Or, if you can't make the hike, simply come join us for food/drinks. :)

This week I thought we could try hiking the 3rd Flatirons trail out of Chautauqua on Saturday at 10:30am (I think it's a bit of a shorter hike, like an hour or so). WARNING: Parking can be a b*tch. It might be a good idea to meet at the Boulder Public Library (or somewhere else, I'm open to suggestions) at 10:15am instead and carpool over to Chautauqua. Anyone want to do this?

Feel free to call my cell at [masked] if you get lost, or would just like to join the group for lunch afterwards so I can let you know where we are.

    I'd like to do this at some point but I'm in a wheelchair and as far as I know only half of the Enchanted Mesa Trail and the Bluebell Shelter Trail are accessible. If you ever do either of those I'll be there. Or I could just come for lunch either way.

    FYI -- I've been feeling kind of under the weather all day today. I'm going to go to bed early tonight and hope I just need some sleep, but there's a chance I may not come tomorrow morning if I wake up feeling crappy. :/ I'll post something here either way. Even if I can't make it though it doesn't mean the rest of you guys can't still meet up and hike! :)

      Boulder Public Library by the farmer's market is the one I had thought of, but wherever would work. :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
