Did you used to enjoy physical activity but avoid doing it now because you are so out of shape?

I THINK I'm not in bad shape, b/c I can walk for miles, BUT I DON'T. And I'm huffing and puffing on a picturesque hike. And I take a handful of meds every day. I want to do this with friends! Will you be my friend? :-) (courtesy of Mr. Rogers.)

Do you need LOTS of motivation to get out of the house?

I need a "well, I said I'd go" motivation. The kind where you hear from folks if you don't show up! The kind where you're the HOST and HAVE to be there.

Would you be motivated if the other people in your group were all starting at the same place and providing support for each other?

We can be at different levels, but hanging out and talking is essential. I can have a good hike with my DOG for company. He's a wonderful listener, but he doesn't share much. And he never says, "I went on that hike you skipped, and I had a great time, but I missed you."

Do you prefer to get your exercise while exploring the wonders of nature rather than in a regular fitness class?

Oh, my, I forgot to join up! LOL. I just moved to Lewiston with my 18 yo son. I work in Auburn, and this area is like the red-headed stepchild to Portland. Everyone forgets there are interesting happenings here!
