    OK i was standing in front of "One Harding Rd" at 9am and I think I saw two people jog away some 200 meters to the right of the bathrooms. Did anyone show up? I walked the lake, looked around when I finished (10:15) went home.

    June 14, 2014

    • Cathy

      We met in front of bathrooms at 9 split up and then got back around 10:00. There were 6 of us and we can still get the bugs out of timing.

    Because of a problem of my own doing I am unable to make it this morning. I apologize. Looking forward to meeting everyone next time.

    I would love to attend this weekend, but unfortunately, I am set to work that morning.

    June 5, 2014

    • Rose O

      Okay, how about during the week? I like morning or early afternoon rather than late. Also, we can do walks at ocean beach since they have a path or even walk on the sand which is great exercise.

      June 5, 2014

    • Rose O

      I think I'll be able to make it.

    I can't make next Saturday 6/14/14 but I hope there is another walk/run located at Lake Merced. I know this will be a fun event.

  • Andy U

    Cathy - I showed up at Harding Rd at 8:50 waited a half hour, and didn't see you.

    June 7, 2014

    • Andy U

      lol. And me a college graduate. Yes, I'll be there. Will we meet in the parking lot right after you turn off 35?

      June 7, 2014

    • Cathy

      the parking lot by the boathouse and bathrooms.

  • Blair Ellen E.

    I can never do a Saturday, only Sunday on the weekend :(

    June 7, 2014

    • Cathy

      We will have many more varied opportunities.

    So sorry, I will be out of the country at that time.

    June 6, 2014

  • Susan P

    A weekday? I'll walk, my knees are WAY over 50 but I'm reasonably fit!

    June 4, 2014

    • Cathy

      We will meet at different times-different locations. If you can't make this one then send your ideas so that we can map it out in for the future.

      June 5, 2014

    • Cathy

      I work out in the morning but I will see if others are interested in other times of the day on weekdays.

      June 6, 2014

  • Veronika

    I can't make this one, and although I'm quite active physically, my knees don't respond well to high-impact movements like running. I like Gigi's Ocean Beach suggestion. Up & down the Lyon St. steps a few times is fun, or anything in The Presidio.

    June 5, 2014

    • Cathy

      Great suggestions. I will bring them up at our start up meeting.

      June 6, 2014

  • Andy U

    Love Lake Merced. See you Saturday, Cathy.

    June 5, 2014

    • Cathy

      See you then Andy.

    Sorry, didn't realize I already have a commitment that time. Would love to go another time or place!

    June 5, 2014

    • Cathy

      stay in touch we will be doing some great activities in the future.

      June 6, 2014

  • Inna

    Sorry, I can't make it this early. Also, I will skip the running part in the future (like few other people), but would love to go for a fast long walk. How about walks around North Beach, South Beach, Marina? Those are nice areas, so walks would not been boring.

    June 5, 2014

    • Cathy

      Sounds perfect. We can meet at the Embarcadero-North Beach- Aquatic Park. We have so many options. Also looking for members to sponsor events like cooking, health, beauty, wellness topics. We have so much to share with each other. Being active is just the beginning.

      June 6, 2014

  • Ramon Z.

    I exercise in the gym for three plus hours at least five days a week. I am embarrassed, though, that the one thing I've never done is run. Being part of this group will incorporate running into my regimen. I cannot wait.

    June 5, 2014

    • Cathy

      good let's just start and we can correct from there.

      June 5, 2014

  • Joanna S.

    Sounds good... Not a runner though. Have to watch the knees, they need to last a lot longer!

    June 5, 2014

    • Cathy

      No problem we will walk-plan other events lots of possibilities.

      June 5, 2014

  • Louise

    So sorry to miss this first group - alas a vet appointment was already scheduled!

    June 4, 2014

    • Cathy

      Stay tuned!!! This will be fun!

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.
