Evening Walk at Creve Coeur

  • Jul 23, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Creve Coeur Lakehouse

Meet at the CREVE COEUR LAKEHOUSE for a 1.5 hour walk. Approximately 4 miles.

Detail directions on their website http://www.cclakehous.... It is located on Creve Coeur Mill Road about half way between Olive and Maryland Heights Expressway. When you pull into the parking lot stay to the right. We meet in the far southeast corner.


What to bring:
- WATER – THIS IS IMPORTANT ALL YEAR LONG AND ESPECIALLY IN THE WARMER MONTHS. WE WILL USUALLY BE OUT FOR AT LEAST 1 ½ HOURS AND THAT IS TOO LONG TO GO WITHOUT REPLENISHING THE LIQUIDS THAT YOU WILL BE BURNING WHILE WALKING. – I AVOID DRINKING CAFFEINATED BEVERAGES BEFORE WALKING. THEY DRY ME OUT AND MAKE ME HAVE TO URINATE MORE. THE ARE A LOT OF GOOD ARTICLES ABOUT “effects of caffeine and exercise” ON THE INTERNET OR ASK YOU DOCTOR.
- Dress in layers (not sure what the weather will do). The top couple of layers should be easily unbuttoned or unzipped to allow easy ventilation. Wear a hat.
- I recommend broken in hiking shoes over Tennis shoes. A lot of the trails are over loose gravel and dirt and the treads on the hiking boots work much better.
- Snacks – EAT LIGHTLY BEFORE THE WALK AND BRING A POWER BAR OR SNACK TO MUNCH ON DURING THE WALK.

After the walk we will gather in the Lakehouse for some talk, food and drink.

Meetup Donation: Meetup charges me $72 every six months to have the Walking site. If you would like to donate $1 at some of the walks, it will be appreciated.

    It was humid but a nice pace for a beginner like me and very nice people.
