Mar 29 Walk the Centennial Greenway Trail in Clayton

Let's walk this newly completed trail.  It runs from Shaw Park in Clayton to Olive Blvd along I-170 (inner belt).  http://www.greatriversgreenway.org/trails/centennial-shaw-park-to-olive.aspx

Meet at the Shaw Park parking lot between the south side of the park and Forest Park Express Way.  This walk will be about 3 to 4 miles.  Afterword we will get breakfast someplace near by.

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. 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.

I will try and make a decision to cancel because of weather by 7:30 am

    I really tried to make it, but I got an important phone call, and it delayed my trip. I tried to find the group but was unsuccessful. So sorry to have missed you folks.
