Aug 9 A Morning Walk in Kirkwood

We will walk approximately 3 to 4 miles.

PLEASE BE ON TIME. IT IS UNFAIR TO KEEP THE OTHERS WAITING.

If the weather is bad and I have not cancelled, you will have to decide whether you want to chance going any way. Most of the time we will probably still do dinner.



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.

After we are done walking, usually by 7:30, we will adjourn to one of the local restaurants to talk and replenish the calories we just walked off.

I will try and make a decision to cancel because of weather by 4:00pm.

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.
