Tuesday Evening Walk in Kirkwood

Meet at the parking lot just west of the Kirkwood Amtrack Station for a walk. There are sidewalks and most of the street are well lit. We will walk approximately 3 to 4 miles.

PLEASE BE ON TIME. IT IS UNFAIR TO KEEP THE OTHERS WAITING.
The station is located the heart of Kirkwood, Missouri, at the corner of Argonne Avenue and Kirkwood Road (a.k.a Lindbergh Blvd.)

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.

    Is there any way I can join you at the end of the walk? I am recovering from a broken leg & am only up to about a mile walking. But I would love to come and join for dinner :-)
