This is a get up and get started group so jump right in. At present we are mostly a group for Monday through Friday during day time hours. Need a few day time pals, maybe a lunch date, someone to go to a Matinee with? Just pure simple friendship and support right where you are at. No perfection required. A bit of exercise but not up to the great outdoors??? Some of us can meet at Orange Park Mall for a casual 20 minute walk it is indoors and lunch after. Then on a different day perhaps just lunch somewhere to chit chat. Want a bit more exercise try a River Walk off Kingsley and River Road in Orange Park it is designed to expand our walking as it is fit for each of us. This River Walk can be just shy of 3 miles for the willing depending on how far you want to go--- this is for the outdoors crowd at this time most of us are only walking a mile to 2 miles depending on how we feel when we show up presently these are Monday, Wed, and Friday at 9 am. Some of us may stop sooner; it is a mid-paced walk--- not a power walk but not slow either. There are many other groups but none that I see that combine both fitness and socializing. There are groups that socialize in the evenings and this group will not target what is already out there to do. The members will determine which events are created for the group. A short walk then social time has been the beginning basis indoors at the Orange Park Mall and very public for meeting up to start out. The rest is up to us. Outings will be planned as organizers are willing to step up and host. Haven't quite found your thing--- then ask or make a suggestion we can always put it out there someone might be interested. :) I always welcome messages for this group. The hardest part for me is getting out the door to get started. This group has made it easier and more joyful to be a bit more active. I hope you find your niche where ever it may be. Age, weight, size, race.... it doesn't matter just be you. Happy Day.
***Always check before you attend a Meetup to be sure it has not been cancelled. If you do not see walkers rsvping then no-one has opted to attend. We are going to leave up regular walks for anyone who wishes to attend. Note most of us do better with regular attendance. Our connections and communications come through the group posting and messages. Sometimes life reaches out and grabs us. We try to be consistent. During holidays and various events recurring meetup events might be removed, cancelled or altered.
*****Inactive members will be removed. You can always rejoin. Twice a year donations are requested to help pay for the hosting of this group on Meetup. They are voluntary. The cost for 50 members is 60.00 for six months and 120.00 for 12 months. <off by some cents but you get the gist. Meetup charges to have groups posted and hosted on their sight.
