Mother's Day Groove Hike - Murphy Hanrehan Park Reserve

Come join me for a fitness hike on the hills at Murphy Hanrehan - the purpose is to get out, get aerobic exercise, get the heart beating, probably sweat, and move, move move.  We typically hike 3.5 - 4.0 mph the entire time. The hiking starts at 9:30 am, so be there a few minutes early to get ready, get introduced etc. To avoid the skeeters while we get ready to go, we'll be meeting in the parking lot near the restrooms.

If you don't have plans to celebrate the day with your mother, feel free to bring a picnic lunch and we'll enjoy lunch together after the hike.  Please not picnic interest in the comments. 

Looking forward to getting out and enjoying a great hike on Mother's Day!

    Thanks for the reminder Madeleine. I cancelled. Our family ended up planning a Mother's Day brunch instead of a dinner.

    I did a bit of a doofus job of managing my schedule and am not going to be able to lead this hike. No worries, though, as Cindy and Barb have graciously accepted to lead on my behalf - THANK YOU!! I'm keeping myself on the attendee list even though I won't be there so I can still send out reminders. I've upped the attendee limit to 21, however, so I'm not taking up a spot someone else could have. Have a great hike, everyone! Bummed, bummed, bummed I won't be able to be there...

      I know Cindy and Barb will do an excellent job as hosts, but you will be missed none the less.

    Gotta change the description here. Apparently, most of Murphy Hanrehan is not dog friendly. So, no dogs on this hike, and I'll be leaving Bella at home :-(.

      With a month yet to go, it's still possible to change the venue to a more puppy friendly park. Just sayin'. ~grins~

      Thanks Tim. Lookin' forward to Murphy, though.
