My name is Helene & I live near Lake Merrit in Oakland. This lake is 3.1 miles around and exactly 5K.
I would like to start a group of walkers.... I have a gal at my meeting who wishes to co-chair a group with me.
Do you have an interest? Which days and times? I have experience coordinating groups and I know this will
be fun making friends and a serious support system in the area. Each day may have a subgroup.
I am looking forward to meeting you and running my first mile EVER.
Hi there - I'm Rosie... I am VERY interested in walking the Lake... Tuesdays and Thursdays are best for me (anytime)... or evenings on the other weekdays.
I am a weight watcher from Alameda and I am interested in your walk group. I will be out of town this next week, but will be home next weekend. Let me know the when and where, and I'll be there.
My name is DJ and I live near the lake and I would love to join your walking team. I can walk any day of the after 5pm, and anytime on the weekends. I already walk the lake at least 3 to 4 times a week but would love to be apart of a team. Please keep me updated on when things will be starting up.
Since we have different times to walk, let's put down our pesonal emails and we can collaborate based on our schedules.
I can walk Lake Merrit on Mondays after 7pm
Tuesdays after 7pm
Fridays after 7pm
and Sundays to be determined.
I dont mind putting out my cell phone number which is 510-825 5881 - my name is pronounces **** - leeeen.
I walked today with a girfriend, running every 3rd minute for the 1st mile.
I also signed up for the Lake Merrit 5K on August 23rd. Its called Time is on Your Side.
Please share your victories.
I haven't started walking yet but maybe what we'll have to do is form a few groups to get together on different days. I'm avaliable to walk any weekday... Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays in the evening... and Tuesdays and Thursdays any time... if anyone is interested please send me a private message or email me at email@example.com
Tomorrow (Monday 4/20) I have a step class in San Leandro fBally's from 5:30pm to 6:30pm and can meet you anywhere around Lake Merrit by 7pm. The sun sets at 7:50pm. Is this too late for you? I may be exhaused but I really want to at least give it a try. Just name the place and I will drive there and then since it will be dark when we are done, I can drive you home if you prefer.
What is your level of walking? I don't run but am trying to a little bit - like every 3rd minute I can try to run for a minute. (It's the suggestion from this training program on active.com.) However, since I will have already excercised pretty heavily earlier, just walking is also okay.
Just for this one reply, email me at work so that I can plan to come right home after the gym: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you Rosie.
How did your weekend go?
I work near Lake Merrit and walk during my lunch. Does a lunch time walk work for anyone? I could possible walk after work about 4:00, but not on a regular basis.
Thanks for posting. I see that over 100 people have viewed this Team board and more will read and post after today. I am hopeful that you will find someone to walk with you at lunch.
I look forward to you finding a walking buddy.
Thanks for your interest.
I will be walking the lake this evening around 6pm if anyone is interested in walking. After I walk the lake I will be walking the stairs across the street from the lake...if you know the lake area you know the stairs I'm talking about.
I work near Lake Merritt and could walk during my lunch as well. I'm on the Grand side, near Harrison and could walk Mondays, Tuesdays, and/or Thursdays. What days work for you?
I work across the street from the new church. Do you know how to private message someone? I don't! Maybe we can meet up in front of the church on Harrison? We can try for Thursday?
I am not sure anyone from our board has met up to walk yet. Have you?
So, here is what I propose, (it is temporary as my schedule is never the same)
THIS WEDNESDAY 4/29 meet to walk at 6pm. (can be an flexible 1/2 hour either way)
NEXT SUNDAY 5/10 meet to walk at 10am (can be flexible)
Hit me back personally or on the board to RSVP.
Do you want to RUN or WALK or BOTH?
Also, check in and let me know how many times a week you are exercising?
I'm out of town right now but I'm very interested in joining your "team". I reside 1/2 time in Oakland near the lake and 1/2 the time in so California (where I am right now). I'll be back middle of May and hope that you'll still be walking then and that I might join you all. I need the comraderie and friendship and encouragement - I'm around 5 lbs or so from goal so this is really important to me.
I work in Santa Clara and live in Oakland. I can do it at 7 pm most days but I perfer the weekends. It would be great to be part of a walking group.
