What I want:
- Somebody to walk with on a regular basis.

Benefits:
- Motivate each other to walk by being accountable to another person.
- Can set joint schedule and goals.
- Companionship while walking.
- More security while walking.

About me:
I am a 36 yr. old female that works afternoons so my schedule is awkward for this type of thing. Ideally, I would love to walk when I get home at night, which is around midnight each night, or I'd like to walk home from work instead. Unfortunately it is a source of contention between my spouse and I; he doesn't want me walking alone at night, and I prefer exactly that. I live near Oxford and Quebec, and I work right across from Victoria hospital, so a walk home is roughly 1.5hrs at a leisurely pace.
The alternative would be to walk in the daytime, though I am often busy with errands and housework so it will be harder to fit that in. I would be available in the day from about 9am to 3pm most days, but my schedule is variable and fills up fast.

My Reason:
- I need to get back in shape. I used to walk to and from work, and I also walked to almost every errand, but we moved quite far from our old neighbourhood 6 months ago, and I've barely walked since. I have gained weight and become very unfit, and I feel walking is the best way to start.

So, is there anyone in this lovely city who can fit me into their schedule?

Thanks for reading, and I hope to hear from you!
