Hello, My Name is Heather and I am new to Sparkpeople. I live and rockford and I'm looking for someone to walk with. I am shy when it comes to doing things on my own so I wont do it. So I was wondering if you are still looking for someone to walk with I would love to meet up and walk. I am open most days. Let me know Thanks Heather emoticon

Looking for a biking partner to hit the trails after work. I like to ride the White Pine usually put in at south end of Riverside Park and ride to Belmont, sometimes Rockford if it isn't getting dark! Have a knee injury and haven't been out there for a while - so looking for some beginners to ride with. :-)

Also if there are any beginner walkers - would love to hook up. I can walk a pretty good pace - but jogging is out of the question! Has to be after work for me (6ish).

It's so much easier to stay committed when there is more than just me!!!!!

Remember when you are posting to look down through the previous posts for someone who already posted about your area - then click on their picture or "View My Sparkpage" or "Send Private Message" (or whatever the exact verbiage is) if it's showing, and message them about getting together :)

We CAN do it. We WILL do it!

I am halfway between Greenville, Stanton, and Lakeview. I would be willing to drive to any of them and walk or even attempt to run with someone. I am new to Michigan and think this would be a wonderful way to meet new people that are like minded.
I am hoping to do the 5/3rd run in May so running is fine also.

Millinuim park is a good idea. Lots of trails around the lake (swan?) and along the river.

Also, walking in kentwood area - 5 to 15 miles at a time if anyone is interested.

Is there anybody around the Cedar Springs/Rockford area that would like a walking partner? I walk/jog the white pine trail, tuesday after class and before work so between 12:30-3pm. Wednesday anytime before 3pm, Friday anytime before 3pm. When it gets older the cedar springs elementary has open time to walk in the evenings, but i'm not sure my schedule will work out with those times.

I have been going to Millinium Park walking my dog about five to six times a week. If anyone want to join let me know. I don't walk fast. I have lower back problems but the key is I am motivated to get out there as much as possible. I am working on 30-45 minutes.

Walking partner wanted. However, I need someone who is patient. My nerves are dying in my right leg but I also deal with being anemic, chronic pain, and migraines. So if someone is willing to take slow short walks to start off, I would love to hear from you.

I live around Kalamazoo and 60th. I usually walk about 30 minutes with my son in his stroller. I certainly wouldn't mind having a motivator! I find if I don't schedule time, I don't do it. Email me if someone wants to be my walking buddy. I walk evenings as I work until 530pm.

I live just outside of downtown, I'd be willing to go to Eastown, the mall, wherever, I'm pretty centrally located. Zenxb, I love Eastown and if you don't mind the cold, I'd be up for walking. I started walking yesterday and don't even mind trudging the cold as long as it's not blizzarding.

What times can you walk? I live in GR Township, so you are not far from me. I am somewhat limited timewise as I work full time and have 2 sons, but maybe we could work something out. I have just started walking again after hurting my back and I am hoping to work up to a walk/run in the next few weeks.

I'm near the airport, but I found something that really works for me when I can't find anyone here to walk beside me.

My sister and I "walk" together via phone. She's about an hour away from me, and that's too far to drive for us to walk together, so we decided we'd walk at our respective houses everyday, while talking to each other on our cell phones. I love it, because we're at different fitness levels and can walk at our own pace while catching up on things with kids and work and each other. We just plan to be available at a certain time to talk and walk together.

So, my suggestion is a see if you can find someone who wouldn't mind being your "phone buddy"!

Hi, all!

Tamela, on our team, is also looking for a walking partner. Woodland Mall opens up at 7am for walkers to get in a workout before the stores open (at 10am?). They have a map of the inside to know how many miles you've walked. A full course including all hallways is around .85 of a mile. Post here if you're interested in getting together to walk! The more, the merrier!!

We CAN do it. We WILL do it!

I'm guilty of slacking lately, but am seriously looking for a walking partner. I would like to lose 60 pounds and I live near 44th/Division. If anyone is interested, please let me know! :)
