Too (Re)tired to Walk?
We don’t think so. That’s why we are starting a walking group for retired folks under the guidance of our recently retired 75-year-old John Pitcairn. John is a former Certified ChiWalking Instructor and former Co-Director of Jeff Galloway’s Run-Walk-Run Marathon Training Program.
Walks will be on Tuesdays and Fridays at 10am starting from the Runner’s Edge basement and last from 30 to 90 minutes, mostly on roads, some on paved trails.
We envision a casual, relaxed day of healthy exercise with lots of chit-chat, socializing and some heavy breathing on hills.
Retired runners and run-walk-run folks looking for a cross training or recovery day, and those rehabbing from injury or surgery, please join us for a healthy walk. Rehabbers don’t have to be retired. Almost-retired? OK, you are welcome too. Just no sprinting ahead. And beginners… take more than your first step with us.
