Home

We are an informal group of walkers dedicated to walking for fitness and pleasure, training to achieve our individual goals and enjoying the companionship and inspiration of like-minded women (and a few good men).

We are serious about our walking but equally serious about laughing, talking and eating breakfast. Many of us started as JeansMarines and carry on Jean’s tradition of caring for and encouraging each other.

We are inclusive and welcome the occasional runner but our emphasis is on walking – whether strictly for pleasure or to better your half or full marathon time. We are all ages, all sizes and all degrees of fitness but we share the belief, that with time, training and tenacity, we can walk the distance, step by step.

And a big thank you to our Sponsor – Harbord House!

This morning’s walk was cool and crisp, but sunny. Hats, gloves and winter jackets were worn by the eight who turned out to enjoy the fall colours. As usual, the conversation …

Loss and joy…

Fall is a bittersweet season. There is both beauty and death in its eye-delighting colours and monochromatic landscapes. A dear friend died this week, after a long and awful illness. I am glad she is at peace and I grieve her absence. I have been here before and know that my feelings will vacillate between …
