High Park, Central Park – Toronto Power Walkers had a busy weekend

Two groups walked in High Park this past Saturday The 7am group walked the distance early so that they could participate in a workshop on Race Walking. Ask Phyllis, Rorie, Ela, Mary, Lorna and James about it.

Our new TPW training shirt was revealed to the 8am group, most of whom placed their order ensuring they will have it for the Toronto Women’s Half on May 31. You can still order yours and receive it in May. The good news is we have shirts in all sizes to try on so that you order the correct size.

The 8am group did some hills in High Park and then headed to the lakeshore for the remaining distance.

It was a beautiful day and we were quickly reminded how important it is to wear sunscreen and to be well hydrated. Our TPW hats look great and most importantly protect us while we WALK THE DISTANCE!

As you know TPW members were in New York City this weekend to do the MORE Half Marathon. Extreme weather conditions led the organizers to cancel the marathon and change the Half to a “fun run” . Sound familiar?

I expect that we will learn firsthand from Maggie, Shirley, Rosemarie, Rosemary, Diane, Lee, May and Katherine what happened this past weekend. Congratulations to all who were there for the race and of course shopping, theatre and dining.

Our first workshop with Barb Gormley, CustomFit , is tonight, April 28th. We all look forward to learning more from Barb.

Congratulations to Susan B for completing her first WOW course.

The Sporting Life 10K is this Sunday ..for those of us doing the race, lets meet before the race on the west side of Yonge Street north of Sporting Lifeat 7:30 (Funeral home on corner)

Those not doing Sporting Life will be walking Saturday morning 8am in High Park. Helen will be there, as will others. If you want to walk your distance at Sunnybrook park, contact Phyllis as she will be there with Rorie.

Reminder we are doing intervals on Tuesday and a tempo walk on Thursday from NTCC
