The season is waning but we are still going on!

We’re coming to the end of the racing season but we only slow down and change venues.

Two marathon events coming up – in Baltimore and Chicago. Good luck to Ela and Susan in Chicago on Sunday! I’ll be in Baltimore checking out the city and the course for all of you for next year!

Last Sat, there were many out walking at 7:00 and 7:30 – training, recovering or some just came out for breakfast! It was great to see everyone.

Next Saturday, we move back to Mt Pleasant Cemetery, to our winter home and winter hours, 8:30am start. We’ll continue walking on Tuesdays and Thursdays until the end of October when it gets too dark.

We have some training planned for November with Barb Gormley to help you weather the winter. Now is the time to check out other exercise options – near your home or work, and hopefully with someone else so that you ensure that you actually do it. Personally, I’m going to attend fitness classes at the North Toronto Community Centre on Tues and Thurs nights. They have classes all week for all levels of fitness, as well as a pool. Membership is quite inexpensive.

Save the date – Nov. 26th will be our annual ‘black and medals’ dinner where you get to show off all your medals, and socialize with all the TPWers. We can talk about plans for the winter and spring, and generally socialize and celebrate our terrific first year as Toronto Power Walkers!

We’ve come a long way. Keep walking the distance!
