Wednesday Fast Walk

Alright local ladies, we're on a real Chub Club roll now!

Thanks to the persistence of Kate, we now have an official Chubby Mommy Fast Walking Club. We've met twice, and will meet again this Wednesday at 6:30 a.m., near Sawyer Park in Bend, so we can walk around the river.

Here's the link for the meetup place: Click here for a map

Turn north on 1st street from Portland and drive until you see a place to park (no cross street, it dead-ends.) If you switch to satellite view you can see the trail.

We are going early because it's still so very, very hot at lunch time. But we can have evening options if people are interested.

Any of you non-locals who need help getting a Chubby Mommy Running Club started in your area, email me, and I'll lead you to some great online tools to get you started.

Or, just grab some friends and tell them "we're walking with our virtual friends today!" We can all Twitter while we walk and post pictures. Wouldn't that be a hoot?

And yes, of course, it's okay to run, and you don't have to be chubby to participate. And you don't have to walk fast, we'll team up by desired speeds.

T-shirts coming soon!

I would like to note that you don't have to be a mommy to participate either :)

Hope to see you there!

Wish I could be there!

Yes, good point mizinformation. Chubby Mommy Running Club is all inclusive.

We have chubbies (like me) marathoners, full time working moms, stay at home moms, and Professional women who don't have kids. All are welcome.

If you bring your dogs, keep them on leash, and make sure they can play nicely. And bring bags to pick up their poop!

That is all.

Even if i live in Montana, could i be like a member in absentia? Would i still be eligible for a t-shirt?? they aren't going to be orange are they? i look terrible in orange - not at all like how YOU look in orange you gorgeous thing. i hate you for that. i so want to be able to wear orange. coral even, would make me happy. tangerine. melon. salmon. anything...

Miss Julie - Chubby Mommy said...

Oh dear, I fear the shirts will be orange. But maybe we'll get orange shirts and blue shirts, how's that?

And yes, you can be a long distance member, or better yet, start your own group locally!

Seriously, let's get this thing going nationally, then we can get on Oprah - woot!

kjs said...

Maybe Oprah should form her own group from members of her studio audience.

I have formed a group already. we are two... read my blog to learn more!

and blue, i can do. :-)

If Oprah wants to start a club, I'd be happy to coach here here at Chubby Mommy Running Club. Please have her call me!
