I am looking for people who enjoy walking whether they are in my city or not. It would be great to have someone to walk with on a weekly basis...maybe even start a walking club. We could challange and encourage each other to walk farther each week and track our progress on mapmywalk.com.

please let me know if you are interested.

I like walking too, but can never get anyone to help motivate me to get out there and do it! It would be great to have someone to have friendly challenges with and such!

Me and my boyfriend go walking atleast 5 nights a week , sometimes more. But I love it. And it definitely helps having someone go with you and motivate you to go.

I walk every morning, on the treadmill, though. Very Happy Does that count?

One cool thing about the treadmill is that is tracks your distance. I think I might set some distance goals & put them in my bio.

I've been looking for a walking buddy too. I've never heard of mapmywalk.com I always used Google map to check my distance, but now I'm going to check it out.

wow, I posted this so long ago I didn't expect any responses now...lol! Map my walk is pretty cool and they now have a free iPhone/iPod app that will count your steps and map your walk/run/bike or whatever it is you are doing to get in shape. We could either start with a number of steps or how many miles - what do you all think.

on a side note, why did my starting weight change...hmmm curious.

I noticed the date after I responded. I've already created a map on mapmywalk.com it is so much easier than google. I would love to be part of a walking group. My username there is the same as here if anyone wants to add me as a buddy.
