Kathy’s News  March/April –Spring has Sprung 2022

 

Greetings fellow walkers! Time to Change… on March 13th SPRING AHEAD!

More Time for Walking, More Time for Showing up to our Club Walks

Thanks to the many members that do Show Up, I really enjoy your friendship. We belong to an AWESOME organization. Our tag line #America’s Walking Club. Fun Fitness and Friendship. We make our Walks Fun! Fitness depends on your choice of pace and distance. Friendship has more value for some of us. We like to walk together with others. These social recognitions flavor our walking lives. We have opportunities to walk further away from home. We can travel to festivals and conventions and make new friends. I am thankful for the wonderful people I met walking all over the country.

REMINDER: Traditional ONE DAY walks Registration 8:00 – 11:00 am return by 2:00pm. If you arrive after 10:30am we will stamp your achievement books before you start walking so you can take. New park area in Jurupa Valley very easy walk for all to enjoy.

GROUP WALKS start between 8:30-9:00am, so please make sure you get registered before you leave. Everyone must sign the registration waiver. As summer approaches the start times will change and vary depending on where they are. Thanks!!!

The Symphony of Life

 

BEYOND OURSELVES

We sometimes miss a blessing that’s right before our eyes

Preoccupied by earthly things which make us “worldly wise”

 

We fail to see beyond ourselves hearts that we have broken,

And we forget the angry words that we in haste have spoken

 

We fill our lives with selfish things forgetting those in need,

And miss the joy that sharing brings in our effort to succeed

 

How blessed we are when we believe and praise God with our lips,

For when we reach beyond ourselves – we touch His fingertips!

Clay Harrison

 

 

The month of MAY is fast approaching and soon the convention will be upon us.

So if you signed up for this wonderful trip make sure you don’t miss the bus.

 

I do believe that I have secured a spot on this magical tour,

All my bags are packed I’m on my way and wouldn’t miss it that’s “for sure”

 

To all our Low Desert Roadrunners out there and others enjoying the great outdoors.

 

Hope to see you on the trails or at our events we have coming up soon
