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.

The Symphony of Life
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!
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
