Yes! I posted a question on our local "Next Door" page - "Is anyone near "my road" interested in walking in the AM?"  I received 4 replies but once you start talking about schedules, one person committed. We now walk 2 to 3 mornings a week. Prior to that, my motivation was low to get out and walk alone so i'm very happy i found my walking buddy! We talk and see other neighbors. Time flies and distance adds up quickly when you aren't paying attention. We also vary our route to check out other neighborhoods to keep it interesting.

My walking buddy is Dr. John, a retired pediatrician. Most Saturday mornings we walk 3.5 miles to get coffee. Round trip 7 miles. We have great conversations and laugh at each others sharp wit.
