No! I'd walk more regularly if I could find a walking buddy near me--the Northgate area of Cincinnati, near Pippin/Berthbrook/Greenriver. Anyone interested?

@1phatgirl  Have you asked any friends to walk with you?  Do you have social places, church, clubs or other things you are a part of where you can ask others to help you find someone?  Sometimes it is simply asking someone else to join you - maybe once a week to start and can lead up to more?  If not, we can virtually help you!  Post if you walked today and tell us where you went and what you saw.  It is raining here in DC all day but I still walked my dog early this a.m. before heading to work.  I have also walked inside around the office a few times today to keep moving.

My two sisters live in the same community with me and we walk every morning together. We also work out in our gym together so it's more fun!

Yes, my walking buddy is my husband of 42 years. We still have lots to talk about every day and I am so thankful we have this time together! He has a rare form of muscular dystrophy and we feel blessed that he is able to walk and enjoy the beautiful outdoors with me each morning.

My walking buddy is my granddaughter.

 

We go to different parks and after she plays, we walk around the park.

Yes I have a buddy. I put my 1 year old grandson, Samuel , in his stroller and we walk in the morning. Soon my 3 year old granddaughter, Taylor, will join us. We sing and talk all the time we are walking❤️

I'm determined to meet the 30-min. walk-a-day challenge even though I don't have a walking buddy.  An after-work walk would be ideal; tomorrow I will see if I can encourage a colleague to join me.  Wish me luck!
