Anyone in Plum or Penn Hills? I would love a walking buddy. Used to walk with DH at the local tracks and now he doesn't want to anymore.

I am 5 minutes from the Mills & would love a walking buddy. My available times are limited until after tax season, but would be free any evening after April 15. If you're still interested then, let me know.

Yes, Colleen I saw that you are close. When the weather breaks I will be doing more outside. I also have a free membership to a certain gym in Crafton/Ingram Shopping Center through my health insurance carrier. Feel free to send me a message. They say its always better to do exercise with someone else. I have not been as disciplined as in the past as far as exercise goes, but the food plan is working well.

hey Kat, small world....we have two dogs, which are usually too much for me to walk by myself, so my husband and I try to walk them on the weekends, around Elliott, maybe we have seen each other. Sometimes after work, I try to walk them up and down the back alley, they are happy if they just get to go, I guess.

We need to meet up......maybe without the dogs to start with?

hey ,nice to see other people mention walking in Greentreee I live in the West End, Elliott, to be exact. And would love to meet someone in Greentree, on weekends, possibly for a long walk. Now that the time has changed, it would be too dark for me to meet after work.

Hi Kristen,
This is awesome. I work in the Strip District near the 31st bridge and Iive in Beechview which is right near the tunnels. I usually go to the Greentree park to walk. Evenings are great for me too. If you work anywhere close to the 31st street bridge this would be do able as well. If you are really interested, let me know and I can give you my phone number and we can make plans to meet. The park is right off of the parkway so it's very easy to get to. This is probably closer to you. I like it since it's very open and there are many people around. There's always softball and soccer games going on. Just let me know and welcome to the Burgh. :)

Hi all,

I live in downtown Pittsburgh and work in Washington. I definitely won't walk around downtown alone or without a purpose, so I'm happy to drive somewhere convenient for a walk. I'm in the north hills often, around McKnight and Camp Horne. I'm not from Pittsburgh originally so aside from the areas I frequent, I'm not too familiar with where to go.

It would have to be evening or weekend (no early mornings :) ), unless you're in downtown Washington for walks at the lunch hour. I've been getting some coworkers into taking a short walk before eating.

Kristen

Hi Cam,
I live in Beechview. Have you find a walking buddy yet? I usually go to Greentree Park to walk in the evenings. It's hard to get motivated sometimes and when I do go I only go around 3 times around the whole park. Let me know and maybe we can meet each other out there.

Still looking for a walking buddy near the Cheswick/Springdale area. I live very close to Pittsburgh Mills which is an awesome place to walk when the weather is crappy (as it so often is around here, lol)

May God help me do this, for I don't have the strength to do it alone!

Hi Everyone! I just join SPARK Pittsburgh! I am looking for an evening walking buddy in the Butler Area (which is about 45 minutes north of Pittsburgh). I'm currently walking 2 days a week with a friend but I'd like to walk 5 days a week. emoticon My goal is to eventually run a 5K. Hopefully by September or October.

You can either have EXCUSES or Results. You can't have BOTH!

Hi BEEGRACE9! I live in Beechview and run through Dormont and Mt. Lebanon. If you are ever looking for a running buddy, PM me. I am training for the half marathon in May (my first, the longest race I've done to date is a 10K). I run a 30-min. 5K and 67-min 10K so I am not a super fast runner. If you are ever interested in an occasional evening or Sunday AM running buddy, let me know.

Hi I am a new member. Did you and the member above you on the board ever start a walking group for South Hills people? I am female, 38 but act 25 lol. I like to exercise. Dont know about you all but I like track walking or park walking. Usually I go to Mt Lebanon HS track or Keystone Oaks. Former attorney turned stay at home Mom. I can walk day or night. Also, cool with me if people went at different paces and/or used Ipods. Willing to travel in South Hills. Need accountability!

Let me know if you or anyone is interested!

Thanks

Hi! I started walking 3 days a week, starting in January of this year. I would walk for an hour and then read in my car for an hour while my daughter attended college. Two days a week, I watched my grandson while my daughter was at school. On nice days, we'd walk or I'd just take him to the playground and I'd walk around the area he was playing. I lost a total of 14 pounds without changing my eating habits. I still try to walk 3 or 4 days a week, at least 5000 steps.

Is there anyone interested in walking in the Northside area in the mornings from around 9 am tlll 10 am? I live in Bellevue....anyone around that area?
