Keeper is a good place to walk - when is your lunch hour? I've had to walk in the freezing weather just because our two dogs want to go for a walk with us (they are kinda nuts that way... even want to go when they have already done their business outdoors.). It's also closer to where I am up north of town, and I'm a lot more familiar with that area of downtown/Riverside/Delanno since I used to live on Stackman just a few blocks from the Art Museum...

I'm not sure, I'm not usually up to walking unless it's nice out - at least 45 or 50 degrees. I work right by the Keeper and the Exploration Place - I usually go on my lunch break when I can. I live by Lincoln & Hillside, I don't know if there are any good trails in that area or closeby.

So where we gonna go!? I'm more of a waddling buddy, the 18-20 minutes a mile is about what I do walking these days. There was a time I was around 11-13 minutes walking... The nearest park between us that I know of is Chisholm Creek Park but I'm really not as familiar with what is down in the SE part of town... other than walking around inside Sprouts!! hahahaha

I would love to have a hiking or jogging buddy. I will say this I am not very fast. I can only usually do a 12 or 13 min mile (running), and walking it's closer to 18-20. I've had problems trying to find a running buddy because everyone is so much faster than me!

Hi there - was reading last Sunday's newspaper and read this article about a new book on the trails of Kansas - hiking, biking, etc.

I found it on Amazon but if you are an Anti-Amazon book buyer, you can also find it on their website (and it has a lot of Internet references so doubtless can buy it in various local booksellers like Watermark in Wichita):
kansastrailguide.com

I'm tempted to get a copy myself!

Sounds like a good idea. We have gotten together in the past at Chisholm Creek but hard to find a schedule that works for everyone, especially since some have to work on the weekends or have other obligations.

I actually came here to post a link to an article in yesterday's Wichita Eagle about five trails to explore in Wichita and surrounding area.

"Five nice treks within two hours of Wichita."

But for our family today we are continuing to work on the siding repair on our house.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend off, if that applies, and giving thanks to those who served and gave their lives for the freedoms we have.

Would anyone like to meet up and go for a jog a few weekends this summer? I jog indoors on my treadmill but would love to explore some trails around town and meet some new friends. Maybe an early Saturday jog - there are supposedly lots of trails around our town. :)
