I would walk the bridge if I lived closer to Charleston. As it is I live an hour and a half from Charleston, but everyone within an hour commutes there for anything they actually need besides everyday supplies. :P

You could try walking up a bit. If you become too frightened, head back down and walk to Patriot's Point. I have a friend that was afraid and that is what she did. She got a bit further each time she tried and can now walk the bridge!

I would love to walk the bridge. It's just every time I go over it in the car I am almost paralyzed with fear lol so I'm not sure how I would do on the edge of the bridge with nowhere to go! It is a big goal of mine so I hope that changes very soon!

It is going to have to get a bit warmer and drier for me!

I need to get back into doing this too. It has just been crazy busy for me for the last 2-3 months. I'm an assistant Girl Scout Leader and my troop's Cookie manager and it has been a harry-scary cookie season this year. I'm so glad it's over and looking forward to getting back on track with my workouts.

What days/times are you looking to walk the bridge? I am working on getting over breaking/really bruising my tailbone a couple of months ago and I think walking would really help too.

Working up to it - finished physical therapy and have started gentle walking. Hoping to be running again by fall!

For anyone who has walked the bridge and thought, "I want to at least pass someone" - I am that person. The way I look at it, I might be slow, but I made it to the crest of the bridge.

Anyone still interesting in doing the Bridge on the weekends? I would love to get back into doing this. I'm not much of a runner but I definitely like the walking and doing this will be a great thing for me since I have already signed up for the 2014 Bridge Run/Walk.

Early morning is best for me about 7:30am but I could do later; I just know that the later you go in the morning the more heat there is. emoticon Later mornings is better come October and later.

No time has been set yet. The weather was so rainy or windy. Trust me - you don't want to try the bridge in high winds! You feel like you are being pushed over.

I have a pretty crazy week since I will be out of town over the weekend, so I probably won't make the bridge this week.

Anyone want to shoot for Tuesday, June 4, at 5:30 or 6:00? Parking in the Mt. Pleasant park is now free!

I was wondering if a set time had been decided upon for Bridge walks/runs? In the afternoon is good for me during the week after 530 or before 9 on the weekend so we're not caught in the hottest part of the day.

I would love to do a group bridge walk. I don't have a preference on time. Saturday or Sunday works for me.

You will love it! I am busy for the next couple of weeks, but maybe some of us could set something up.

A regular time each week would be nice - maybe 9 or 10 on Saturdays? I prefer earlier, but I am betting most folks would rather be later.
