Calling All Walkers
Published on Monday, April 14, 2014 - 10:41am
Are you fabulous at 50+? Are you looking for a way to get out, meet new people, get some exercise and fresh air, and explore the Petworth neighborhood? The Petworth Pacers, our walking fitness program for seniors, began last summer and fall to foster fitness and friendship. We’re getting the Pacers group up and running, err, walking again on May 4, just in time for Older Americans Month.
While the group is aimed at those 50+, adults of all ages are welcome to join. We’ll be focusing on low-impact, moderately paced walks in or around the Petworth neighborhood. We'll do a warm-up inside, then head out into the neighborhood for about 45 minutes. Once we arrive back at the library, we'll do some stretching. It is recommended that you wear loose-fitting clothing designed to move and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated. Charts will be available to keep track of progress. In case of inclement weather, we will have an indoor workout.
If you have any questions, please email Alexis or call (202) 243-1188 for more information.
