The West 104th Street Block Association is collaborating with the West 102nd & 103rd Streets Block Association and BAiP to offer residents a 60-minute group walk on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. Led by neighbor Teresa Elwert, the walk will be at a brisk pace – target 20 blocks in 17 minutes – and usually incorporate hills.
You can use the walk as training for your planned activities, such as fundraising walks or any long-distance walk requiring endurance and cardio-vascular conditioning. Or you can just use it as your weekend morning constitutional. The group could also give itself a goal and train for its own long-distance walks, such as from the Battery to the Bronx Bridge, or from Bloomingdale (our neighborhood) to the Four Freedoms Park. But the idea is to get together with nearby neighbors and exercise.
Members will have the option to stop for refreshments in a nearby shop after the walk. Teresa has a great deal of experience and runs a popular brisk walking group on alternate weekday mornings. If you’re interested in participating on Sundays, please email BloomingdaleTrioWalk@icloud.com so that you can receive detailed information and the local meeting place.
If you’d like to lead a similar group on Saturdays, send an email to the same address.
