The next Walk-n-Talk is set to walk and talk its way around Burien – rain or shine – this Sunday, Dec. 2, starting at 2 p.m. at Burien Town Square Park.
While the Weather Peeps are predicting rain through the weekend, this will not deter the intrepid Walkers and Talkers.
“Will we be walkin’ and talkin’ and singin’ in the rain?” reads a note on WABI Burien’s website . “Incredibly, every Walk-n-Talk for the last 16 months, we’ve had dry weather (except that on one walk day it started drizzly and ended sunny). Maybe by scheduling our walk, we chase the rain away?”
Walkers and Talkers are encouraged to meet at 2 p.m. this Sunday, Dec. 2 on top of the grassy knoll at Burien Town Square Park for the monthly event.
“We will circle east along SW/S 152nd St., past and around Highline High School and Moshier Field, as far as southbound Des Moines Memorial Drive, then back west along S/SW 156th St., and north on 4th Ave. SW,” said WABI Organizer Maureen Hoffmann, who adds, “this month’s route was the one selected for our July Walk-n-Talk by Burien Frequent Walker, Rob Johnson.”
This 2.25 mile route has sidewalks the whole way (!) and is mostly flat, so this is an ideal route for folks with mobility issues or who are pushing baby strollers.
WHEN: Sunday, December 2, 2012, 2:00 meet-up. Walking starts at 2:15
WHERE: Meet on the grassy knoll at Burien Town Square Park, at SW 152nd and 5th Place SW.
DISTANCE: About 2.25 miles, round trip. Mostly flat. Sidewalks roundtrip.
