Super What? ‘Walk-n-Talk’ your Way Around Gregory Heights this Sunday
WABI Burien’s February ‘Walk-n-Talk’ will take place this Sunday, Feb. 3 starting at 2 p.m., with a nice, non-commercial, non-Super Bowl related friendly group walk around the Gregory Height’s neighborhood.
“Feeling cooped up during winter’s dark, gray days of rainfall?” reads an announcement. “Get out for a walk! Have a nice chat with other local folks. Get some fresh air and chase the doldrums away (and if you have your pedometer, come see how many steps you can log toward your daily goal of 10,000).”
The forecast is for cloudy but DRY SKIES this Sunday, Feb. 3 (but raingear may be wise nonetheless).
This is a FREE event and is enjoyable for all ages (including little ones in strollers).
Here are the details:

Intentions for Burien’s Walk-n-Talk:
- “Encourage active living to support physical and mental health.” (Part of Burien’s “Vision”.)
- Initiate conversation between friends and neighbors, new and old.
And here’s a tip: We’re having a special, second walk in February on Saturday the 9th! WABI Burien is partnering with the Feet First Organization for the Seattle Stairways Walk. It, too, is a free event, but requires pre-registration and acceptance of their terms here.
