Women walking together bridge our communities step by step.
WomenWalking began as a seed. It was an idea that took root and has grown to shape my life, as a mentor, friend and role model for who I want to be. As a single mom, my high school age kids and I had moved to a town in Connecticut where we didn’t know anyone. Working full time, getting home tired, parenting my kids, I was desperate for peer companionship. I was lonely. So, what’s a shy girl to do? Throw open the door and take a walk!
Having been a mediator (an incredible process where people receive neutral support in resolving an argument and deciding their own outcome), I was witness to that miracle of moment when two people who are pissed at each other “get” what the other is saying. It’s life changing.
While out walking alone, I would see women walking in pairs, talking and having fun. I suddenly knew that women are natural walkers and talkers; we can talk, not talk, be company on walks for support. I knew I wanted this for myself. Walking side by side in a non-confrontational position makes listening to what the other is saying a spontaneous response. Our similarities get unearthed while in movement outside!
WomenWalking is the “get outside to walk” movement of women who want to walk with one walking partner.
We are committed to the belief that walking is a fun and simple to do exercise. Enjoying the outdoors with a companion brings good energy to ourselves, our families and our communities.
We are a small company who believes many of life’s challenges and stresses can be reduced, re-framed and re-imagined when women take a walk together.
We are dedicated to a world nourished by cohesive communities that are enriched by exercise, communication and health.
Women connect with other members and meet in person for walks. Whether around town or when traveling, broaden your network of women and enjoy a deeper sense of connection with your communities.
Walking is relaxing, stress relieving and terrific to do with a friend. We have busy lives; managing home, families, jobs, relationships, education and any daily challenges that may arise. Too often the importance of our own enjoyment, health and well-being gets put aside.
You can change that right here, right now.Take your first step.
