Walk Description: Didn’t you always love having a casual easy-goin’ Sunday morning that included a good old fashioned diner? We’re going to recreate the Sunday stroll with a 4-mile mosey circling through the 5 parks of Glendale, and finishing with a great Sunday brunch at Caitlin’s Diner. Of course the brunch is optional – but I know I’LL always be there! All doggies are welcome – even at Caitlin’s! Yes, doggie’s are welcome on their deck so they’ve welcomed our furry friends. This walk will also be baby stroller friendly. This walk is relaxed, casual, and fun as we explore the parks, pathways – even pancakes — of Glendale!
Walking Movement Leader: Award Winning Author of 3MPH: Adventures of One Woman’s Walk Around the World, Polly Letofsky!

Schedule & Meeting Location: We will meet at 7:30 am just inside or in front of Caitlin’s Diner and we’ll talk through Walk2Connect goals, answer any questions and lightly warm up. If you are going to get coffee or use the restroom please plan to show up well before 7:30AM as we will leave NO LATER than 7:35 am. We should be done walking no later than 9:30am and sit down for brunch if you’d like to join us. You can of course leave early if you need to!
Caitlin’s Address: 4379 E. Mississippi Ave, Glendale, CO 80246 (On Mississippi just 2 blocks east of Colorado Blvd.)
-There will be plenty of parking in the Caitlin’s parking lot.
-This walk is super duper duper doggie friendly! We will be doing a loop going back to our starting location. (Please be sure you are confident your dog can handle 3-4 miles and cooler temps when walking in fall and winter and insure that your dog is calm, well behaved and MUST stay leashed. Please be sure to bring baggies.)
-Until summer officially begins we won’t be passing any restroom, so be sure to use the restroom before you leave home OR before the walk at Caitlin’s.
-Consider Bringing: Comfortable socks & shoes (pref. non-cotton socks), light backpack with water and snack foods (almonds, bars, fruit), gloves, scarf, beanie, camera, sunglasses & sunscreen (and hat if you wear them), and bring many (thinner) layers depending on anticipated temperature and light rain gear just in case.
-Cancellation Policy: We only cancel in extreme weather conditions on our path, such as ice, hail, or lightening. Check Meetup or text the walk leader for the most up-to-date conditions.
