A few winters ago, I got the idea to start a weekly walking group that would cover approximately 3 miles through the skyways of Saint Paul. Tomorrow, I’m starting the group back up again!
If you live in the Saint Paul area, meet us at 10:00 a.m. sharp in the ground floor lobby near the elevators of the Robert Street parking ramp, located at the corner of 7th and Robert Streets in downtown Saint Paul. Note that the ramp is closed on weekends, but street parking is free on Sundays and there should be plenty of parking in the area (check 9th Street, on the north end of the parking ramp).
We’ll walk briskly for about an hour, covering pretty much every inch of Saint Paul’s skyway system in order to try to achieve 5K status.
Highlights will include a lap through the beautifully renovated Union Depot train station, a trip through the tunnel that lies beneath Rice Park, a mini tour of the River Center and Xcel Energy Center, and of course, great conversation with your fellow walkers.
No need to RSVP, just show up on time with your walking shoes laced up and ready to go!
