The Week’s Walk Destination
Come “Walk ‘n’ Talk” together from Bernal Community Park to the Marilyn Kane Trail (with optional no-host brunch stop on the way back), this Saturday, February 16
Meet Mr. Pedometer at the easternmost end of the Bernal Community Park at 8:00 and/or 9:00 a.m. for an hour (or two) to “Walk ‘n’ Talk” together. Click here for a map. We meet next to the public restrooms by the baseball field (rather than at the more crowded area by the soccer fields).
We will walk west to the “secret” pond at the east end of the Marilyn Kane Trail. After enjoying the view (perhaps including ducks?), we will follow the scenic trail beneath the freeway and around to the dog park at the western end of the trail. We will pass a holding basin that probably has become another pond after the recent rains. (More duck-sighting?)
From there we will take the sidewalk beneath the freeway. Those who wish to can stop at the Corner Bakery for a no-host brunch before continuing the final 15 minutes of the loop back to where our cars are parked. (It’s the Year of the Pig, remember?) Senior discounts are available to those eligible who ask for them.
We will be walking on level, mostly paved pathways. As always, we encourage you to wear comfortable shoes and to dress in layers for the changing temperatures. We walk rain or shine…unless the rain is blowing sideways. (Bring an umbrella or wear a hooded parka!)

The best Valentine’s Day gift you can give those you care about (and who care about you) is to stay healthy. That’s why I always encourage you to…
EAT RIGHT, MOVE MORE, SLEEP WELL
You may be shocked (as I was) to read that nearly half the adults in the USA have some form of cardiovascular disease. The reason? Guidelines have changed for classifying high blood pressure.
At my recent physical exam, I was dismayed to be told that I have high blood pressure. How common is this condition?
