How can I connect with others who are interested in walking?

The first place to look for someone to walk with will be within your place of work.  All of your co-workers should be focused on their fitness and by sending out a mass e-mail, you may find that many are interested and have been trying to find someone as well. 

If you would prefer to avoid exercising with your co-workers then go to a YMCA or your local recreation center.  Facilities such as these may have walking clubs or may have listings for people who are looking for workout buddies.  Finding a new workout buddy will help keep you motivated and help push you to the next level.
