Guess what Brenda and I did this morning?

Nope we didn’t walk, we’ve already did 15.30 miles this week so today we are taking off. Tomorrow, if it’s not raining, we’ll go play some tennis and go for a stroll around Deerwood.

Anyways, See!!! We just signed up for a 5K competition walk.

Comp walk

It’s exciting. We paid the fees today so got in on the early registration and we’ll get this cool T-shirt to boot. YEAH!!!

5K is just a bit over 3 miles and Brenda and I already walk 4 miles each time we go out plus we don’t walk at a stroll so thought we’d give the competition part a try. We don’t have to shoot for first, just to finish and have fun at the same time.

So next Saturday at 6:00 sharp, we’ll be hopping out of bed and heading to town to register and get started on our very first competition walk. Wish us lucky!!

Monday I’ll weigh in and measure and see what surprises are in store. There’s only 98 days after today till the end of 2010. Hey by the way, did you stop at Steve's, Hot 100? There’s still 6 more days to sign up for this great challenge. I did and wrote this about my goals...

So now, have a great and blessed Friday, a terrific, relaxing and rejuvenating weekend. Take care my friends.

Excellent on the 5K! My kids are doing a 5K that day too. My brother and a bunch of our friends are doing the 10K that day and my little one is doing the 1K. Should be fun!

You'll have to let us know how your 5K goes! Good for you!

You are going to love doing a 5k. I let a lot of years go by when I wanted to do one but thought I was too fat - and I was a lot skinnier then. I have done several in the last couple of years and people are so nice and supportive. I came in last on the last one I did, but I don't care - I was glad I did it! And I got just as many cheers as the winner.

Hugs,
Mary

I love walking/running in competitions but I never do it to actually compete--just to motivate myself to keep active. This will be so much fun--enjoy yourself and good luck!

The walking 5k sounds great! If you haven't done anything like before you'll be surprised at the sense of camaraderie and accomplishment you can leave with. Have a blast! And remember, it isn't about finishing first, it's about finishing, which it sounds like you'll have no problem doing.

Have a wonderful week!
