My first ever 5K competitive walk, not my last either. We had a blast, worked hard, played hard and enjoy every single second. Didn’t come in first, didn’t come in last. Did exactly what we wanted to do, complete the race. So without anymore words, our day!!
First thing getting there and our numbers. Wilbur couldn’t compete with us in the competitive walk but we could walk in the fitness walk so he went with Kory, one of my Venture Scouts.
Wilbur and Kory
Walking, about 1/2 point.
We did it. We finished in 48 minutes.
Can you say proud. We did it, we did something we set out to do.
Wilbur and his Aitkin Fit City, First Annual ribbon
Mike came and cheered us on, took pictures and was there from minute one to the end. He was our personal support and he was wonderful. Thank you Mike for all your support!!
In front of us, behind us and around us..
The finish line. Yucky picture but we are finishing. And Wilbur’s too.
Opening Ceremonies and the crowd.
Brenda won $10.00 in Aitkin bucks just for being there. Mike and Brenda.
Last but not least, 99 year old Ester, the oldest competitor.
So what do you think? I think it couldn’t of been a better day to get out and be part of something so wonderful and so fulfilling.
Now it’s onward and upwards to the next competition. It will be 3 mile Cross Country Skiing sometime this winter. Mike and I will be doing this one together. You know how much we love Cross Country Skiing. YEAH!!! Something else to train for and keep going. Getting fit and learning all kinds of new things has defiantly been my challenge this year but I’m learning and working at it. To bad I waited until I was almost 50 but better now then later or to late.
Take care and have a blessed Sunday. Jim and I are heading out for the morning, Mike is going pumpkin shooting in the afternoon. The rest of the day will be up in the air but it’s suppose to be beautiful so I’ll take it and enjoy.
