Tonight I walked in a community walk. We have a new loop to our walking trails and our trails are working on meeting other trails and one day Minnesota will have a walking/hiking/biking trail that leads just about everywhere you’d like to go.
I had a great time, one of my daycare families joined me so we walked together. Rachel, Abby and their mama, Becky.
For the first time in at least 6 days it wasn’t raining and chilly. It finally warmed up and the sun came out.
Ready, set, GO!!!
There were about 150 participants and a few of them had their pups walking with them too. Wilbur is wonderful on the leash, Scout….well she’ll learn.
All done. The walk was about 2.5 miles. It took us about 40 minutes but I’m not exactly sure because I forgot to use my itouch and tracker.
I always have my own personal cheering section. Mike came and cheered us on and took pictures for us. And the ones in the middle of the race I just used my cell phone.
All in all it was a great community event and I am so glad I went.
On the way home Mike and I were talking and we talked about even one year ago I wouldn’t of done this. I had just really gotten into my walking and enjoying it but still had lots of body to fight and there was no way I would been out there with others. It now feels wonderful to be able to do these things.
If your community has anything like this happening, give it a try…you’ll be glad you did!!!
Take care my friends and have a blessed night sleep.
