walking the 5kPosted: May 26, 2014
Terry and I walked the Mushroom Mardi Gras 5k on Saturday. This was no small matter.
Saturday is my one day for sleeping in. And I really love taking advantage of this time. To get to the race location, get parked, and get registered for the 8:05 start (the 10k began at 8:00), we had to get out of bed at 6:15. On a Saturday.
But we had both registered in advance and paid our money. We had both been training, and I had done two walks in excess of 5k over the past month. So we did it. We were near the end of the pack, but that was fine. It was a nice walk along a pleasant trail, and we enjoyed it.
There is something rewarding about making a commitment and following through.
