The Race against Racism--5K walk

Saturday, April 24, 2010



PedalPusher (Linda) picked me up around 8 am this morning, and off we went to City Island for the 5K. Got there by 8:40, parked, checked in and took our goodies back the car.

They did a group warm up, which was a line dance, and everyone was getting into it. Then we were off. One lap around City Island, then cross the bridge to Riverside park, walked down Front street, then headed down to the walkway right beside the river. Then back across the bridge to the finish line. We could not have asked for a better day for this walk. It was just a little chilly, but perfect walking weather. We crossed the finish line in just under 41 min.

When we got there, we ran into someone I knew, so we stood talking to them for a while. My shirt helped break the ice, I was wearing my Spark t-shirt. And Linda and I told them that is how we met, and that we meet monthly for breakfast and a walk. Some of them had heard about the site, and are using it, some of them never heard of it before. I had some of the business cards along, and I was able to give one out! Woohoo!!!

After the walk, there was some amazing food, we sampled a little of everything! They also had some entertainment, one group sang, and there were 2 groups that danced. Very entertaining.

Linda and I will be doing another 5K in June for the Children's Miracle Network! Can't wait!

    I had SUCH a great time! I will be curious for next years......see what became of our input to Cheryl. We will have to incorporate the jogging intervals into our walks.....good way to build endurance.
