Annual "Walk Against Gun Violence" walk/run today
Sunday, May 16, 2010
We have a local walk each year, sponsored by a husband and wife who lost a son to a random shooting - the man was an attorney and is now a judge, so DH knows him; and the woman works at a store I frequent, so we've gotten friendly.
So DH and I do this walk each year.
Well, in actuality - we sign up for the race each year. I usually walk the whole thing. DH usually stops to play pinball, and then meets me on the return walk.
Although the first year we did the walk, it was extra hot - we stopped for drinks, then we stopped for restrooms - then we cut the walk short and walked back. At the finish line, I ran ahead (about 10 steps) to cross before DH. Turned out they counted me as a 2nd or 3rd place winner in my age group, LOL! (I refused the mini-trophy, since I knew we had cut the walk short.)
I think this year, we should aim for LAST in, LOL - just to see what award they give for that!
