8.50 miles!!!

Monday, March 14, 2011

Well, my brother asked me to walk a 1/2 marathon with him in 1 month. I just told someone that I wasn't ready to do one for about a year. I am not sure if it was spontaneous or insanity!!! So, we decided to walk tonight and it took us 2 and a half hours but we completed 8.5 miles and averaged 19 mph. My feet feel like they are about to feel off. I think it is great way to celebrate my 1 year surgery anniversary. I was looking for something memorable and different and this will be it. It will be interesting doing it in Paso, where I grew up. 26 days to train!!!

  Wow fantastic!!! I am walking one in mid-June. I just completed my first training walk - 3 miles. And it was hard! I have a lot of walking to do! :-)
