10k, here I come!!!

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

So when I said "where I'm going" in the last blog title, this wasn't exactly what I meant! lol

This is the Riverwalk, where we like to go because it's so pretty and its gravel, so it's not so hard on the legs. Well, it snakes through Ft. Riley. We never thought anything of it. Last time we were there, that sign was NOT there! lol They put a new fork in the path, but we continued on up the regular way (to the pot field lol) and about a 100 yards up, there was an even bigger sign saying unexploded ordinance, restricted, authorized personnel only. lol I should have taken a pic of that sign too. :P

BTW, am I the only one that noticed the military doesn't know how to spell Ordinance? lol

Anyway, we did a 5.04 mile walk!!!! That's right! 5 miles! I SO have this 10k! It's so real to me now, I can almost taste it! I could have gone further today, but my walking partner was hurting, so we called it a day. It was great though. I'm so excited!

Gotta eat now. Have a great day everyone!

    Hi Amy! Congrats on the mileage! Way to go! Too funny about ORDNANCE (missing I). I once was a word processor so typos are my "thing." I also have a Sparkfriend, Lovestypos! Keep up the good work! Thanks for commenting on my Sparkpage! emoticon emoticon

    Good job on the five miles, Amy! That is awesome. :) When is the 10K you are doing? I would love it we had a gravel-like surface near us. I have been doing the C25K program and running on concrete is killer some days!

    Glad you made it through your five miles without any explosions. :) Have a great day! emoticon

    Actually, ordinance is spelled correctly. Ordinance is military munitions, ordinance is a law. Confusing and silly, like a lot of English words and grammar, but true and correct. :)

    I read your sign and my eyes were wide and then I saw the phone number and thought well that is somewhere around here. I am in Kansas City so nice to have a sparker close by. Well, you are doing awesome! Keep up the great work! Oh btw, yes ordinance spelled wrong got to me too, but I am obnoxious about spelling so it's nice to see someone else who notices the little things as well! emoticon
