Virtual 5K

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Never thought I would be doing a blog entry on a 5K race, but here it is. After attending the TCOYD conference on Sept. 22, I logged back into SparkPeople the following Tuesday. In the middle of the spin wheel there was an ad for a Halloween Trick or Treat Virtual 5K race. After reading that you could walk or run I decided to take the plunge. Boy, have I been surprised with myself. I am now in the second week of the challenge and am feeling motivated and invigorated! I walk with my dog, Kira. The hardest part of the challenge for me is getting off the couch, into my coat, and out the door. Not too fond of cold weather. The walking is the easy part. Today the weather in Iowa is crisp. A cool 29 degrees at 7:45 am. but we still walked. Kira is stretched out on the couch resting - having a difficult time holding her eyes open. I decided to have a 2nd cup of coffee which is rare for me and write in my blog.

Roger is out of town this weekend volunteering at the Amanda the Panda grief camp. The camp is open to all ages - children to adult. It is a fantastic service offered free to all participants. Throughout the year, they hold weekly grief groups. The organization is entirely funded by donations and grants.

I had better get to work or I will not have time today to decorate for Halloween - my FAVORITE holiday.
