Cindy G - You will love it! I went last year, after only loosing about 15 pounds at the time, and I walked the 5k, first time in my life, at 64 1/2 years old, and walked with another gal about my age - we made it all the way, came in DEAD LAST and really had a great time!
You might ask if there is anyone coming from your area, last year several of the people from up North carpooled. I don't know if there is anyone planning to come from my direction, Shelton, or even Olympia?
Are we wearing our green SparkPeople shirts again?
A couple hours at least. Did it last year and made a day of it. Want to do it this year too, but I may have to register the day of. It all depends on how I am feeling as I will have walked 60 miles the weekend before.
About The Event Get a little wild with your exercise routine at Northwest Trek courtesy of St. Joseph's Heart and Vascular Center and 100.7 The Wolf radio.
Just imagine running or walking under a forest canopy away from barking dogs, speeding cars and concrete canyons. Be encouraged by more than 50 cheerleaders along the way and turn in a great time on our USA Track & Field 5K certified course or take the long way around for an 8K run.
Runners will be chip timed. Walkers can enjoy a 5K course (untimed).
