Running….and Walking

Just a quick check in as run through life, desperately trying to keep up with my sadly overbooked and bulging schedule this week!

Yes I have been eating great things and dutifully photographing them…but all reside in my camera still, not in the post.

Tonight is my first 5k run walk.  The big Mercedes Benz Corporate Run is going on tonight and we are participating.  Yes…most people will be running it but my family and I will be walking it!  At this time that is the best I can do.

FabHubs, FabStepson, and FabHeTeen (now that I have TWO teenagers their names have to grow along with them) will be walking with me!  FabSheteen will be at her dad’s so she will miss out (she probably doesn’t look at it that way though).

FabHubs could very easily run the whole thing and probably not break a sweat…but he is choosing to walk with me, even though I gave him the go ahead to run or even walk at his much faster pace than mine.

I know I will have not problem finishing it…I walk 3.5 miles all the time and 5k is equal to 3.1 miles. 

I have only two concerns...the major concern is the not one but TWO bridges along the way, the uphill portion (I am great with flats…the hills and stairs are what aggravate my muscle weakness) and secondly….I hope I don’t come in last!!!

Hoping to have great things to report tomorrow!!!

Congrats on doing the run. If it makes you feel any better, i walked a 10k last year. I was the ONLY walker but I did pass up one of the runners eventually. However, I was still reported last place - not sure how that happened unless the other girl did not finish (or cheated and took a shortcut) lol That is great that fabhubby and fabkids are along for the adventure!!!!!
