My Wife did something this morning she hasn’t done in many, many years, since she lived in Denver. She did a 5K walk. She can’t run due to her knees, but she walks at about 15-16 minute/mile at 5K length, which isn’t bad. Here is a photo of her by the route map just after the event:
Since we got to Portland she has been lamenting not walking enough, though she goes to a fitness club, 24 Hour Fitness, 3 or 4 days a week for treadmill, cardio, strength, etc. When we saw a small piece in our local Lake Oswego paper for the 36th Lake Run, I suggested she try it, and though she hesitated, she decided to give it a try. She was 3rd for her age group and had what she said was an okay starting-to-get-back-into-it time. I’m really proud of her!
