If One is Good...

Wednesday, July 01, 2020

I signed up for a 5K to benefit our local therapeutic riding program called MaconTracs (I live in Macon county, it's a right proper play on words, lol). The race was supposed to be in April, but was cancelled, of course. Which turned out to be beneficial for me because I hadn't trained at all ;-).

The race is now in November, and I've started training just by walking every day. I hope to graduate to a walk/job combo as I get my joints used to asphalt. I hike a bit, but other than building thigh muscles, it really doesn't do much for running, so this is a bit different.

It got me interested in doing more, so I signed up for the Gourdy 5K Pumpkin Run--they have a virtual option. The swag gets sent to my doorstep and I have from September 1 to November 22 to get it done. I think this'll motivate me to my steps/exercise in!

Here's the link for the Gourdy's:
