Despite a fever, sore throat, sneezing, coughing, and stuffed sinus cavities, I felt reasonably motivated to take up Hilary’s challenge to participate in the May 31st West Seattle 5K Run/Walk. Hilary, my manager John’s boss, is training to run the event whilst I shall be walking it to make sure me and my back come out intact.¬†

They even have a 6-week training guide but with only 5 weeks until the event, I need to make up for lost time!

With the weather improving and 6 AM now sporting more light than dark, walking around Ames Lake where I live will be easy for me.

Between my chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Jamie.¬†stretching therapy with Jill, and my Isha yoga practice, I should be in fine shape to get back into my racing saddle once again. It has been almost a decade since I last attended a walking or running event so here’s to fun training and a great 5K walk.

Now, back to my potions to clearing up this unwanted cold.
