I was up bright and early this morning just like I have been for the past few months. I needed to get ready to walk, walk, walk. Except this time I did it a bit different and walked with my fellow Avon Walk peeps at the Mock Walk.
Around mile 6 I ran into a few other walkers and started chatting with them. It made the last few miles just fly by. It hit me then how much fun and how much easier it will be when my Dad is walking with me. My teammate is a vital component of me being successful in this event!
The Mock Walk was a success. Although the event isn’t a race IF it was and IF there were 100 people participating, I came in 20th today. Of course it isn’t a race, but it can’t ever hurt to be a little competitive, right?
The weather was great and it was good to get a sneak peak at the route. I even managed to win a gift certificate to Boston Running Co. A pretty good trade-off for waking up so early, huh?
