My first 5k "walk"........

Saturday me and my work friends went to Payson and participated in the "Pay It Forward 5k/1 mile Challenge".

Left to right: Teresa, Kamele, Britany, Shelby and Dianne.

I am the odd man out because they are all related.

Teresa and Dianne are sisters. Teresa is Britany and Shelby's mom and Dianne is Kamele's mom.

I work with Teresa, Britany and Kamele.

Teresa and I before it started.

Me and Kamele after it ended and still having a great time. Teresa and the girls ran most of the first mile. They finished in 45 minutes. Dianne ran the first little bit and then I caught up with her and we fast walked the rest. I'm not a runner......even if I weighed 100lbs and was in great shape I won't be a runner. I have bad ankles and knees but I walked it and I'm proud of that. Dianne and I finished in 55 minutes. We where very proud to have finished our first 5k in under an hour. That makes for a under 20 minute mile. It was a lot of fun. We are doing one together again in May.

I can't wait!

Awesome Alice! I think I got an invite to this but I didn't even really look into it. Looks like fun, I hate when it's all competitive. I've only done one 5K and I haven't been in a hurry to do another one. But this one looks like fun.
