Vern’s No Frills 5k

I’m going to start driving 13 miles every third Saturday of the month starting on the 16th.  The Vern’s No Frills 5k runs every month… cost, $1 for adults, free for K-12.  I’m going to try to get DD to run with me so she can get more comfortable competing and completing 3 miles
I opted for not running this morning because it is grass cutting day and we are going to walk to Wal-Mart and that is enough for today… going to try to con my way into adding a little extra to the Wal-Mart walk to try to avoid the highway and cut through the park.  That will up that particular walk to 8 miles… that is pretty much the target I’m after this weekend…
Post Walk
I talked bear into walking to Wal-Mart and walking the long way home.  It was a long walk (it ended up being just under 8 miles) but it felt great.  Sweaty… needed to have a LONG drink of water (despite water at Wal-Mart and in the park twice) and a bath.  I’ve managed the water… not the bath yet…
Now, I’m sitting, my feet ache just a little and I’m thinking that the bath is sounding better and better all the time.  I fixed the front door first, though… put on a new door knob assembly… now… that nice cool bath.


I was right… bath was heaven… warmer than it probably ought to have been, but it was wonderful.
