I signed up to participate in an Earth Day 5k with a friend. I really waffled on whether I was going to go or not since I really wasn't able to train for it at all. We had agreed to walk the race and I was glad. It turned out to be a perfect spring morning and we walked the race. S-l-o-w.
We walked and chatted and literally everyone else participating passed us. Old people, a really pregnant woman, a couple with a stroller, and an eight-year-old girl passed us. I did not care. No matter how slow we walked, we were still faster than everyone on the couch. I did find it unnecessary when the winner passed us twice. According to the official statistics, I came in second to last (by one second) so my slowest pace still stands. It was my first race since before I got pregnant with Babyface and I felt good when it was over.
