So I know what you're thinking: "Um, Sweetie, do you know how far 5K is?" and "Have you looked in the mirror lately? You're old. And round." Don't worry. I've got a plan!
- First of all, we're walking it. My cool new app says that we average 18 minutes a mile. If we can keep up that rate we'll do it under an hour -- but we're shooting for 45 minutes.
- 5K is 3.1 miles. The walking path at Ed Austin Park (one of our favorite places) is 1.75 miles. If we can walk around it twice without dying then we're good to go!
- I joined Pets Move, an on-line community dedicated to helping people and their pets get/stay healthy and fit while having fun together. I'm picking up tips and recording our daily activity. We earn "paw points" for our efforts, and paw points can earn us prizes. We like prizes!
P.S. This is a blog hop. Take a look around and see how other dogs are getting their exercise!
