It's all about goal setting

There’s the triathlon, and then there’s the mini-triathlon. The marathon, and the half marathon. There’s even a walking half marathon that a friend of mine has done a couple of times. Then there’s the 10K, followed by the 5K, which is essentially a half 10K. I’ve known people who have done all of the above. Multiple times. And even though I’ve managed to squeak out a couple of 10K’s in the last few years, I really hate running. So today when I tried to muster up a few miles around the neighborhood I wondered, why is there no such thing as a walking half 5K? I’m here to say that I think it’s about time we make room for the little people.
A walking half 5K.
I think I could be really good at that.

I'm glad to see your sense of compassion for the little people. Warms the heart, really.

Wanna be on my team for the walking half 5K RELAY??
Now we're talking!

randi: You know me, I'm all about the compassion. And I never thought about a relay team! That's a fantastic idea! Although I would hate to see you lower your standards to my level Miss Marathoner.

A RELAY, walking, half 5K, sounds perfect! We still get the free massage at the end right? Oh, and the t-shirt "Underachievers Relay 2007: For those who find real challenges a BIT too much."

How about a t-shirt that said I walked up and down the stairs a million times today.
