You rock! Congratulations Girl! I remember my first number for a race, it stayed on my wall for quite a while. Time to get some new race numbers I think....

I would love to do a shorter walk like a 5k (I doubt I could finish anything longer!). But they always seem to be in the hotter weather here & I can't take the heat! But I will start looking for them, there has to be something I can walk in during the Fall/Winter.

Just wanted to say, Happy New Year!!
