I’m “running” a 5k. I say it that way because I’m going to be both running and walking. It’s not a big official race so it’s ok if some walking is involved. It’s a fundraiser for my place of employment. I am doing this because I want to challenge myself to get it done in 36 minutes and to qualify for a walking wellness program. The walking program is a challenge to get 900,000 steps in 90 days. 10,000 a day. I’m really thinking it will be easy considering I get at least 7,000 at work everyday, plus I walk to my bus stop and walk up the long driveway and can walk an extra mile on my lunch break if need be or skip one leg of my bus route walking to the transit station, 1.4 miles. I’ve had days before where I logged 20,000 steps, working out before work. Whoever makes the goal gets some pto and gets to keep the fitbit that tracks your steps.
I got this.
