The Royal Road Race is on the count down. Walking woman has been participating in Walking Core and Endurance classes at the Sportplex in Regina. While in the class my time has improved. Because the weather has improved, I have been walking around Wascana Lake. Now on most days my time is also improved from last year. When I cross the finish line from my 5 km walk, I will know how I did.
There isn’t a prize for walkers. I have been under the misunderstanding that prizes were given out for the top walker in each age group, however, Ted Jaleta told me that there aren’t enough marshals on the track to make sure that walkers only walk, and not run, too. This is understandable, therefore, I am doing it for my benefit. This will be my 4th year and it is the race’s 4th year. I was there at the beginning.
So on May 9, 2015 at 9 a.m. I will be part of the crowd at the start line, but it thins out along the path, in my timed category. But it is fun to be part of 500 people who are out on a wonderful day, being healthy, raising money and being part of a community.
