5K in Three Days



What a time for Mother Nature to lose her cool… or keep her cool.

For the previous two weeks, walking has been awesome. Fifty-seven degrees (plus) and all is well. Spring seemed to have decided to appear almost a month early.

But, NO!

For the last week, the temperature has been at freezing or below. And this last weekend… TEN INCHES of snow!

Reasons to Do a 5K when the Temperature Is in the Thirties:

  • Yes, I want to continue walking.
  • Yes, it would be a great way to meet new people now that the nest is empty.
  • Yes, I know it is good for my health.
  • Yes, I do sleep great each night after two or miles are logged.
  • Yes, I know it is a great way to relieve stress.
  • Yes, being one with nature is a plus!

More Sane Reasons:

  • Yes, I want to continue walking. I have a true desire to walk. I have nothing to prove by freezing off my behind.
  • Yes, it would be a great way to meet new people now that the nest is empty. Personally, I prefer an empty nest with a fireplace!
  • Yes, I know it is good for my health. Catching pneumonia is not healthy.
  • Yes, I do sleep great each night after two or miles are logged. I would need several quilts to warm my frozen old bones.
  • Yes, I know it is a great way to relieve stress. Should I shake from stress or shake from a low-core body temperature…DuH!
  • Yes, being one with nature is a plus! Winter looks better on a Christmas card!

What I Plan to Do: Follow My Instincts! 

The temperature is supposed to return to more humane conditions by noon on Saturday. I think that I will sign-in for my packet… Give thanks to the brave sponsors… And walk my 5K after the sun warms the world.

Yes, my instincts tell me that this sounds like a grand plan!



Written for The Daily Post: InstinctI have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My topics for the month of March are as follows:  (Monday) Teaching and Life; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.
