A friend works for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, and today was their third annual 5K walk/run, which I fully intended to jog or speed-walk. But due to inclement weather, the "5K" part was revised and became "3 laps around the canal." Which ended up being shorter than my walk to the T stop.
I think I still get points for signing up for a 5K event, though! Believe it or not, that was the first "walking" event I've ever done that wasn't for either a specific piece of legislation, political protest, or political rally. It was just a fundraiser.
Of course, it was also for a good cause.... and I totally could have jogged the full 5K.
