Lily and I did a 4k walk on 4th of July for the Seattle Humane Society! I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to start participating in activities like this now that I’ve lost weight and can move much better.
It feels really good!
The day started early at 6 am on a holiday where I could have slept in, but instead decided to help out the local animal shelter raise money.
Check-in was at 7:30 am so Lily and I got checked in, got the shirt and goodies, and then went around to the vendor booths until the jog/walk started at 9 am.
Loved this cute pit bull with angel wings. Such a sweet girl she was and she gave wet kisses!!!!
It was such a great turnout, lots of volunteers and participants.
At 9 am we got started and it took about an hour to get from start to finish with all the crowd in full swing with our dogs parking and ready to go too. I think the dogs could feel the excitement in the air and they were ready to go when the buzzer sounded to take off.
Lily dressed up in her red/white/and blue dress in holiday spirit!
I really can’t wait until I’m down to my goal weight so I can become even more active in these types of events. I really love cycling and now I can pull Lily in our bicycle trailer.
What activities are easier for you know that you’ve lost weight?
