I hope everyone has had a wonderful last Saturday in September! There are so many festivals this weekend that I hope your biggest decision today was deciding which one to attend. I would’ve loved to head north to Kingwood for the Preston County Buckwheat Festival but alas, I was stuck inside painting my office. I did manage to soak in some sunshine at my local park though and guess what? I completed a 5K!
Okay, okay. So saying that I completed a 5K may be a little misleading — there was indeed an organized 5K event in Charleston this morning (hello ColorVibe!) and while it looked amazing, yours truly instead walked 3.1 miles at a family park. And it took me 45 minutes to do so. ….wow. But, I do love to walk and hike and maybe one day I will register for and complete an organized race. There’s the HallowEast Run Like Hell Zombie 5K Run coming to Charleston on October 26th so who knows — maybe I’ll sign up and get chased by zombies?
In the meantime, I will continue walking at my park and I want to know where YOUR favorite places are to walk in West Virginia. Do you have a favorite hiking trail or path along a river? Do you walk at your high school football track or does your town have a designated trail? Let me know!
Until next time,
