One of the great things about losing weight is my energy level. In the past I would have never considered a 10K for charity or not. It wouldn't have been possible for my body. I sponsor a club at the high school where I teach that is all about community service and volunteerism. We have done many different charity events but never one that involves walking 6.2 miles.
It makes me so happy to know that I can walk a 10K and support a great charity at the same time. I love having the energy and confidence to do a lengthy walk.
However, that means I will need to start increasing my mileage on my daily walks. Right now I walk around 4 miles per day. I do want to make good time on the 10K, so I will try to build up to 6 miles a day during October.
