Back in the spring I set a couple of “wouldn’t it be nice to do that sometime” kind of goals for myself, one of which was to enter the Tely10, St. John’s biggest and most famous road race. Not that I intended to race, as such; I’m a walker, not a runner. But lots of people walk the Tely 10, so I figured I’d be in good company.
I was originally going to do it with a friend who had to abandon the plan because of knee problems. So, Jason volunteered to be my walking buddy, which was a great choice since he was hilarious and kept me laughing all the way along.
