Yep, I walked it. I really did plan on running but someone (read: me) had too much fun at the Sounders game the night before (despite their 2-1 loss) and didn't feel 100% Sunday morning. Luckily, a coffee and a brisk 5k walk was just what I needed to feel normal again. The walk was insanely crowded and I was immediately surprised by the fact that people really just leisurely walk 5k's...I figured they would at least try to power walk them. My neighbor, Lindsey, and her friend Alexa and I walked together and tried to dart around groups when we could to at least walk fast enough to keep warm.

I think we finished in around an hour and it was so weird to walk across a finish line, pretty sure I've never done that before. I'm glad I didn't end up running because the people in our group who did run didn't start with the runners and ended up having to dodge 100's of walkers for the whole course.

After slacking and not running this race I realized I really need to turn on my running game if I'm going to run a half marathon on December 2nd.
Question: Anyone ever walk an entire race before?
