Tomorrow, I am participating in the Tour of the Litchfield Hills event. There are a variety of options to participate. The big part of the event is the bike race. I decided to try the walking event. I chose the option with the most miles, that being 6.2 miles. It goes to a great cause too, as the money they raise goes to the Cancer Care Fund of Litchfield Hills. I was able to raise over $200 for my walk in addition to the entry fee.
Many of you probably remember the swelling I was dealing with a few months back with my knee. I’m happy to report that it has not swelled in a while and it seems to have recovered. I did a lot of physical therapy and I can'’t say enough good things about PT. The therapists get to the root of the problem and they know just what exercises to focus on for healing. I found out my hip flexors were week along with my hamstrings being extremely tight. They exercises to strengthen those areas has helped so much.
So this is my first “race” since my injury, and my first since the pandemic started. I’m looking forward to it as the weather is supposed to be perfect! This race will not be about speed but rather to just complete the walk. I get roughly 6 miles everyday anyway, spread out throughout the whole day.
Of course, I'll wear my vegan gear. I gotta promote the lifestyle, especially since plant based diets have been known to reverse many diseases. I always love to raise awareness.
