Heart Walk L.A.
I got my ass kicked at the Heart Walk in Los Angeles. Well, not really. It was right after I got to the top of the rock climbing wall on the hardest level that I felt like I got a really good work out. Man, I need to work out my arms more. I was always good at climbing, but haven't climbed anything in years. Those rock climbers who climb to the top of really high peaks must be really strong. I also need to lose some weight, because my arms were shaking when I tried to lift myself up to the next grip I could reach. And I really needed to reach far.
Anyway, the Heart Walk was pretty fun. Pat Harvey, a news anchor, from KTLA Channel 9 News was there to kick off the event.
I also got a lot of goodies. I got so much, that my fingers started hurting because the bag was so heavy. Maybe that's why I had a hard time climbing the rock wall. Yeah, that's it. It was the heavy bags full of goodies.
It was really nice doing the 5K walk through Exposition Park and the Rose Garden. Next time, I'm going to run it and see how many laps I can do before the last person finishes.
