The Heart of Summer 5K was Saturday. We had 13 Nordic Walkers in the event, women who had participated in the Women on the Move summer training and celebrated with a successful 5K walk around Lake Nokomis. It was inspiring to train and to walk with these women. Over the 8 weeks they learned bunches about how to better take care of their hearts and their lives. They were enthusiastic and energized by their goal to do a 5K event. They worked hard, pushed themselves and stepped it up on Saturday to finish before the rain hit. The wind and impending storm only added to their excitement about their accomplishment!
Congratulations to all who walked or ran the Heart of Summer!
