This isn't a message board challenge. It is a personal challenge to anyone who says they can't. Take a few moments and read about my 1st 5K walk since 1995.

Yes, I'm boasting but for a purpose. On Saturday morning, Nov. 5, 2011, in a dense fog and chilly morning, I walked a 5k for the 1st time since 1995. My time was 54:16. I was the oldest participant. The next oldest was a man at 62 and a woman at 61.

Why is that significant? I have arthritis in both knees. Right now, I am waiting until Nov. 17 to get my next cartiledge injections. I have arthritis in my lumbar spine at the points where the sciatic nerves for both legs are. I cannot walk much on pavement, about 1/3 of the walk had to be done on the grass.

If I can do it with all my arthritis and at my young age of 65. Why can't you.
