Try Something New

Walk it off, sister!

I did something new yesterday. I went on a small hike to the petroglyphs outside of Rock Springs, WY. You can read the full story, with 19 pics, on my regular blog at It was a slow pace with little kids, and I probably didn't burn that many calories, but it was fun, and it got me thinking. I could shoot for a serious backpacking adventure sometime next summer, maybe Yellowstone Park. I've always wanted to visit there, and it's kind of lame that I've never been there, although I've managed to live in Wyoming for about 9 years of my life, about 5 years in college, and about 4 years now in Rock Springs. It would be a great goal to set.

I'm also attempting something new in the morning. I'm in town with my sister, maybe some of you know her, Sue? Ha, ha. Cokeville is celebrating its Centennial, and we came down to watch Lily in the junior rodeo. There is a 5K run in the morning, and I'm going to attempt it with Sue. Now, I will probably walk it more than I run it, but it feels like a good challenge to me. More tomorrow! Wish me luck!


  1. Those are two really great challenges, I'm sure you can and will accomplish them both. You're looking great Becky, just keep moving along and soon you'll be running those 5 Ks with your sister.

    My exercise program this week has been chasing after three granddaughters. I don't think I've burned many calories but it sure has been fun.

  2. Way to go Becky! Check out my running post. It has a link of suggestions on how to work yourself up to a 5K run. You are awesome. Keep up the great work and let us all know how it goes.

  3. Becky, walking or running a 5K is great exercise. Aren't sisters great motivators?! Have fun with each other; this is the first of many more.
