  • How/where do you post your results?

  • My buddy Chewbacca is short, and I’m not a spring chicken but this will be our first and it will be great. We can’t run but we do like the walks in the morning.

  • I love the fact that my daughter and I can do these together! Pluto is one of her favorite Disney characters, so I knew she would be excited for this Virtual Run series. We’ll even take our pooch on one of the walks with us!
