This Saturday we attended our first Volksmarch in North Carolina. A Volksmarch is an organized walk with local walking clubs. We are members of the “Triangle Trailblazers”! Denni and I (and some of the cousins) used to participate in Volksmarches with my grandparents in Maryland, so this was something special to me. Most of the walks are mapped out through scenic or historic towns. Our walk was through a beautiful neighborhood in Cary, NC, Preston Wood. It’s a neighborhood with a few golf courses and some million dollar homes. We chose the 5K walk since we had the kids with us (there is also a 10K option) and we weren’t quite sure how they would take all of the walking. It turned out to be a beautiful sunny day. We all had a great time (except Dave who had to carry Kyle on his shoulders for a mile or so). It was nice to do something like this with my family and think about all of the times Nana and PapPap took us with them – wonderful memories that I will never forget!
Hope y’all had a great weekend!
