Rachel joined a training group for runners and walkers and completed her first 5k.
Carol: How do you feel Rach?
Rachel: I feel fine
Carol: We did it didn’t we? Lots of training for that huh?
Carol: Did you like the walk club?
Carol: Nice people in it, huh?
Carol: We enjoyed making new friends and meeting some people from the community.
Peter: Rachel loves to walk, this was a really good activity for her.
Kayla: Rachel, I mean she was pushing it every single time. I guess you could call her a leader because I mean she was really consistent. And consistency in this program is very important because if someone sees you being consistent, they’ll do the same thing.
Courtney:Before this walking group….
Phil: We just sat on the couch and …
Courtney: And sat in bed and didn’t get up in the morning (laughing)
Phil:We always thought about exercising but we’d just always make excuses. Now we have to get out.
Courtney: We were inspired by Rachel who brought us together as a training group. She was there at every one of the training groups. She inspired me I know to be there.
Phil: We didn’t want to let the group down.
Courtney: We all seemed like we became instant best friends (laughter). I was just really, it was fun.
Peter: Do you want to do another one?
Peter: Oh come on Rachel (laughter)
Carol: We’ll do another one just not today, okay?
