It's Saturday morning at 7:30 am and the following conversation truly took place...
JOHN: Hey, do you want to run a 5K with me this morning at Wheeler Farm?
ALICIA: Sure, what time does it start?
ALICIA: We're going to have to hurry to make it in time and register. What's the race for?
JOHN: Some diabetes walk/run I told Dave I'd support him in.
We arrive and find out the event doesn't start until 9:30 am and you have to donate at least $100 per person for each shirt. (Notice I am not wearing THE shirt, but we did donate generously.)
ALICIA: Hey John, I'm not seeing anyone in running clothes. Are you sure it's a 5K?
JOHN: Well, I think it's more of a walk-a-thon.
We see one of John's BYU roommates, Doug Cooper, who is volunteering and make our way over to him to get the real scoop...
JOHN: (to Doug) Hey Dog, (that's what they all call each other, I didn't just forget to insert a "u") do you know anything about this run today?
DOUG: (DOG): Yeah, we did the walk-a-thon last year and it's about a mile around Wheeler Farm and everybody walks it.
ALICIA: Come on Cooper, let's go "walk" our mile for diabetes!
Believe it or not, we lost John on the route and he actually had to run the last half of route to catch up!
