I haven’t done a 5k in a very long time and with the pandemic I didn’t think there would be any anytime soon. Then I heard that some people from work were doing a virtual 5k.
In my head this meant walking in front of your computer for three miles, but that’s not the only way. You just have to walk or run 3 miles or 7,000 steps in a treadmill, around your house or wherever and keep track of it on whatever app you want that measure time and distance.
The great part about this it doesn’t have to be done in one day, you have 10 days to do it. As long as you finish the seven miles by the tenth day, you’re good. And also post a picture on social m showing the distance you walked.
So I signed up today and will be doing the 5k socially distant with 5 other people from work in about 3 weeks. I want to finish the whole thing in one day but don’t know how fast I will be able to finish it. If we’re starting early in the morning so I hope we’re done by lunch.
This virtual 5k is already giving me more motivation to keep exercising at home so I don’t get left behind.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
