That is a list of things! How much time do you have to complete it? I kinda sorta ran a 5K in May. Walked most, Would be talking to friend etc... walking along, notice the rest of the group was wayyy up there, run and catch up! This happened several times LOL Finished in 50 minutes. I have my gardens all going, along with dill,parsley,oregano,chives. Now it is up to mother nature to help them along lol
