Almost. I'll be out on the fire line with crews, so I need most of the same wildland fire certifications, but I'm just working as an EMT in case accidents happen.

Good for you! Sounds like a great experience.

Speed walking, I hear it’s all about the hip movement. Maybe it’s time to watch some speed walking on YouTube haha

It's best if you watch said videos at 5x speed or so :)

Also, sounds like an epic summer!

Hips don't lie! I'm definitely aware of their presence today. Next time I'll prep with some speed walking videos, sped up again of course!

World record for 20K race walking (women) is 1:24:38 which would be 21 minutes for 5K. This of course is on a race track and without the backpack but gives a hint of what´s possible.

Holy cow, that’s a fast walk!

That music video was an amazingly large portion of my high school Spanish 1 class. I didn’t learn much from that class.
