September 21-22, 2013 Hesperia Days Event in the High Desert


On Your Mark...

On Your Mark…


Hesperia Days kicked off this gorgeous cool morning with the 5K Run/Walk/Skate. You can’t beat this kind of weather for a morning workout. Amazing turnout!







The skaters got a head start with runners next and walkers following.












A terrific representation of families and people of all ages. It’s a great way to promote health and fitness and family fun in the High Desert. Look at the strollers. Even family dogs joined in on the fun. Gotta keep the pets fit, too.

And there they go!

And there they go!











Fit for a 5K!

Interested in training for a 5K run? Commit to a regular training program similar to what John and Karen have done, a husband and wife team (Karen, on the right in above photo and husband John in the middle, pose with their friend from St. Joseph Health, St. Mary in Apple Valley.) John and Karen commit to a regimen of cardio workouts, walking, running, and biking. They will participate in The Apple Valley Reverse Triathlon on September 28th.

    Do you know who the photographers were? I’m pretty sure they snapped a few shots of my 3 year old daughter doing the 5k but I haven’t found very many photos online.

    I don’t know who the main photographers were. However, you could check with the Hesperia Recreation and Park District (info below). Congratulations to your 3-year-old daughter for doing the 5K! I loved seeing all the families with children participating.
