I got up this a/m at 04:30 check my b/g level and it was 124. I then went on my regular walk of four miles. Check my b/g level at 09:00 and my b/g level was 128. I have not taken my meds nor have not eaten breakfast.
My question is this a good reading? Should I take my meds before I go walking?

Congratulations Bluegill on doing the 4 miles!

regarding your BG reading, while it is not ideal, I would not be really dissatisfied with it. I am sure there are those here who would kill to have a BG level like that.

Regarding your question about taking meds:

It would have been useful to know your BG level was prior to your exercise. I could only make a guess as to what is going on, but since you had a rise in BG following your 4:30 am check, You may have had a liver dump in the meantime, which you subsequently worked off, at least partially when you walked. But that is merely a W.A.G. (a wild a. guess)
