non-compete agreement

Non-compete agreement signed at beginning of five year employment. No special compensation or training given in return for signing. Took new job one year ago, former company verbally promised to not pursue agreement despite new employer fitting description of violation (friendly vendor). They have recently accused me of violating the agreement. Want to know if the agreement is ''reasonable'' or enforceable should they decide to pursue the matter now or in the future. Terms of the agreement: 3 year duration. Single state restriction (WA). Scope covers direct competition, contacting customers, working for vendors (my current situation), and any field they deal in now or have plans to deal with in the future.
