WALKING FOR A CAUSE...AND SOMETIMES JUST BECAUSE

Friday, June 4, 2010

WooHoo!

6-4-10

8 miles today.

Go ahead, pat me on the back. Or just make the motions because I's still really sweaty and actually patting my back would feel all gross.

I stopped for a break at 4.8 miles to use the facilities at McDonalds to to eat something....they don't seem to care if you bring your own food if you buy a drink there and they're not crowded...then put some Moleskin on the balls of both feet because they were getting kind of raw and sore, and took off again.

The Moleskin, BTW, it's awesome.

My goal today was 7 miles, but I hit that and was still a mile from home, and sitting on the ground to wait for someone to come get me didn't seem like a viable option, so I kept going. And it wasn't killing me, so that's a good sign.

If I had known today was National Donut day, though, I would have stopped at the donut shop instead of McD's...you know, to honor the day...

Congrats on 8 miles! I never realized how much training goes into preparing for the 3-day.

Yesterday, I saw a bumper sticker on a car ahead of me, and realize that I wear bifocals and have a hard time seeing distances. But I could swear the sticker said "feel the boobies". Would love to know what it really said!

McDonald's does not seem to care that my husband has been loitering there 3 hours a day for the past 6 weeks for meetings with his Census enumerators. ;-)
