Yesterday was spent with my sisters. Later in the afternoon my girlfriends aka the head shavers showed up. We all sat around and laughed and had a great visit. Oh and ate Pizza King pizza, brought from Hoopeston. Around 8 last night, the girls decided to head to Walgreens to get some last minute things for the walk this morning. I stayed back and was snoozing on the couch by the time they returned. Yes, the steroids wore off and I was exhausted!
This morning came quickly. I don't know why, but I woke up in the middle of the night freezing and decided at that point to reset my alarm so I could enjoy a longer warmer shower before the walk. I think it was the anticipation of how cold it was supposed to be this morning for the walk. I woke up at 5:30 and took a 1/2 hour shower. When I came downstairs I realized that our thermostat downstairs is set for night time. Poor Meg and Lisa froze all night long! Sorry girls, my coldness I was feeling was probably sympathy pains. Hotel Naughton will not disappoint for your next visit! I promise!
The walk was wonderful! The weather was perfect, it was chilly, but it was not freezing out. I made it too! I am weak these days, but I only cheated a tad bit! I feel accomplished and again, just seeing my support system will keep me pushing through. Thank you to all and I can't wait to do this again next year!
|Ryan stayed in this morning and was watched by Lucy and Brian. We were afraid it would be too cold for him!|
|Justin and I with our tired eyes, but determined to walk this 5K together!|

|Look at my group of supporters! WOW!!!|
