One becomes a team

My friend decided she's going to sign up and walk in DC with me. YAY! I changed my status from individual walker to team. She probably won't sign up for another month but that's ok. We are team second base savers. :o) Cute right? I officially started training this week. I walked 5.5 miles during the week and 6.02 on Saturday and 4.75 on Sunday. Today is rest day and boy do I need it! I'm super excited for the walk. I got my shoes that I'll wear to the walk and gave them each a try this weekend, they were comfy so that's great! I also go my hydration belt (works great), a wrist wallet and the important things too. Like body glide and moleskins. :o)  OH and super thick comfy socks. They rock! After all those miles my feet feel fine!

It's snowing again and I am bummed. I took a vaca day today cause the roads are icy and slick today and I didn't want to give it a go. I made it the other 4 days this week and well I get a 3 day weekend! Whooo hooo. The down side to all this snow, I have only walked 2 miles this week!!!!!!!!!!!! ERRRR. I really had hoped I'd walk A LOT more this week!
Upside is I found a watch online today that I want for walking. It will keep track of my steps, miles and pace. :o)  I also sent out lots of donation request emails and got another donation today!!!!! Yes!!!
It's like Christmas when I open my email or go to the 3-day site and see that I have another donation. My friends generosity is wonderful. It makes me so excited to be on this journey!!!  It's an amazing feeling that I can not describe!! Thank you to all of you for you wonderful support. I could not do this with out my friends and family!!! I love you!

Here's to NO MORE snow this winter!!!!!!!!!!
