9 miles down. Eating lunch and waiting for the storm to pass! Ready to go.
I want to thank Jen and Clay Mason for helping me meet my 1,000.00 goal. I’m off to a great start.
Preparing for my MS walk and of course nothing can go easy. Tired and packing I realize the weather in St. Louis isn’t going to be great this weekend. Out of everything I have ready to go I didn’t have a rain poncho. Decided to go down to the local Wal-Mart and purchase one.
The tornado sirens go off and I’m stuck in the car because Wal-Mart is on lock-down. Sigh. Finally, the sirens stop and in I go. Acquired said poncho, some G2 Gels, a gel shot (no alcohol) and some protein bars. Annoyed. Finally, left Wal-Mart.
Blogging, when I should be packing. Cat tearing up furniture. Whatever.
Going to throw some clothes in the dryer.
I just received an email from the St. Louis Multiple Sclerosis Society finalizing those last-minute informational tasks before the walk begins Friday morning. We will be starting and staying at Washington University, of which I’m not familiar with at all. They have attached a map with locations for parking and where we will be bunking for the next two evenings.
Today I will pick up my packet and my room key. I’m beginning to sense a bit of deja vu. You would think I would be more concerned with the walk, but let’s be honest, I’m fretting staying in a college dorm, with a roommate I haven’t met, and yes friends…. the bathroom is down the hall. Sigh….been there done that folks. In college and in the Army.
1. Long grueling walk – (without rucksack of course) – check
2. Sleeping in a unfamiliar area and sharing the facilities – (at least I’m not on fire or cleaning detail) – check check
3. Individuals yelling at you from the sidelines – (this will be positive reinforcement I’m sure) – unlike this reinforcement: checkity check check
Like I said been there – done that.
I walked 7 miles on Monday and came home from work today and immediately jumped into my running gear. Why is it so hard for me just to sit still! I want to run, but I’m fighting the urge and need to get ready for this weekend! So hard to do! Eighteen miles on Friday.
This weeks mileage = 11.61.
Month of May = 50.94 with an overall mileage total of 392.41 – 10,922.59 to go. Next week begins the prep for the 50 mile walk. Hope everyone is having a good Memorial Day weekend.
