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.
