Keep in mind that I signed up and everything before my diagnosis, so it seemed all the more important that I complete this race. It ended up being me, Audrey, Emilee, and Audrey's friend Kristin (is that right Aub?). We had a grand old time and completed the race in a modest 2 hours, if I remember right. My little pedometer on my phone informed me that I took approx. 8500 steps during the race. In a normal, busy day at work I take about 4000, usually less. So that was good. We already made plans to do the race next year, but Audrey says we are running it. That may take more training than I put in for this one. But I am down. Count me in for next year. Here are some pictures:
All the people in front of us. I even zoomed in a little, so you can get a good idea of how many were there. It think it was more than 18,000.
Here are my walking buddies. Kristin on the far end, Audrey in the middle and Emilee at the end.
I felt left out, so I took a picture with Em. Check out our sweet glasses!
Amy and Nik made this cool sign and, along with them, my parents (which was a surprise) and my mother-in-law, Jeanne were waiting for us at the finish line. It was an emotional moment.
