We got a great night's sleep and were up at the crack of dawn Saturday morning to catch the bus over to the opening ceremonies at Stude Park. Very emotional opening ceremonies. We cried. It was a great motivator though, so off we went to walk our first 26.2 miles. WHOO HOO!!!
Over 1600 walkers registered
The first half of the day was a piece of cake. We were trucking along at the front of the pack, feeling great. We made it to the lunch stop at 9:30am. It was not until about mile 17 or 18 that things started getting a little uncomfortable. I had blisters that wrapped around the back of my heels. They did not feel good. By mile 23, I was walking on my toes. Julie did great!!! She didn't get blisters at all. Teach me to go buy BRAND NEW SHOES 2 days before a walk. I know, stupid. Anyway, we finished the marathon walk with 3 other amazing walkers. One young man, Mickey, is a 23 year old graduate from The University of Michigan working in Houston at Shell Oil. He was so sweet. The kind of guy that I hope Regan grows up and meets. His mother passed away last year from breast cancer, and he took it upon himself to raise the money and walk the Avon Walk all by himself. He was even a "Champion Fundraiser". Great guy!! The other 2 were a mother/daughter team. They were so sweet and kept us going. It really helped to have a support team there to keep pushing you. We were so tired and hurting those last 5 miles or so, it was entertaining. We just kept laughing at ourselves. The funniest line was "How are you doing, Mickey?" "Oh, I'm fine, I am just trying out different limps to see which one works best". I was so true of everyone. I guess you had to be there. :) Not so funny in type.
Just 2 more miles to go....the smiles are FAKE....we are HURTING!!!!
WHOO HOO!!! We finished the first day!!!
That night, Julie and I had lights out by 7:20pm. We were exhausted! We were up again at the crack of dawn again to walk another 13.1 miles. We stopped at the medical tent for some blister wrapping and advice on Julie's hurting hamstring. I got tape, she got ice. We were good to go. Piece of cake.

I have not figured out how to download video from our video camera onto the computer, but when I do, I will add the birth video to the movie. If you don't care to see me at my ABSOLUTE WORST, I would advise that you not click on the link! Don't worry...there is nothing graphic other than a pregnant belly. I just look horrible during the hospital stay.
Adam's video is next!
MAKE SURE YOUR VOLUME IS TURNED UP!!!
