The Weekend

We did it!  30 miles, lots and lots of laughter, a few tears, some very ugly blisters and much gratitude for dear friends.  I feel so privileged to have been able to be a part of this incredible experience with Candace, who is just finishing up her year long fight with breast cancer.  It felt really good to be a part of something so big and that is doing so much good.

30 miles of walking was hard!  Fortunately, that left us with lots of time for chatting, which is something we are very good at.  Also, I now feel like I know Atlanta in a way that I didn't before! We walked by landmarks and beautiful neighborhoods which I had never been in and it was a treat to see them.

The crew for the walk was fantastic.  They were cheering you on every step of the way and there outfits were so fun to see!

At the end of the first day, there was a dinner where everyone came in their pajamas.  Julie got us all cute pajama bottoms and shirts.

The first day we walked 20 miles and the second day was 10.  We finished up in front of the capital building with a beautiful ceremony celebrating those who are survivors and those who are still fighting the fight.  Let's pray that they soon find a cure.
