…yes we did! two days. thirty miles. the logo on the back of this year’s shirt is very cool. it reads “did the 2”. I didn’t catch that pink “i” the first time I read it and I love that it’s so subtle. this event is certainly a group effort. the staff and the volunteers work so hard to make it “easy” to walk those 30 miles. but when it comes down to it, walking 30 miles in 2 days is really personal.
I am so proud of myself and my sister karen for doing it again. her 6th walk and my 5th. I think the walks get easier, but we get older…it sort of balances out?! (although I’ll bet karen would say the walk itself was a lot easier when she was six years younger – I told a few people this year that she is now the age I was when I did my first walk…and I think she’s a bit more sympathetic to my complaints about how much it hurts!)
here are a few of my favorite photos from the weekend – you get a good taste of what we saw, how hard we walked, and how much fun we had.
