this is what victory looks like

I returned home from the 3 Day Walk for Breast Cancer last night, a little worse for the wear, but on a natural high that’s hard to beat. This year was much harder than last year, with the heat and humidity. To see how we did with our fundraising in Tampa, as well as a picture of me at the finish with some teammates, visit my other blog, 3DayMom.com.

I couldn’t have done it without my friend Kim. She kept me going even when I wanted to lop my feet off at the ankles and get a ride back home. We shared a bed for 3 nights, and shared a fabulous experience together for 3 days.

For now, I’ll leave you with this picture of me from my return home last night – victory is sweet!

    Wow you look like you really did something hard!

    Well done.

    I did a 24mile marathon once and got really bad blisters. I could ahrdly walk for a week but the high and pleasure of raising all that charity money was amazing!

    I see a wrapped knee. That worries me a fair bit, hon.

    Then again, I’ve done some hefty damage to my knees before, so I may be overreacting.

    Xial – It’s not as bad as it looks. I hyper-extended my ligament, just like I did last year. It’s not hurting me right now as much as it hurt me last year, so I’m hopefully it will feel better in a week.

    Thank you all!
