Walking

This past Saturday I braved the heat with some of my fellow DCMetroMom friends for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. By brave the heat I mean there was a 100+heat index that day, and although the walk started at 8:15, the heat and humidity had long since set in over the city.

But ya know what? It's OK. So I sweated for a morning. That's nothing compared to what survivors and those honored and their families have gone through. It really hit me, walking that morning - seeing those with survivor shirts on. Seeing those carrying signs in memory of loved ones.

And, of course, it always help to walk with friends. Thanks to Andrea, Devra, Leticia, Stimey, Linda, MamaBird, Julie, Sandie, Jessica, Jodi, Nancy and Jess for the great conversation. And also thanks to Kristen for providing our own t-shirts - boy did they help in keeping track of us in the crowd! Thanks for Jess for coordinating us. And wow was eating at Hawk and Dove a great idea - thank to Jess, where we ran into Sarah who was walking with her family. We missed Susan, Suzie and Mary who did the sleepover though! I can't think of a better group of friends to do some good for women with :)

It was so great to see you again and walk with you for a while. Thanks as always for your listening ear and support. I'll be in touch when I can dig myself out of this work stuff a little bit more!
