Well ladies. It's finally here.
Remember a few months ago when I told you I was going to walk 60 miles in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day in Chicago?
It's this weekend.
Somehow the 3-Day got lost in the shuffle of this pregnancy. Between puking my guts out and napping on the couch, training to walk 20 miles a day for 3 days has definitely not topped my list of "things I want to do today."
But, I'm gonna try! My doctor's given me the okay so I'm going to go into this thing and do as much as I can. But I'm also going to let little Baby R lead the way. If baby is tired, I'll rest. If baby is hungry, I'll eat. And if baby feels like puking...hey I'll do that too. But this time I'll do it all in front of over 1,000 people. Because I committed to this event and I want to see it through to the finish.
So I'm heading to Chicago tonight to stay with my sister. Tomorrow will be spent prepping for the big day...and then Friday morning, bright and early (well, come to think of it, it won't even be bright yet...) we'll be off!
Although I'm nervous because of the whole carrying a child thing, I am really excited to have the opportunity to participate in this event. The whole experience has been incredibly eye opening thus far and I have been so moved by the generosity of my friends and family. And to be in the presence of so many woman committed to ending such a devestating disease, well, I'm sure inspiring is not even close to summarizing how it's going to feel.
I'm using Monday as a travel day...so I'll be back on Tuesday with a full report! Hope everyone has a lovely weekend....and send some good vibes my way if you think about it, okay? Babes and I could really use them!
Feeling like summer with Chill Pops!
