Tales from the road...

Last weekend I had the pleasure of walking White Rock Lake with Tiffany and Coleen in what was our longest training session to date. Popping up with the sun on Saturday morning, we started our walk dressed in our warmest gear (everyone except for me...oops!) for the chilly 50-degree weather that had moved in town to greet us. We started the trail at 7:15 and noted that the "bridge" was our landmark. We were able to know how far from the finish we were with respect to our proximity to the bridge. In usual fashion, what started out as a loving landmark quickly turned into the the dreaded reality in the eyes of three very hungry/tired women, "Ok y'all, WHERE is the bridge?!"

We powered through a Walk & Wag marathon, the eventual temperature change and several new blisters to complete our walk with a restored calm that we can, in fact, do this. We now have a 9 day countdown until we start our race and we couldn't be more excited. Thank you again for all of your prayers and support - we couldn't do it without you!

Sunrise...sunset (FYI - these were taken from the bridge)


  1. Love the pictures!! Crazy to think they were taken in the exact same spot 2.5 hours apart!

    "CoCo, where's the bridge??"

    Good luck ladies!! Looks like we're going to have beautiful weather for this walk. I know you will all have a wonderful time, and it will be very inspirational for you. Bring tissues for opening and closing ceremonies! :-)

    Maybe we'll run into you along the route!
