All my bags are packed I'm ready to go...

This time tomorrow we will (hopefully) be about 6-7 miles into Day 1 of our walk!! I am so excited. I can't even imagine I will sleep well tonight knowing that the alarm will sound at 4:00am and I will wake up, lather up with Vaseline and blister pads and hit the pavement. I live a life of glamour.

Last night as I was packing I was praying for my teammates and thanking God for all of you who have continually supported us. We are now at $11,200 (collectively) raised for breast cancer research!! That is truly amazing and we can't thank you enough. I was also laughing as I made my packing list and realized I am traveling with items that I have never before needed to travel with. Items such as Blister pads, Vaseline, bunion pads (I don't even have bunions!! They just help with certain pressure points) a zillion pair of socks, 2 pair of tennis shoes....the list goes on.

The more I packed the more excited I got. This is it. The time has come. Someone else realized the time has come....I had a little helper who got rather pouty as he realized my intent was to leave town....but notice he is lending his support! :) (Hint: His collar...)
