I did it!

Today was the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Pennsauken, NJ, and I can happily report that I walked the entire walk. My right knee in particular had something to say about it afterwards, but that's all okay because hey: I DID IT! I walked the entire 5K around the park. Nice and steady the whole way proved to be the answer.

I'm considering it a pretty major accomplishment, since I'm still not over my rheumatoid arthritis flare and my knees woke me up, shouting with pain (the knees, not me) at several points last night. And hey - I raised $530 for breast cancer research and treatment, and my team as a whole raised $1756! MAJOR thanks to those of you who donated on my behalf - you and I know who you are!

And now, it's time for a well-earned nap.

Thanks, Jenn! (Sadly, it's turning out to cost quite a lot.)

Congratulations - I was hoping you felt at least a little better before attempting this.

Sorry for the quiet on this end; started cross-training two weeks ago (hey, what can I say: you inspired me) and am achy and Dead. Dog. Tired.

I know you know the feeling.

I'm proud of you for cross-training, and wish I didn't know what you meant by "Dead. Dog. Tired." I am paying for the "play" now, and have been since about 5 p.m. yesterday. But there's nothing to be done for it, really, apart from inquiring about getting something stronger than Tylenol from my doctor.
