WOW... it's time! One last deep breath and get ready for an experience that will change your life, either good or bad.
Some people realize that this event was more than they could take and vow never to do it again. Some people leave this event feeling energized with a renewed sense of hope, caring, faith that YES, together, we can find a cure for this disease. Most people leave with blisters... (maybe just one! :) ) but they also leave with stories to tell and a smile in your heart that will never be replace.
My heart smiles on all of you as you take that first step of the journey on Friday. The fear and anxious will melt and the smiles, laughter and yes, tears will heal the body, mind and soul.... and yes, blisters too! Don't be afraid because you are never alone... you are part of an incredible community that is resilient and strong and always caring and supportive. Enjoy every moment, every step, every conversation, every cheering supporter, every guy wear a pink bra, every little boy on the corner with the "Thanks for helping my mom" sign... just enjoy! This time will fly so sometimes it's good to just slow down and enjoy! It's not a race... no one is there to cheer for the first walker BUT everyone cheers for the last!
