After you finish, and have burned all those calories, you walk through the park and are handed so much food. Chocolate milk, bagels, apples, etc. We stopped at the Subway tent where they were handing out cookies, and look who was there handing us our treats! Thanks Jared, those cookies were just the thing we needed to kick start our weight-loss efforts :).
There were six of us who started the race together, but the rain was motivation for three of them to actually run. I, however, stuck by my guns. It takes more than a simple downpour to make me run. Here are the three of us walkers after our finish. Notice that one of us looks considerably drier...hmmm....Not to name any names (Heather), but Andrea and I really appreciate how selflessly you shared the umbrella. Don't worry about the pneumonia we caught, we'll be fine...
Here we are, six tough chicks willing to brave the elements to help woman-kind. You are all welcome. (Again, notice how pretty Heather looks, and how wet the rest of us look...)
And finally, to fully illustrate how much I was willing to sacrifice for a good cause, I present to you my shoe. Yes, that is a bloodstain from my walk. Wet shoes, wet skin, wet ankle socks and are not the best combination.
