Feeling better

But tired and disappointed.

Tired: I did the full 20 miles in the Walk for Hunger yesterday. But it rained for the first 6-7 miles. Wet shoes + wet socks = hideous blisters, leading to awkward walking to avoid the painful squishing, which taxes the joints and muscles in a new and different way, resulting in much exhaustion the next day. (I'm sure the extra 9 pounds I'm carrying around didn't help either.) So. Very. Tired.

Disappointed: All day long I consoled myself with the knowledge that even though I will be forced to be at work through dinner yet again, I at least will get the purple G2 Gator@de out of the deal. Two dinners in a row with no purple G2 Gator@de = me suffering much disappointment.

My goodness! I can't believe you made it twenty miles with blisters. I am very impressed.

You walked 20 miles!! Wow, that is impressive. I couldn't do that on any given day let alone when I'm the p-word.

Hope your feet are feeling better soon.

I am also impressed with the walking that many miles. . . and the fact that you've only gained nine pounds.
