The MS Challenge Walk is one day away. ONE DAY! This evening I will be driving to the Cape for the opening event. Tomorrow I will be walking 20 miles. Then another 20 on Saturday. Then 10 more on Sunday. Then Monday I will stay in bed all day long (or maybe get up for a massage).
To say I am scared is putting it lightly. I'm nervous. I'm excited. What if I can't do it? What if I have a MS flare? What if, what if, what if?
Sometimes I just have to make my brain stop. Stop thinking. So what if I can't do it - all. Nobody said I'm REQUIRED to walk ALL 50 miles. So I've accepted the fact that I may not be able to do it all. And that is OK! I will certainly try to do all 50 but I will not put my health at risk just to say I did it all. I will do what my body allows me to do.
So to distract myself from the upcoming event I've been shopping. I love shopping. It is a great way to procrastinate from what I really need to be doing - like training. At least I'm walking in the malls. Ha!
The Ride. I got it when I saw the movie/met Phil Keoghan (host on Amazing Race). I figured if he can ride his bike cross country I can walk 50 miles. This water bottle will be just one source of inspiration!
I also bought some new shorts and capri pants b/c depending on the weather I will have options! I'm sure I will way overpack as I always do! Keeping my fingers crossed for great weather and NO RAIN!
Please, please, please keep Jenn and I in your thoughts and prayers this weekend. We would love to hear from you so feel free to send me texts, tweets, FB messages and emails.
For anyone that would still like to donate you can do so here.
Thanks again to all of my donors. I wouldn't have been able to participate without each of you!
