I guess I took a lot more pictures this year b/c last year I was able to recap the whole walk in one blog post but this year I have way too many pics for that. So you get a blog post for each day!
Oh and if you want to read my recap about last year go here.
There are over 200 people who volunteer on The Crew (including my mom). The Crew is amazing! They spoil us rotten and let me tell you we look forward to every single rest stop. It is so nice to see their smiling faces cheering us on. Oh and the Gatorade refills and candy aren't so bad either!
Each rest stop usually comes up w/ a theme and dresses up. On Day 1 we saw a Vegas theme and my friend Susan was "52 Pickup" (top left pic). Some other themes on Day 1 were 50's, Mardi Gras and The Adams Family which I should have taken a pic of them but you can see some of their signs in the left top and bottoms pics.
Oh and I may have posted the bottom right pic on IG saying "I got leied on the MS Challenge Walk." I thought it was funny! :)
CCRT. While it gets boring at times it is SO pretty!
The good thing about getting back so early is that we had time to soak our feet, get massages AND have reflexology. Usually the reflexology is all filled up so we've never had it. It was so relaxing.
We enjoyed a short evening program and then went to bed. Jenn was asleep before 9:00 PM while the lights in the cabin were still on and I wasn't far behind her!
P.S. The theme of the walk this year was Pirates so that is why you will see pirate related things throughout my pics (aka: bottom right pic - lol)!
Day 1 was great. We had beautiful weather and felt great while walking. We ate plenty of candy all along the route and had plenty to talk about.
Thank you to everyone who sent me/us messages. I loved getting your tweets, likes, emails and calls. It was so motivating!
Hope you enjoyed reading about Day 1. Day 2 is next!
