I'm trying to focus on the purpose of the walk. It is a time to come together with my MS family, a group of people who are "get it." A group of people who all want a cure to MS as much as I do. We raise so much money and have so much fun all for an amazing purpose.
I only bought 3 different types of running socks all recommended by different people as their favorites. I have tried each pair once and I don't have a favorite yet. Also despite their "no blister" guarantee I've still had the start to blisters with each of my longer walks. I'm just prone to blisters on the toes no matter what I do (Vaseline, body glide, mole skin, band-aids, etc). Once I determine which brand of socks I like the best I will be buying more pairs for the walk. Have you tried any of these? What is your favorite brand?
Now on to the fun stuff. Photos from each of my training walks! The collages are in reverse order with my most recent walk first. . .
Sweet I figured I deserved a reward. It was SO good!
I realized I am very lucky to be able to do my training walks on The Cape and in Boston. You can't get much better than that! I also realize how lucky I am that I can walk - MS has not affected my mobility and for that I'm thankful.
I will walk 50 miles in 3 days for a purpose.
Someday I hope there will be a cure for MS and I won't have to ask people for donations. But that day has not come. So I will continue to ask. Will you support my fundraising by making a donation? I have to raise $1,500 and every dollar helps.
I'm looking for walking partners. If you live near me and want to walk after work or on a weekend let me know!!!
