Thank you so much for being willing to support me even in moments of insanity! You know though, this kind of stuff just spurs me on! You never know what I’m going to be asking of you next! I think I’ve said before, knowing me should come with some sort of warning label. There, you’ve been warned. 🙂
I was fairly certain from the moment this idea popped into my head that I could do it…until of course, the night before. It felt much like signing up for a half marathon that is five months away knowing that sometime in that five months you will have to deliver a baby. You would think I would learn.
I did go with a plan though. I decided that I would walk 5 sets of steps and then do a lap around the track. That made it so those muscles critical to me not falling flat on my face got a little bit of rest at just the right time. My mom and dad came with to walk with me, count steps, keep me hydrated, and cheer me on.
Here’s a little how the mighty climb of 39 (Ooo, ooo, that rhymes and I kinda like it) went…
Sets 1-10 – “This is feeling pretty good. I think I can do this. I’m gonna be a little sore tomorrow.”
Sets 10-20 – “Whose ridiculous idea was this? I may actually be crawling the last half.”
Sets 20-30 – “Marifaith, Dixie, Elsbeth, Julie, Alana, Jen, Kaycee…” (You ladies are awesome!)
Sets 31-35 – “Only 9, 8, 7, 6, 5 more. I think I might be a little sad that I’m almost done…okay, that moment has passed.”
Sets 36-39 – (And you must read this in your best Haitian accent) “No problem.”
Of course, the best part of yesterday was thinking about party packs that you all have been busy making! Some of which were made in honor or in memory of someone you know and love, (which I love!) some of which were made in honor of those you do not know, but you know God loves. (again, amazing stuff!)
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
By the way…I would love for you to share any thoughts on your experience making and delivering your party packs. I know Julie shared hers here. Feel free to also share any other links to similarly nutso, but lovely at the same time, activities in which you have participated.
And again, Thank you!
