Spark Rally with the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life...woo hoo!
Saturday, June 20, 2009
We finished our SparkRally at the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life today...for 24 hours our SparkTeam (6 members participated, and what a SIX! :-) One SparkPeople member even joined in from outside our Binghamton area!) had someone on the track...I and two others were there for the WHOLE 24 hours. I came home at 2 pm today and crashed until 9...will head to bed again shortly. My wife woke me around 9 to stay up a bit so I wouldn't wake up in the middle of the night...but you know what? I probably would've slept right through until the morning...lol! Don't know WHEN I slept so SOUNDLY!
I'm so glad we DID it and MADE IT HAPPEN! Melissa said that we were in tenth place (out of 90+ teams!) for laps totaled during the Relay...which, considering the small size of our Team and our missed laps due to starting late with the scanner (we weren't informed of this tracking method until hours after the Relay began), I think is AWESOME!
I am SO PROUD of our SparkTeam, The Binghamton Area Losers! A big WOO HOO for ALL OF US! We had a photographer from our local paper take a picture of us...hamming it up for the Luau theme this year:
As my pc is in the repair shop, too tired to bother to hook my camera up to my wife's pc...will add pics to this blog sometime soon! Stay tuned! :-)
Unfortunately I picked up a blister between my big toe and the ball of my foot late into the Relay. I had changed into longer socks for a nap during the chilly night and didn't catch a teensy wrinkle down in this area when I hit the track again. I was bummed over having to limit myself down the home stretch...will probably have to avoid a walking workout for a day. But then, perhaps that will push me to get out on my bike tomorrow...! Hope it's a decent day of weather...!
