this Walk was for YOU, Darcey!

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Today I was looking forward to meeting my local Spark Team members for a walk. Then I got the email that our fearless leader, Darcey, spent some time in hospital last night due to pain, and the walk was called off.

I was disappointed that we would not get together and give hugs, but then I got to thinking "Well, if the walk is called off because Darcey is in pain, I can walk for HER!"

Grab Winsten and out the door we go. A brisk 3.125 miles in 36 minutes, then I hit my "energy wall". I still have my cold, and I am sure that is what is zapping my energy.

But you know what? That's okay. I feel good about walking what I could, and the weather is so beautiful outside that I had fun. Now it is time to do a bit of low key stuff for the day, drink lots of water, eat right, take a nap, and all that has to fit in with MAKE A QUILT FOR ANOTHER KID!

I need to get busy!

Wishing you all a great Saturday, which will include some exercise, too.

Thanks for the inspiration, Darcey.....THIS walk was for YOU!

    It is great that you decided to walk for Darcey, I know that she would have done the same for you. 3.125 miles sounds like a terrific accomplishment for someone recovering from a cold. My hat is off to you and Winsten.

    I hope Darcey is back walking with you very soon.

    Blessings
