Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes

Saturday, October 06, 2012

This morning, I got up early and got ready for a 3 mile walk with Clara's Walkers Team to raise money for diabetes research. When I left home, it was rainy, chilly, and only a little area of the sky was clear. We arrived and checked-in at 9 and had a little breakfast. Then we all gathered in front of the stage and did some great warm-ups. When we left at 10, heading towards the Marina, the clouds had disappeared and we had warmed up.

We had a wonderful walk to the marina and back in downtown Buffalo, NY. Afterwards, our teams gathered for pictures and a nice lunch was provided. It was a great morning!!!

Back at home, I stopped only for a quick lunch, then my husband and nephew helped me clean the garage. Then they went downstairs to clean the workbench. The basement is coming along and I just have maybe two more mornings' worth of work to finish the cleaning of spiderwebs and mildew. It will be great to have these little projects completed in the next week before I get busy with other things.

    Awesome on the walk ... I've got the American Cancer Society's Making Strides for Breast Cancer walk coming up 10/27. I so enjoy those kinds of things, as I know you do as well.

You lead an active life and THAT is a GREAT thing!!

Walk on ...

    Sounds like you had a great walk for a good cause! I hope you manage to get all the house cleaning done and have time to enjoy other things as well.
