Want to say thank you to everyone who supported Jessica Williamson and I. It was amazing and probably one of the hardest things we have ever accomplished. The walk started at 7 am. Pretty much as soon as we turned the first corner, mother nature opened up the sky and it down pored. Thunder and lightning.
We walked approximately the first 10 to 12 miles in the pouring rain and thru the mud. Then came the very hot sun. We preyed for shade. Every mile we accomplished we high five each other and said piece of cake. As we got closer to our goal the high fives got a little lower and the piece of cake came out in whispers. Finally mile 26.2, and 10 straight hours of walking, bruises on the back of my calves, both of us with blisters the sizes of silver dollars, ache bones and sunburned, WE DID IT! It was worth every step. Thank you Jessica for being next to me every step of the way.
