Sunshine & Rain

Day 2 started off with rain …though we were thankful to not be in the sun all day! We came into camp with beautiful blue skies about 3 pm! Feeling good on Day 2 after massages, showers, dinner & now laying in the tent with feet elevated on my suitcase.

Today leaving lunch was an older couple handing out business type cards – with photos of their daughters – both lost due to Breast Cancer. We saw them a couple more times & again right before coming into camp happily cheerins us on & saying “we’ll see you tomorrow!”. I could have shuffled more miles today for reasons like that – it makes you forget about the pain of feet, legs, & hips.

Along the route today we went through a neighborhood decked from one end of the street to another for Trisha; a neighbor, friend, mother, sister who has breast cancer & is participating. I told my teammate I was glad Trisha wasn’t close to us b/c I don’t think I could have handled it.
The weather is forecasted to be great tomorrow & our team is ready to finish. Thank you again to our donors! We wouldn’t be here without you!

Here’s one pic of the Arizona sky today as I was laying on a mat stretching out….
