Twenty-four hours from now, I’ll be at least 15-miles into our 60-mile walk. Jenni and I will probably be giddy at this point, or into our not-talking just-wanna-get-to-camp phase, which is scary and you probably don’t want to see it. It’s possible we could also be in the “Our friends are so fucking awesome!” phase, because that’s a lot of our conversation during the walk.
I had an idea that I wanted to post something all heartfelt before starting off on the walk tomorrow morning, but work’s got me running in circles and there’s still laundry to be done if I plan on wearing a shirt during The 3 Day.
Here’s a list that Jenni posted on our team website of locations you can cheer us on. The cheering stations are seriously one of our most favorite parts of all, and you’ll see why if you show up to one. And here’s the information for Closing Ceremonies.
And if you happen to drive by and see a bunch of people walking with somewhat haggard looks on their faces, honk and wave – for just a brief moment, it’ll make them forget they have miles and miles ahead of them.
