I've been trying to figure out what to say. It was an amazingly beautiful night. Although a tiny bit humid, we couldn't have asked for better weather.
Our campsite won the award for the best themed.
Knitting while waiting for the start time.
Hubby and I getting ready for the start. Note the cool lamp shade light above my head.
The Survivor lap. I had asked hubby to join me as he's a survivor too. We had no idea there would only be 3 of us. They even made us speak..yikes!
So we walked a lap, then a caregiver lap, then my pal Christine and her sister came and we walked some more laps...bigger laps even. I started off really well.
Mr. Bones hanging around.
See the luminara! Gosh these highlighted the entire track! It was awesome!
They burned until we put them out, about 11 hrs total burn time! Some didn't make it all night though. Each time we walked around, we read all the names...sometimes we had somber, quiet laps, sometimes we were all laughing and talking. It all hit us at different times. We cried, hugged and laughed. Sometimes we held on to help each other around, when it got hard to walk. I ...er...kinda..overdid it and pulled a hip muscle.
My boss juggling a lap.
Oh and at 1 am, the crazy hat lap!
This is the 4 am lap...umbrella lap, we were the only 2
Everyone who was left. We only had 3 teams walk, but with 5 total teams, we raised over $11,000. Not too bad!
As for me, I'm pretty much recovered I think. Compared to what a lot of people go through in their cancer treatment, this was nothing.
