Piper did her first 5K this morning. She was a champ.
It was our annual MS Walk and we raised over $1000 for Team Forever Young because we have the best friends and family EVER. You know who you are. We’re grateful!
First, there were donuts.
You can tell from our winter coats that it was a balmy 37 degrees. The sun was bright, though, and the donuts and hot chocolate helped. We pinned on our numbers:
We signed the MS Wall of Fame.
Then we walked. And because there was a Piper we also skipped and jumped and watched fish and visited with ducks. They gave out Oreos at the halfway mark. Typical 5 K stuff. Maybe our time wasn’t stellar but our fun was.
Just as the finish line came into view, Piper asked “If we finish the walk, does that mean it’s over?”
“The walk?” I said. “Yep. We’re almost done.”
“No. I mean MS. Is it over?”
“Nope,” I said, “but we’ll keep walking until there is a cure, okay?”
“Okay,” Piper agreed, “especially if there are Oreos.”
