Favorite {Photo} Friday #46--Avon Walk Weekend!

It's Walk Weekend!! This morning I ran around finishing packing and going to the chiropractor for a last-minute adjustment, and then my awesome aunt Susan came to pick me up. This afternoon I headed into D.C. for "Event Eve"... event check-in and vendor fair. I sold some jewelry and met some great people and got properly pumped up for this weekend! The excitement was palpable!

I turned in my donations and my total ended up being--GET THIS--$3964!!! Holy crap cow! I qualified for both the Champion Fundraiser workout hat (which I also got last year with my $2500 of donations) and the Fearless Fundraiser wicking sports shirt. GO ME! I'm so excited. A thousand thanks to everyone who donated to my walk!!

Now it's time for me to head off to bed since I have to wake up at--gulp gulp gasp--4:15 a.m.!! But I will leave you with another favorite photo from last year's walk.

I walked with Andrea last year and we had a great time! When we finished the entire walk we had a while until closing ceremonies so we headed over to a brew pub conveniently located across the street to reward ourselves for a job well done. Yes, I'm all sweaty and gross; but check out that dark beer---yummmmm. The memory of that beer, so good after being so hard-earned, makes this photo a favorite. And yes, I will be enjoying a good, dark beer after this year's walk, too! :)

Wish me luck and good weather!

Good luck to you! I know you are going to rock the walk this year. After all your training the walk is going to seem like a letdown....not nearly as hard as you remember from last year. You're *SO* ready! Don't dance through the walk so much that you make others feel bad! I'm so proud of you and I can't wait to hear how good your post-walk-dark-beer tastes. xo xo xo
