The leg beneath me seemed tight and unused to the activity and it had only been 9 days since the last walk! But as I kept walking miracles happened...I had more energy, I was breathing better. I walked up the hill out of Sausalito without being even a touch winded or tired. I walked to the top of the bridge without stopping and didn't break a sweat. I walked across the bridge and felt fine. The only thing I made sure to do was stop more often, even if I didn't think I needed to and stretch. I made it to the Bay Bridge and there I saw the LONG LONG line to get in and remembered it was Timmy bobblehead night! Oh my. I stood in line and text messaged Glenn about my progress as he left Marin. He let me know an hour later he was in the Lefty O'Doul entry line and he would soon be inside. I was a ways off STILL! By the time I reach Cepeda Gate the mad yelled out "We are out of product! Go to the O'doul Gate!"
I was in line an hour and a half before Glenn, and by the tine I reached our seats he had finished a beer already.
Life will always throw a curve ball or two. How you react to it will be the difference of paddling backwards or moving forward. So I am back on track, with determination to get through to the end of the 3 day in one piece.
I had a plan to raise $16,000 to celebrate 16 years of survival from Breast Cancer. But I am sitting at $13,282. That's not bad AT ALL... but it wasn't THE PLAN. I would love another curve ball to come that puts me over the original goal. If you know of anyone who could make that happen...company, individual... send them to www.the3day.org/goto/donatetocathy
