A Few Laps- For Life

Please excuse the poor picture quality, I am a slacker, that rarely remembers to take my camera anywhere, so I took this with my phone. 

Friday night I participated in Relay For Life.   Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans for us.  The evening was beautiful, but slowly and surely, the lightening began to flash in the distance.  The organizers of the event decided that to protect everyone's safety, they would "call" the event at midnight.  If you recall, my walking time wasn't until 3 in the morning.  So, with the exception of 3 laps, my rear did most of my relay-ing. 

Although the actual walking part was a bust, I had a great experience, and was able to raise more money than I had ever hoped to raise. 

Maybe next year, I'll actually get to "relay". 

I love you Grandma and Grandpa!
