Is It Time Already?

Wow, it is so hard to believe that this time next week I will be on a plane headed to DC for my sixth Susan G. Komen 3 Day Breast Cancer Walk! As my departure date gets closer, I get more and more anxious. Anxious because:
·         I am away from home for a work assignment, and I am trying to do a mental inventory of what I have at home and what I still need.
·         My training has been very inconsistent for this walk.
·         I am still breaking in a new pair of training shoes.
·         I need to add more pink hearts to my fanny back with the names of people I walk in honor of.
·         I’ll be home for a little over 24 hours before I leave for DC.
Although I have all of these anxious feelings, I am so excited about the walk! About 10 members from my Dallas walking team will be walking in DC. Some of us have walked together before in other cities and I know we will have a blast. We are going in early and staying after the walk to take in some sites. I even think a friend’s friend is having a little get together for us on Monday evening after the walk to celebrate.
I know my anxious feelings will soon pass to excitement. Excited to see DC again (it’s been over 20 years since I’ve been there!), to be in DC so close to a presidential election, to be there with my friends, to be reunited with my PINK 3 Day family, and just the amazing journey the 3 Day is!
And hopefully if all goes well, there should be a fantastic cupcake in my future too!
