One Week Countdown

I can hardly believe that a week from today I’ll be headed to DC for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk! Although I’ve had plenty of time to prepare it always seems like it sneaks up on me with last minute things to do. And it doesn’t help that I am out of town for a work assignment either.
Project Tutu went well. Well, it’s finished. When I started making my tutu I had no idea what was involved in making it a.k.a. I didn’t think it would take as much time as it did to make it. I’ll admit that it is a bit fluffier than I thought it would be and it does add some unneeded girth to my roundness, but I’ll wear it proudly!

This past Sunday I walked 18 training miles and I’ll admit that it wasn’t pretty. The first 9 miles went fine but the last 4 miles were a bit much. It could be partially that I didn’t have enough liquids with me since I forgot my 24 ounce water bottle. Thankfully I had a bottle of water already in the car, and there was a gas station next to where I parked. I was feeling really fatigued by time I finished. I’m just hopeful that I will be able to make due during the walk since I haven’t trained as much or as consistently as I would have liked to this year.
At the very least I’ll have a fabulous looking tutu to wear!
