I was quite the cheerleader today!
It all started off by going to the gym to teach Group Power with J and this lovely lady:
Sidenote: Doesn’t she look super happy for a Saturday morning? I was a little jealous (mad?) that she looked so perky to be honest. I NEVER look like this in the morning. (it’s true, ask J)
Anyways, I like to believe that I cheered the participants in my class to push themselves to their limit this morning. I know I sure did!
After getting home from class J and I headed out on our bikes to cheer on my fabulous family during their 60 mile walk for the cure! These people are truly amazing – it’s such a great cause. The least I can do is bake them some cookies and cheer them on!
My Uncle Denny set up the “cheer station”, complete with popsicles, candy, water, and a big bowl of ice water with paper towels for people to soak and wipe their faces with. I think the paper towels and popsicles were the biggest hit – they were so grateful.
Here come 2 of the 4!
Cute, right? My Uncle Denny had been waiting all day for my Aunt Pat! This was right around Mile 16 or so for them today so they decided to take a break and visit while we waited for the other 2.
And…..here they come (the 2 smiling in the front)!
I love that I was able to be a part of this experience. I know first hand what a difference it is to have people cheering you on (especially family!). It can be the difference between finishing and finishing strong.
Good job, Ladies!! You are all AWESOME.
I was quite the cheerleader today. I guess when you’re as old as I am this is the only way I’ll ever get to be a cheerleader, huh?
Do you like to participate in races? Run/walk/cheerlead??
