I'm a tired and a little sore blogger tonight.
This morning my daughter and I participated in a five mile walk for MS (multiple sclerosis) in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The group I advise at school not only volunteers to man water stops at this event but we had a walking team too. The kids raised over $1500 which is excellent.
One of my work friends also has this disease so there was a bunch of staff members taking the walk today. I got to do a lot of catching up done since we got to chat while we walked, and it was great to get so much exercise too.
We're ready. I snapped a few shots as we walked. They aren't the greatest, because I was walking as I snapped.
Can you make out all the people walking way down on the left said of the road.? Not sure how many people walked but I bet it was at least a few hundred.
We didn't have team shirts but some teams did.
And we followed the orange signs. First we walked into downtown, and then we walked out in the suburban areas and then we walked back into town.
We got a cool view of the bridge which crosses the river into Maine.
And I really like this clock.
And there were some Easter and spring cheer at shop windows. I think I need to go downtown someday after work and do a little window shopping. I just didn't have time to take any window photos.
But I did manage to snap a photo of this arty table which was in a window.
After the walk my daughter and I went out and had sandwiches for lunch.
The French fries were so delicious I took most of my sandwich home for tomorrow and ate fries.
Then we went shopping. It was a lot of fun, even if I did spend more money than I planned on. :)
So between walking for MS and walking around shopping, I got to highest count ever on my Fitbit. It might not be the most I ever walked in my life, but I am impressed with myself. Usually I manage around 10,000 steps (a little more or a little less) a day.
And that's why tonight I am tired and even a little bit sore. Its that feeling you get once you sit down and actually relax. Think Its going to be an early night.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
