First tip is to think of a nice reward to give yourself when it is all over. Concentrate on the reward and time will pass more quickly. Enjoy the "crack" (Irish for atmosphere and general excitement of the situation.) I'm sure you will meet interesting people and perhaps even a love interest!
Good luck.
My reward will be making it to the end.... or even the first mile will make me happy!

There will be no meetings of a love interest for me.... LOL

I will however be walking for My Old acquaintance and friend who has been trying to help me get my body back .. fitness wise doing chair exercises and motivational shouldering... training for me and a group of us in need so we can get back onto our feet....I want to lose the walker.. it is cumbersome and annoying. Necessary for any real walking as I am not steady and such.. but hopefully I won"t have to use it for the rest of my time..

Our whole group will be walking for Christie... I just found out today That we were walking for her!!!!YAYYYYYYYYYYY

She is the young girl whom I posted about who had been hit by a car on her bike... by the way that is still in the air.. they are still unsure completely what happened...

Anyway I was told that she will be on the sidelines tomorrow while we walk for her! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

I have an iron on thing For Christie to add to my shirt Tonight before we meet tomorrow!
I am going to take my time be careful and all should be ok....

I DID IT!!!!
 STARTED AT 1:30 I CROSSED THE FINISH LINE AT 2:44 PM, WITH BETTY AND A COUPLE GIRLS FROM THE GROUP. OUR TIME WAS 1 HOUR 14 MINUTES AND SOME ODD SECONDS!

My tail feathers are completely whipped. All the 2 and 4 mile runners were done and the 10 milers were running past us last girls and my son...and Bob..They both decided to walk with me.

I can.Believe how Long it took to walk that 2 miles.... oh my....The last stretch was really painful and my heel was doing something weird... it felt awful like that muscle behind the ankle or tendon that allows the heel to extend when you walk tightened up in extremely sharp pain and made the finish line walk a bit rough..My hips were done.. my nitro helped for the other pain and I was able to finish with one stop to pull a water bottle out.... so I tried to stay hydrated..and even still I was thirsty by the end!
 Anyway I am good,and all went well as I made the full 2 miles!!!  YAYYYYYYYYYYYY FOR US!!!!!

Good on you Karen:)
A stupid question. Do you have a swimming pool near by? Thats one of the very best ways I know of to get a really good body workout. It won't strain your joints etc but will give all your muscles good 'definition'. Just a mile a day and you'll keep that Doctor away. (Ok, not a mile then:) And remember that the real secret of anything is to make it into a habit, it's not how far you go (swim), its making it 'habitual' that will count.

Actually I am starting at the gym next Tuesday if I am well. Tuesday and Thursday they have a senior pool aerobics and even though I am not a senior and physical therapy water class I qualify for at a discount price of $10.00 a month which is cheap.. gives me access to the pool , the hot tub, and the sauna.. if I like ... But can't... causes problems ...so the pool and Hot tub is going to become a regular trip for me on Tuesdays and Thursdays!
Physical therapist thinks it will help my hips...and joints and give me some more muscle tone in my legs..

Thanks  for the support and the advice.. it is good advice..Yor_on!

I bought two new swimsuits going to Standford for some water Therapy! I hope I don't look like a duffus wearing them.. I am way to heavy to be in a swim suit!

Karen, I recommend the Mediterranean Diet for you.

Also, lay off the booze.
