The Starting Line!

Today was the first training session - 3 hilly miles.

All the teams - runners, walkers, triathletes met at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society headquarters at 8am. You hear me? 8 A M. That means in the morning. On a Saturday. Oh, sweet, sweet pillow, I miss thee.

The arrival was a mess of hard-to-find-parking and hard-to-find-your-event-team. Eventually, I found my team and listened to the orientation.

The workout was a bit harder than I anticipated. Not exhausting, but I was moving pretty fast (for me) and the hills were tougher than I thought they'd be. About halfway through they had a little comfort station with Gatorade, water, pretzels and Cheez-its. Man, I love me some Cheez-Its.
