March of Dimes- add your site!

A few years ago our family participated in March of Dimes. It was about the same time of year as Gabriel's day, and I thought it would be a nice family activity for the bunch of us.


I am lazy as the day is long and, having done no prep and never exercising, the 4 miles killed me. My husband, who was in training for the Marine Corps Marathon and running 6 miles a day and 15+mile runs on weekend did not see why his weenie wife wanted to quit. I kept insisting "It is symbolic! Nobody cares if I walk the whole thing or not!" and he was just as insistent "These people paid you to do walk so less talking and more walking!"

I was so glad to see the finish line.

This photo was taken at the beginning of the day. I don't have any photos taken at the end of the day. I think I was sitting in the car not talking to my husband at the time. Nobody thought to snap a photo of that momentous event.

So, THIS YEAR, instead of participating in March of Dimes myself I am supporting YOU! My loyal readers!

In the comments go ahead and add the link to your own page- I'll add a link at the top of my page so we can find this post. I'd love to hear about your experiences.

Way to go! I'm proud of you! (and will be cheering you on from the sidelines!)

The Harrison Crew is walking in Fort Worth again!! Our team is made up of my family and a girlfriends family. She and I were due within days of each other and we both delivered early. Her twins were born at 24 weeks. Her Parker passed away at 4 weeks. So we have a bond we never thought we would ever have.

Go Miracle Munchkins!!!!!!!
