I feel so good...

...healthy, happy, and like I really helped accomplish something.

Yes, the City of Hope's Walk for Hope Against Breast Cancer was this morning, and was so great. At 7:45, I picked up bagels, then the people I was taking. We find our way to Northwestern easily, cus I'm good a directions. We got there at about 8:30. Took a shuttle from the Ryan's Field parking lot to the event start.

We registered and got out number things to wear, and the tee-shirts you get for paying the registration fee. They had a booth set up with free apples, bananas, orange juice, and Panera Bagels. Though we already had some, Allie, Lauren and Jacqueline each took one. I had an apple. It was 9 by this time, and we had an hour before the race began.

We were right on the shore of Lake Michigan. It was overcast today, but the lake was still beautiful. Also, you could see directly down the coast into Chicago. Very cool to see the skyline like that.

We start the 4 Mile Fitness Walk at 10. It was a lot of fun, and so cool to see everyone walking like that. We made really good time, and finished in 1:04:56. Jacqueline wanted to break one hour, but our first mile took about 20 minutes. Considering, we had really good pace for the last three.

Next year, we either want to do the 5K run, or break an hour for the 4 mile. I'm looking forward to it already. We sat around for a little after, and at about 11:20, took the shuttle back to my car, and drove home. It only took about a half hour, so that was nice. I was home by noon.

I should be starting homework, but I haven't. I'm considering going over to Ci's. She has good ice cream. I know this, because I bought it for her yesterday. Also, I don't want to do homework. I hav a 4-page formal English paper to write by tomorrow, also. It was assigned on Friday. This is one of the only things I really dislike about my english class. I could have used a little prep-time. Oh well.

I'm gonna go now. If anything else exciting happens to me, I'll be sure to letcha know.
