Weekly Rundown 4/22-4/28

Nothing very exciting happened last week. I ran, walked Daisy (she’s up to 3.5 miles now) and shook my fist regularly at the sky as the rain continued to fall. My knees were a pest and achy again–I blame the rain and damp.

We did have our American Heart Association 5K in Lewiston.

Since his heart attack, my husband has trained to be an advocate for them, and he was asked to speak before the walk. In true Stevie fashion, the speech was at 9AM and we got there at 6:45. Which was fine except the sunshine we were promised went away by 8 and I was left freezing.  Fortunately, the rain didn’t fall, but I definitely learned a lesson about taking more layers!

It was pretty empty when we got there, so we volunteered to help set up.

However, the rest of the day went well. The speech was great, and he even got nabbed by the local news to speak. We had a team of 10 walkers, so it was fun to talk with everyone that came to support us as we strolled. Some people (like our neighbors!) we hardly ever see, and it was wonderful to catch up with them.

The sky was gray, but the crowd didn’t mind as we headed off on the start of the walk. 

The walk took us along the Androscoggin River, and the falls were definitely thundering after our rainy spring

We can’t wait to do it again! Which is good, because apparently we are doing it again in Portland at the end of May 🙂
