Yesterday APL, River and I walked in the May 2011 Denver Arthritis Walk. It was rain-snowing when we left the house, but luckily by the time we got down to Denver it was only gray and not even very cold. But, maybe because of the bad weather threatening, there weren't nearly as many people at this walk as there were at the Jingle Bell Walk in December. So, I have to admit, the atmosphere wasn't nearly as exciting as it was in December - though River seemed equally excited!
I did manage to just reach my goal of having more people on Team Z at this walk than at the last walk. At the Jingle Bell Walk we had nine people (and three dogs) and at this walk we had eleven people (and the same three dogs!) So I am excited that I was able to achieve that. Unfortunately I don't have a full team picture - only a partial one. So for this post I chose a picture of APL and me in my blue arthritis hero hat. My knees were really bothering me yesterday, so I'm really glad I had APL's hand to hold to finish the walk.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the walk to support the Arthritis Foundation!
