|Her busted little hand, still smiling!|
The day before the Care Walk, Mailyna & I were actually in a Kaiser ER, after she sliced her hand on the fence. It's a ridiculous story that I'll skip, but gladly, she didn't need stitches or a tetanus, they just wrapped it up after giving it a nice cleaning. That girl I tell ya!!
So bright & early Sunday morning, I planned on running over to the San Leandro Marina to scope out a spot & wait for everyone else. Plans rarely every go through perfectly & this one surely gave me a mini panic attack. I guess I didn't do my research & just figured a walk around the Marina wouldn't be THAT big of a deal... boy was I wrong! At 845am, the Marina was PACKED!! There was people everyone, no parking & a 5K set up that day as well. I had my girls with me, parking was ridiculous & couldn't wander around looking for somewhere to set up... thankfully, my soon to be brother in law was also there to lend a hand! He was literally a life saver! We snagged a prime location, 2 tables & everything slowly fell into place.

|Walk it out!|
We started our walk at about noon with 17 adults & 8 kids! Everyone made it around at least once, which was the equivalent of a mile. Many of the kids dropped off at the 2nd go around just because it was such a great day & they were anxious to place or hang out by the water... but they were doing so much running around that I know they took more than the 3 miles the rest of us did!
