Today I am a bit nervous. See...tomorrow I am walking a 5K for the Donor Alliance. Good cause and the exercise will do me good. No one in my family would accompany me, so I have decided to do it anyway alone. There will be many people, so I won't really be alone. But large events with many people make me kinda nervous. I did really well with jury duty and I am bound and determined to do this. I don't care if I finish dead last and hours after everyone else....as long as I eventually do finish. I'm sure that you can all relate to the strange nervous type of anticipation that I am experiencing. It's something that I want to do and I will make myself come Hell or high water, just so that I can prove to me that I can do this....but that does not mean that I will not be afraid. I was comforted today though. I saw an article about the walk/run in the paper today and the young lady whose mother began this walk selected the turtle as the mascot to be on the shirts. YES....again with the turtles! She said that it was because her daughter loved turtles because 'they stick their necks out for each other.' So I am gonna try to take some kind of turtle with me...even if I have to print a copy of a pic from online and put it in my pocket. That way I will know that my tribe is with me. Well...thanks ever so much for letting me vent....I will let you know how it went tomorrow after I return home victorious!
