. . . because when one watches that gigantic pink ball coming up in the sky . . .
. . . when ones thinks about all the love, and all the work, and all the awesome people, who have put all the effort into getting the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Walk, 2012 style, out there in the world . . .
. . . this world . . .
. . . well, then one can get out there and start to make the 26.2 miles of magic happen.
But not yet.
Because first, while that gigantic sun is still rising . . .
. . . first one *must* warm up . . .
. . . one must, when one's about to walk 26.2 miles . . .
. . . and then, well, then the 300+ walkers get out there to raise money that goes directly to breast cancer research and it's so good, this foundation is so good, and one is out there, out there in the sunrise, out there walking a marathon, for breast cancer research . . .
Once upon a glass or twelve of wine, Jacquie and Beth and Ellie got to talking. We decided that we were all enormously smart and clever and hilarious, and that it would be a crime not to share our unique talents with the world. We decided to start a blog together.
We needed a name, so Jacquie asked Beth: “What should we call a blog about meand you and Ellie?” And the rest, as they say, is history. We are having a blast writing this thing, and if there was any trepidation that we were only smart and clever and hilarious that night because of all the wine, our words here thus far have succinctly affirmed our mutual self-admiration.
