Thanks for the concern about the shin. The bruise is just about gone, and there is only minor pain when my shin bone is pressed. Maybe the bone was bruised, I don't know, but it is just about gone so I am thankful.
The HBBC Walk(Jog)athon went well. I think 10 laps equalled 1 mile--I jogged 101 laps(Someone else did 100 so I had to do 101. Unfortunately, I told him as I was leaving the campus, so he went back and did 2 more--rats!). It turned out to be a gorgeous day, and I felt great the whole time. Considering I hadn't really ran for 2weeks prior and no more than 6 miles at one time for the previous month, I was happy with 10 miles.
I could have kept going for several more miles I am sure, but seing that every one else was gone after the 2 hours I was out there, I felt kind of awkward running laps out there all alone. Anyway, I didn't raise much (just over $100) dollars, but it was a blast--and the peanut butter cookies I ate when I was done were to die for!!!
