March for Babies! belated

It's been nearly a month since I participated in a March of Dimes March for Babies with my coworker in lovely New Jersey. Shame on me for not reporting back sooner! Well, the event itself was only half the journey for me. Having never set foot in Jersey before, I was in for an early morning trek from Brooklyn. I woke up at 4:30 to a rainy, cold day, quickly readied myself in my walking gear, and headed to the subway, which I took to Penn Station. I cut it pretty close- had I been on the subway train 10 minutes later, I wouldn't have made the crucial connection to the PATH train that would get me to South Orange in time! I pretended I was on Amazing Race, frantically looking for the fastest way to my destination in order to avoid falling asleep on my feet. Once at the walk site, the rain really began to come down. Luckily, it only lasted long enough to thoroughly wake me up. Anyway, when all was said and done, I exceeded my pledge goal to the organization and raised $460!
Thank you so much, friends and family, for supporting me and March of Dimes!
