March of Dimes 2014 ▬ Reston, VA | #WeekendRecap

We did it! I’m a proud owner of 6 March of Dimes walks under my belt. I’ve raised over $5,000 in 6 years. As a solo walker, that’s awesome! Didn’t do as well as I wanted this year, next year I’ll be ready. Going to do a lot more fundraisers that’s for sure. With that said. Here’s some pictures from the walk! First, the top walkers..

March of Dimes 2014 ▬ Reston, VAI believe was this family in the green shirts, I have in the one picture. They walked for their two baby girl twins who were born at 20 weeks, they weighed 9.2 oz & 9.7 oz.. Tiny tiny angels.. Once they all reached their sign during the walk.. they all broke down crying, taking pictures with the sign. It was truly heart breaking. I should of joined their team, to help them reach their goal. Except I made my own group in HOPES John would help raise money.. but NO, no he didn’t.. sigh.. Overall the walk was really good. Minus the blister on my toe I got & the top of my other foot, I have a pinched nerve.. oh and being out of shaped surely didn’t help the cause, lol.. next year I’ll be ready.. Before we started walking, we noticed they had “baby feeding/diaper changing” tents.. the other walks never had those.. so I was able to breastfeed Jacob before we started, which was really neat! Let me mention the fact, there’s at least 2,000 people walking.. and they had us all on small sidewalks, back paths, like they have behind apartments, definitely not made for strollers and large groups of people, lol..
March of Dimes 2014 ▬ Reston, VAAt the half way point, John took Jr, Jacob & Hannah.. and left me with Hailey.. They were 1.5 miles ahead of us.. like always.. oh well, I walk too slow, I surly wasn’t going to rush myself.  Should of brought some hiking shoes.. oh you know what I did forget.. SUNBLOCK! Pale people’s best friend!

I have to say of all the March of Dimes Walks, this one had the best food.. SUBWAY!! 6in subs for like 2000+ people INSANE! I had 2, they were that good.. or I was just that hungry. For the record, someone stole Mile #3 sign, so everyone was confused on that one. lol but WE DID IT! Food Time 🙂 Jacob has done 2 MOD Walks and he hasn’t even turned 1 yet! Okay time for some pain killers, because my back hurts more than it usually does.. and off to bed.. I forgot I’m going with Jr to school on Wednesday to the National ZOO in DC. YAY for more walking :/

Spread the love

  1. Looked to me like you had a fun Day Natalie! A walkers best friend Subway! love those myself!

    I remember taking part in the BRMB Birmingham Walkathon 20+ years ago 3 times over 3 years, 24 miles walking what is known as the number 11 bus route!
    I did raise a lot for the UK Aids charity though.

    Talk about blisters though! It still goes on though but people these days are not up for the 24 miles I did! instead it’s now only 11 miles!

    All the best Natalie!

    1. shoot I’ll take a 4.2 mile over 24 any day.. then again, I would have to be more fit like Franc to do a 24 mile haha

  2. What a wonderful charity! My husband used to play on a softball team that did fundraisers every year for the March of Dimes where they dressed up as women and played softball it was alot of fun!

    1. good luck with your run! I totally walked.. I was walking with an already sore foot.. so I’m just happy I finished..

  3. Such a worthy cause for a walk! Yep, you should have practiced, but looks like you did a great job. I love Subway’s all-veggie subs!
