“So we are just leaving the unofficial first pit stop of the walk which would be the Starbucks right next to the Hyatt in North West DC, you guys know the one-- we go there ever so often on Tuesday night.

So, Anyway, I don't think they warned the Starbucky's that a large crowd of people coming, but anyway. Managed to have my battery die before I took my first picture.

They have taken us on a very convoluted route which has taken us close to Union Station, but not so much close enough for use to walk into it. Other than that we are doing pretty good. Tirzah is carrying the patients banner for the moment. Hope you guys are doing pretty good. Bye!”

“So here we are at the first Official pit stop, not the Starbucks, although there is a restraunt full of food. We are at the Canadian Embassy, there are lots of people here.

I stopped to check my feet because I thought I was starting to get a blister, but what I found was a loose string in my sock. So hopefully I will have stopped the problem before it actually started.

Other than that we are doing pretty good. We are not at the end of the pack, I'd say we are about the beginning of middle of the pack. I don't know where we will be at the end of the pit stop because Tirzah is of in the restroom line and I'm just waiting for her. Bye.”

“We're at pitt stop 3 the corner of O and 26th NW. This is mile 8. Um the pitt stop signs that say "you got a mile to go" "you got this much to go before lunch ect" lie like a rug and our bodies have figured out that we're not on a shopping trip and are really unhappy with us. Um but other than that we're doing pretty good. Ah we're stopping for a little while to have chips and peanuts and do that lovely stuff and try to get my hands to stop swellings quite as much as they are but we're doing really good. Um we'll try to post again later. Bye”

“Well, I made it to the corner of 33rd and Q, N.W. I was actually doing pretty good until they walked us down to Water St. and then walked us back up from Water St. This is all pretty much one big hill, and I was out of water before we got to Water St. They really need a pit stop there. I'm pretty much doing my thing. I sent Tierza on ahead. If I get to the point I think I can keep on going, I will; if I find a street van, I'll take that to lunch. Talk to you later. Bye.”

“So I made it 10.2 miles. Tirzah made it all the way to lunch - 12.5 miles. At that point we decided that if we wanted to walk tomorrow, we were done for today.

So we sat and watched "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" in the Bus while we were waiting for it to go back to camp. We are now at camp, looking at the most pathatic land pimple I've ever seen in my life. Well actually a sea of them. But ours is set up.
We have our bed, and everything else. We've managed to squeeze everything into this tiny little land pimple.

And now I'm probably going to end up rubbing a hideous amount of tiger balm into Tirzah ankles because they Suck... and Tirzah's calves as well.

BTW, leave a message for Rivka and Sas - "YOU GUYS SUCK" [lots of snickering in the background]. Thank you for talking us into doing this, it's uh.. an "Experience". Bye!”
