The MiniMed pump skin lizard wished us well and we started the walk.
We ran as much as we could but it was REALLY HOT! It was about 86 degrees in West Palm by 10 AM when we started. We were walking right on the intracoastal though, so it was beautiful and there was a nice breeze. You can see the water behind me in the picture at the bottom of this post. Notice how I am walking one direction and the people in the background are walking in the other. We actually finished just behind the pace car!
I spent a little time talking to the MiniMed rep. More on that in a later post. While I was there I met a family of 4 pumpers. The dad and three of his children all pump! Wow, that’s gotta be some good insurance!! My the time I was done talking with the rep, the activities were pretty much over. We walked back to the school and went our separate ways.
It was a great day and a good first JDRF experience. I look forward to participating again next year and setting my fundraising goal even higher!
