A few remarks from the walkers this morning as they broke down the pink tents, readied feet with moleskin, and packed up from camp:
“Always feel like we come home with more than we came with.” “Mother Vegas”, Beth Caron, Las Vegas, Nevada
“Tough! I’m exhausted. Excited to be done. Accomplished!” Jennifer Rosado
“Relief! Pain! Anticipation.” Isabel Guillen, Claremont, New Hampshire
“Awesome! Part of me is ready to be done…part is ready to be here forever with the pink people.” Abbie Vicknair, Nashville, Tennessee
“I feel fantastic! Ready for Cleveland!” Carl Benson, Wolcott, Connecticut
“I’m good. Awesome. Life is good. Let’s go!” Nealie Cirino, Wallingford, Connecticut
The mood is picking up as the walkers feel that today will be the end of their Susan G. Komen 3-Day® journey. They will travel many miles today through Harvard and MIT universities, through Boston Commons and the Financial District before turning south along the beaches to the Closing Ceremony.
