So this Raven broke her ankle four and a half weeks ago. Thank goodness this crazy gathering is still just under three weeks away, allowing for a bit more healing time.
But it did make a slight change to our plans. All of us had signed up to do a 5k run in the Mayo Midnight Marathon after I had taken up running this winter and had given myself a challenge to be able to run 5k straight by summer. I was incredibly upset that I wasn’t going to be able to do the run and wasn’t sure what could be done since we had already paid our fees to participate.
In the end, we all decided that we will still do it, but make it as fun as possible! Instead of running the 5k, we will don our crazy garb (bearded lady hats, capes, dyed shirts, wild undies, etc) and we will walk the route making it as entertaining as possible. I am not entirely sure if I will be able to walk 5k by that point, but I am hopeful since I have been without crutches the last couple of days and am doing my best to hobble around. Maybe I should just bring a wheel barrow and the other Raven’s can take turns pushing me!
So if you see a group of 5 ladies walking in the craziest get-up you have seen, don’t call the cops! Just come and take our picture instead.
