Relay for Life

I'm back from the 24-hour Relay for Life event drewsifer invited me to attend and participate in. For completeness, it is an annual fundraising event for the American Cancer Society featuring a 24-hour team relay walk.

I will probably post a more complete report later, but I'm really just checking in right now. I've gotten a little bit of rest/sleep in since I arrived home around 5 this afternoon, but I'm still pretty exhausted. Right now I just want to say that I had a great time with great friends gathering together to help support a great cause...can't ask for too much more than that!

I very much enjoyed having the time (lots and lots of time...) to be with some of the people that I've grown close to over the past couple years as well as get to know some new ones. It was a great opportunity to get to know a little better and enjoy the company of these people that I otherwise only see for a few hours once a week...or less.

Thanks for a really great day (and by day, I mean a *whole* day) and I look forward to seeing you all again soon. More details to follow once I've recovered a bit more...
