  • Power went out at work today so I didn't get to get on at lunch.  I was really not that nervous about it because I kept rehearsing it in my head what I wanted to say until....

    Yesterday morning DH was like "I figured you would freak out about this, aren't you prepared, don't you have note cards, etc."  And then I freaked out!  I did end up writing note cards yesterday which were good to have.

    The speech went much better then I imagined it would.  I kept it going and didn't suture too much. I was talking about my experience being diagnosed with Crohn's disease and how I eventually dealed with it and how the running program helped with that and why we need to raise money.  A lot of people mentioned to me how they could relate, a lot of people wanted advice on how to get their loved one's to the place I am at and some people even asked me to come give the speech again to another crowd, so it could have not been that bad! 

    Yesterday afternoon I really didn't want to do it, but I am glad I did.  Good to do something outside of the box once and awhile.  Thanks for asking!
