I was a hot mess when all was said and done, 90+ minutes of constant movement will do that to a person, but I was feeling confident that I would be no worse for the wear. After the event, as we did last year, we all gathered at a local Mukwonago restaurant and enjoyed dinner and drinks -- we earned a treat after all of our hard work, and the drink of our people was the perfect treat. I think we burned even more calories as we laughed until our stomachs ached while we waited for our meals (I'm glad stories of my fashion choices -- and choices I maintain were actually not of my choosing -- and the mom-enforced boy haircut kept us entertained). The drive home was a good one as I had two riding buddies to chat with, but as soon as I was alone in the car, I felt the Zumba effects. I was sleepy, and by the time 7:30 rolled around, I was downright exhausted and ready for bed. I struggled to make it to 9pm and then I slept quite nicely.
Thanks, Jenna, for your hard work and for the invite. As much fun as it is for us, I know it's a lot of work for you. You're making a difference, a big one, by investing your time and energy in supporting such a significant cause...and you're keeping us active in the process.
