This morning the Hubster & I got to have a date!! It started earlier than any other date we have ever had! We got up at 4am to leave by 5am to drive to Dallas for the American Heart Association Heart Walk! Since we are on our way to becoming healthier, we thought it was the perfect way to keep us going!!
This is something his company participates in every year! The CEO believes strongly in this cause because his father died of heart disease! He has vowed to help get his company not only heart healthy but all around healthy!
It all started out in the building above!! They go out of their way to make every employee & families feel right at home!! We had food & water before the walk started along with lots of goodies to take home with us! It was so neat to see all of the levels of workers all in one place talking & mingling amongst each other!! Today, no one had a title. It was just normal people coming together for a great cause!! It was amazing to see!!!
After the walk they had different vendors that you could visit for free goodies!! There was a nice healthy lunch, all natural yogurt & smoothies for dessert, flu shots, wellness screenings (and don’t worry, there was licensed medical staff doing all of this. His company has a staff nurse that organizes it!). I got a much needed chair massage & so did the Hubster!
It was an all around great day!! It is not often we get to spend time just the two of us!! So, if I have to get up at 4am for that to happen then so be it!!! We are already planning next years walk! Can’t wait!!!
