Typically on Saturday, I do my long hikes (those that are 10-15 miles). Today, however, we only did 3.5. Matt Reed with KCEN tagged along today to report on what Miles 4 RSS is and why I am hiking/walking 1000 miles. It was wonderful having him along. I won’t lie, I was nervous but Matt made me feel at ease. Hiking with a video camera along was rather unusual, but I became comfortable pretty quick with it. Little did Matt know, this would be mine and Jerry’s last hike together, at least for the next 9 months, as he deployed later that night.
If you would like to log your miles, please head over to the Miles For 3CR RSS Soldiers Facebook Page.
And a huge thank you to Matt for taking this picture of us during the hike! It is a picture that we will always treasure! You definitely helped us make a memory today!
UPDATE (I didn’t want to post this due to OPSEC, but now that he has left I can say this): This was our last hike together for 9 months! Matt Reed took this picture of us when he did the news story. He had no idea that later that evening, is when my husband would leave for 9 months! Thank you Matt for taking this picture and sharing my story. And to my husband Jerry Carlson, I love you to infinity and beyond and am counting down the days (and miles lol) until you return home to us!
