The countdown begins..

First things first... check out that button to the right there ===================>>>
The one that says Susan G. Komen 3-day-walk and click on it!!! It will take you to a fabulous page where you can make a donation to help me "earn my stripes" before embarking on a 60-mile walk over 3 days this coming October in Atlanta, GA. I'd really appreciate any help you can give. I'm not a great fundraiser (that may be why my daughter's PTA just gets a check from me each year instead of a form filled out with wrapping paper orders), so the thought of having to raise over $2000 is a bit daunting to me. Eek!

But all that aside, I'm thoroughly enjoying the challenge that this walk is bringing to my life. Other than pregnancy and my wedding, I can't think of any other time that I had to plan this far in advance for something. It's refreshing with a bit of mystery. The refreshing part is that I have something major to work towards, and the mystery part is if I can actually do it.
I'll bet you $1 that I make it!

I've been training with different folks. I've trained alone, with my sister, with my Dad, and with another woman who is registered for the Atlanta walk. I'm glad to have found her, because honestly, if I'm going to share a tent with someone for 3 nights, I'd rather know them first!

All of this to say that I would greatly appreciate any and all forms of support, whether it's by financial donation, prayers, or general wishes of well-being sent my way. I've logged 31 miles in training thus far. I've got the socks, I'm saving up for some sweet shoes, and I've got the gumption to get this done.

459 days left. Countless miles to go.
