So I did it again!!! I signed up to walk in Avon walk for Breast Cancer. Yea call me crazy. I have no idea what I am thinking.
Ok maybe I'm thinking it will help keep me on track of my fitness goals. It will help keep me in shape. It will guide me and it will help the many people who are affected by the disease every few minutes. I really did enjoy walking a couple years ago. I just hope I can talk my good friend Jen into walking with me again. Yea she's gone right now at her sisters wedding so I haven't told her I signed up. I don't even know what came over me.
What happened was I got a mailing from Avon saying I could sign up for a discounted registration fee because I was a previous walker. Not that the money is always a factor but something came over me at that moment that made me want to do it again. Yea go through the fundraising and everything. CRAZINESS as its best! So on July 12-13 2008, I'll spend the weekend walking, along with thousands of other people, in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. I will be walking a marathon (26.2 miles). I'm also trying to raise $2500 in donations to the cause. I'll have to spend the next months training, fundraising, and preparing for the event. It's one of the best challenge I've taken on, but I'm very excited about doing it because I know it will make a real difference to the millions of people affected by breast cancer. So don't you want to help me find a cure!!! Click here to help support me!
SO the other thing I signed up for which is pure craziness too.
Nah kidding. Its my goal! I want to do the Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathon run next year in October 2008. Its the 8th of October to be exact. I said I was going to do it in 3 hours...well that was my estimate. I haven't exactly started training. I still technically walk/jog. Mostly walk and jog sometimes. But I have a 11 months to train. Yea its a good goal. Anyway I have high expectations for myself but I know I can over come and complete these goals!!! I will probably do a few trail runs before this long one. I will of course report back and tell you how I do.
