Well I did the deed. Tonight I registered for a Susan G. Komen walk in Dallas this November. We will walk 60 miles in 3 days.
I am a little intimidated by this. My mind begins to race. I wonder how I will train for this and what kind of shoes I will need. I know I will need good socks (socks are very important). And then I wonder - holy moly - what happens if it rains????
But then I step outside of myself for just a moment and look at what it all means. I think of my friends who have survived breast cancer - and of those who have not. I think of the grandchildren they never met and the hugs their daughters miss. I think of the struggle - of the emotions that come about when diagnosed. And then I think - 60 miles in 3 days? I can do this.
I used to be fit but I am not now. I am starting at zero and this November I will be walking 60 miles. Will you support me? I must raise at least $2300 to participate but I set my goal for $5000. I know we can reach that.
