I will for the next 24 weeks be getting ready for my "Avon Walk" in June 2010. They say that if you write things down, you have commit yourself to the task. So here I am, writing my adventure down. This is the first time I have ever done anything like this, and hopefully I did not take on more then I can handle. Please pray for me as I go on this journey. I have been wanting to do this for awhile, and this is the year. If you do not know what this is about, you go on a 39 mile walk in two days, and you raise money for Breast Cancer awareness. I will be walking for four of my friends & family. I am so bless that they are all survivors of this horrible illness. I thank God everyday for them. And it begins...
Thank you all for your encouraging words and prayers!!! Just knowing that you are all out there to support me gives me hope! I love the way SP folks are always there to support each other, and once again here you are. I will be editing this post often to keep myself accountable. Today I go on a 3 mile brisk walk, and what a beautiful day to do it. The weather here in Colorado has been great. I think it will be up in the 50's today.
My training program will be to walk 4x per week, and x-train 2x per week. I will be following the "Avon Walk Training Program" for the next 24 weeks. (When the weather is bad, or I run out of daylight I will use Leslie Sansone's walking DVD's for my walks.)

I am almost half way to my goal! PTL!!!
I am so excited, I only have a little over $200.00 to reach my goal! I am learning so much about "walking" in faith. Everyday I learn something new. I am up to 6 miles now on my Sat. walks. Here are a few pictures of where I am walking most days, and one of Ginger, one of my Golden Ret., she is 4 mos old in this pic.
God has blessed me with raising my $1800.00 for my Avon walk though the help of my wonderful friends & family!! Thank You all for your support!!
Please continue to pray for me as I continue to train for my 39 miles.
