Walking for a different reason now!!!
Friday, March 18, 2011
Some of you know I am participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer this April in Houston. I decided to do it as a challenge to myself at first. Last year I could barely walk a mile with out being in pain or panting!! So I thought what a great way to challenge myself and also raise money for a great cause. I mean 39.3 miles in 2 days...wow!! And the training would just help me with my healthy lifestyle goal.
Well yesterday I found out I am walking for a new reason. My mother had a biopsy last week and it has come back positive. I don't really want to walk for a reason but now I must!! The good news is that she has lived in New York for the last 6 years...well she is coming home! She'll be close so I can help! I'm happy about that but sad it is under these circumstances!!! So now I have a new reason to raise as much as I can and to train to walk this!! I may even walk more this year! Cancer is an evil disease and if what I do makes a difference then that will be awesome!! Anyway, thank you all for listening to me. It's just hit me hard and I needed to write it out!
