I have begun training for the San Diego leg of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure walk. Come November, I will walk 60 miles over the course of 3 days to help take a stand against breast cancer. I am super excited!
I actually registered for the walk 2 years ago. I talked my best friend into doing it with me. I started walking. But then I developed plantar facetious in my feet and it was excruciating to walk from my bed to my couch…much less train for a 60 mile walk. So I bowed out. My friend, however continued on with a new team and completed the walk. I was so happy for her but felt like a schmuck myself for not pushing through. I mean, women battling breast cancer don’t get to quit when something gets hard now, do they?
So, I’m back and trying it again. Only this time I won’t be quitting.
It’s no secret here that I’ve battled weight issues for a long time. I am using this 60 mile walk as my motivation to get in shape and get moving. I have three little boys that expect me to keep up with them and I can’t do that sitting on my couch. I’ll be sharing my training and fund raising efforts with you as well as my weight loss struggles. They go hand in hand.
Last night I went with my mom and walked 1 mile at our high school track. My first of many many miles. Considering I’ve been sitting for 6 months, it was really great to get out and do this!
So, whoohoo! Wish me luck!
