Watch My Television Interview on Sunday!

I got an email yesterday from the Energizer® Keep Going® Blogger representative asking me if I would be available for a LIVE television news interview on Sunday morning. I think I threw up a little. I mean.  I knew this was a very real possibility when I took on the role of the Keep Going® […]

Keep Going Julie!

Julie is captain of Team Girlapalooza in San Diego.  She is a walking and fund raising rockstar!  I can’t wait to meet her at the San Diego walk (four more weeks! eek!).  I’m so happy she took the time to give us a glimpse into the life of a career 3 Day walker.  She certainly […]

Training Continued

We are 5 weeks out from the San Diego Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure walk.  FIVE WEEKS PEOPLE!  Holy cow, where has the time gone?  This weekend they are walking in Philadelphia (Go Philly!).  Things are just buzzing right along but I feel lost and left out. Having a broken foot sucks. […]

I Hate This Walk

With October being breast cancer awareness month, I want to try and bring you some more personal stories from others who have been working so hard to fight this dreadful disease.   This story was posted originally on the Susan G Komen 3 Day for the Cure walker forums.  It was written by Larry, who has […]

This Boot Is Made For Walking

I had a recheck today with my Orthopedist (whatchamacallit) today and she went over my official MRI results from last week.  My official diagnosis is:  Nondisplaced fracture at the superior proximal corner of the navicular bone. Um, yeah.  Ok.  That’s pretty much Greek to me. But I did find out that the navicular bone is […]

Well, Ain’t This a Darn Shame

Turns out, I DO have a stress fracture. Big fat bummer. My regular doctor did x-rays a couple weeks ago and no breaks showed up.  But my foot still hurt, and seemed to be getting worse.  So I asked, “if it’s not a stress fracture, then what is it?”  So off to an Orthopedic specialist […]

Fund Raising With Rubio’s!

On the 1st of this month, we had a fund raiser dinner at our local Rubio’s.  They have this great program that will get your non-profit organization 20% of all sales donated to your cause.  This was such an easy event and if you are fund raising for anything, I suggest you check them out. […]

BINGO for Boobies!

We had our BINGO for Boobies party last night and it was a BLAST!  There was a great turn out of enthusiastic bingoer’s (I know that’s not a word…but whatever).  This was a really fun and more importantly, a  profitable event.  At the end of the night, we raised over $900.00 for the Susan G. […]

Walking and Fundraising and Walking, oh My!

Quick Recap in case you missed it:  I have a mysterious pain in my right foot.  It’s the top of my foot, in line with my big toe.  All indicators suggest a stress fracture, but my doctor took X-rays and told me it’s “fine.”  So I spent about 10 days off of it “resting” and […]
