Training


I registered for the breast cancer 3-day in Tampa this year! I even got a new pair of tennies and started training today. I was lucky enough to find some nice asics gel-frantic 3 shoes on clearance at Kohls. Now I just need to hunt down a second pair. Sunday this week was a 3 mile walk in 1 hour. When I set out it was more of an experiment than anything, because I wasn't sure if I would be able to walk that far, let alone walk that far in an hour. It was surprisingly easy though. I didn't really have any troubles with the pace or the distance. Hopefully I won't be changing my tune in the morning! I guess just because I am fully padded that doesn't mean that I'm not able to haul all this weight around. Hopefully all this walking and training will help me shed a lot of the extra pounds I have added on. I did however develop a few small blisters that I will have to deal with before I push myself too far. From what I have heard blisters are the mortal enemy of the 3-day walker. Hopefully I will get my battles with the blisters over with before October. If any of my dear blogging friends out there would be willing to donate towards my $2300.00 goal I will be forever grateful!!! Just visit the link in my sidebar, and follow the directions from there.

Those shoes are awesome. Good for you for such a lofty goal. I love the look of your blog. I usually don't like black backgrounds because they're hard to read, but with the pink type, it's really easy to read. Very Pretty!

You go girl!! Love the new look of your blog! Sorry I didnt' get to call you this past weekend while in town - it was a bit of a whirlwind. I will definitely give you a call the next time!

As for your blisters, see if you can find moleskin (it's not really a moles' sking - no worries). You can put it on your blisters and it will help with the pain and to protect them while you walk. Hikers use it...

You are taking on an amazing task! I'm so very proud and excited for you!

I will send you some interview questions real soon. I've been horrible about getting around to blogs lately. My apologies!

I love the new layout!
