#38: Walking A Marathon (Also Known As OMG, I’m On Crack)

I have done it. I have registered for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. A marathon and a half. WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING?

It’s funny, I mean, I have 1001 days to do all this stuff, and here I am signing up now to do this walk in June. I guess the plus side to that is that for the rest of my days beyond that, all the hard stuff is done – I can kick back reading my classics, drinking my mojitos (til I find that PERFECT recipe), getting bikini waxes and just being relieved that I’m done with the hardcore stuff.

When I was planning my list, someone on Twitter told me about this walk and even invited me to join her team (which is awesome because she doesn’t even know me – just knows that I am the QUEEN OF COOKIES). I’ve actually spent awhile debating internally whether or not I wanted to do this – not because the distance scared me, but because the fundraising aspect was a little scary.

But, it’s for a good cause and I’ve got some ideas for fundraising (all of them are legal in all fifty states, so don’t go getting too excited). Minutes after sending my very first plea for support, I got an email from Avon telling me someone had contributed towards my goal. And now I’m 3% towards achieving my goal. It seems a little less scary in bite size pieces.

I guess now it’s on me to get myself in shape so I don’t keel over and look like a wuss baby. Sure, I’m in shape, but the most I’ve ever walked in a day was 15 miles and though I’m in better physical shape now than I was then, I have to say, a marathon and a half over two days in Chicago in June? Some of you must think I’ve been sniffing glue.

And since you’re here reading about it anyway, why don’t you go click over to my page on Avon’s site and support me 😉
