I'm training and fundraising for the Avon Walk again this year, and I'm not going to lie to you: IT KINDA SUCKS. Walking 15 miles in the rain is not really fun. Asking my friends and relatives for donations is really hard for me (and really pushes my boundaries). Spending my weekends walking for hours upon hours (upon hours) and then standing in front of Wal-Mart with my teammates asking strangers for donations is not in the top ten of my list of Ways I'd Like to Spend a Weekend--it's not even in the top 25.
I did this walk last year, so I knew what I was getting myself into. So why am I doing this again?
This photo says it all; I took it during the walk last year. I just happened to be walking behind this lady and I couldn't resist taking a photo... I had tears in my eyes and I wanted to remember the moment. Breast cancer is still taking lives, so I'm going to spend my weekend walking in the rain and standing in front of Wal-Mart, asking for donations. Wish me luck.
