Taking the Long Road

Self

One women's tale of how training to walk 60 miles for Breast Cancer research changed her.


We are 2 weeks away from the October 12th Opening Ceremonies. I will say that I am very nervous. Yes, I am worried about things like blisters, dehydration, and just plain failing. But I’m sure that there will be harder things for me to endure between now and the day I take my last breath. Life is like that. So, you have to keep going. Good or bad. I keep walking. Fast or slow, it doesn’t matter. Just don’t stop.
John Wayne said, “Courage is being scared to death but showing up anyway.” Well, I’m showing up and putting on my walking shoes. I’m going to walk the treads off of those shoes if I have to. I will not stop.

 

Stay tuned for my entry AFTER the walk... I may need a nap first though.
