Almost Walkin’ Time

Todd and I are nearly all packed up and ready for our three day adventure. The hardest part right now is making sure our duffel bags don’t weigh any more than 35 pounds. Sounds easy, but when you have to put in a sleeping bag and an air mattress (because I’m NOT sleeping on the ground) it adds up.

October is usually such a beautiful month and a perfect time for walking six or sixty miles. Right? Except we’re expecting a nor’easter this weekend.

No biggy. What’s a little water and low temps compared to a cure for cancer? That’s what I keep telling myself anyway.

How about these encouraging words on the white board calendar at work?

And this is to let everyone know why I won’t be at work on Monday.

Thanks, Kelly!! :o)

    Good luck!! Just finished my walk in the Relay for Life this past weekend. Had a great turnout, and met my goal, so I was happy.Have a great time, and enjoy yourself while you make tired feet for the cause 🙂

    You go, girlfriend! Do a little celebratory "Shackles" happy dance while you're there, too. 😉

    Good Luck! We'll be thinking of you both. Looks like you need to get a poncho though, helps to keep you drier (they were always handy in Scouts, and light).
