Sometimes I wonder if I was crazy to do commit to the Avon Walk.
Four kids who demand my time 24/7. My own writing and job hunting. A husband who wished I would look his way now and then. Who has time to fundraise for a cause, let alone train for a marathon? Last week I did 17 miles. It’s Friday, but already I’ve clocked 18 miles. I hope to sneak in a few more over the weekend. The time commitment is the toughest for me. If I could show up and walk, wear a pink hat and some ribbons, I’d be great.
But the pre-Walk commitment is more challenging than I thought. Michelle has surpassed my fundraising already…I expected that. After all, she knows more people than I do! But still, I am worried that I’m only at 10 percent of my goal. Will I make my numbers, walking or money? Only time will tell.
I hope visitors in A Mom’s World will consider checking out this worthy cause. No one has extra money these days. But, I always remind myself, cancer doesn’t notice if there’s a recession or not.
My mammogram is in a few weeks. I am so lucky I am not walking entirely for myself.
