The first steps

Sunday, February 07, 2010

I finally did what I've been wanting to do for years - I signed up to walk in the Susan G. Komen 3-day walk for breast cancer. In August, I'll walk 60 miles in 3 days to raise money and awareness of breast cancer. I started training today - I walked 3 miles in 1 hour. It doesn't seem like much, but I feel like I just took the first steps in a pretty amazing journey.

I am walking in memory of three women that breast cancer took from me too soon - my grandmother (Nanny) in 1993 and two very dear friends Tacye (9/2009) and Georgia (1/2010). These beautiful women touched my life in so many ways and every step I take in the next six months will be for them. I miss them all so very much.
