If Blogging Was My Job, I'd Be Fired By Now

Ok, so it's been almost a month again since I've blogged (which, by the way, what kind of dorky word is blog anyway?). I'm sure if you look in the geeked-out, social media dictionary (which I'm confident some Star Trek/Wars junkie wrote in their infinite spare time on a Saturday night) under the phrase "lame blogger", there's a picture of me. I'm sure of it.

But wow, what a month it's been! I've not only met, but surpassed, my minimum goal of $2300! I am oh so grateful to all of my friends and family who have generously donated! I am already cooking up ideas for a massive thank you party at my house when the walk has been completed in October. And I am very fortunate to be teamed up with such a fantastic group of nine women who have raised over $15,000 for breast cancer research. A small, but mighty group. Some of my teammates have not yet reached their goal, so if you've been wanting to donate, donate to them! It all goes to the same great cause.

I'm continuing to do my training walks, which are somewhat brutal during this summer heat.
But when I'm walking my mind returns to the display board, which I look at often, that has the "Who Were Walking For" names and photos on it, and I'm humbled all over again to have the opportunity to do my part to find the cure in their honor. And sadly, some, in their memory.
