So lately? I'm figuring a lot of stuff out. It's pretty cool.
In doing so, Big Jim has encouraged me to start figuring out things that I want to do. I've spent a whole lot of years trying to make everyone else happy and while I still think that's good in some ways, in most ways? It pretty much sucks. Because I'm the one who ends up with the short end of the stick all the time.
Big Jim is helping me to understand that it's not selfish to want things for myself. Crazy, I know.
I mentioned recently that I'm walking. A lot. I plan on walking the 5k Komen Race for the Cure in October. And, I'm planning on walking in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in 2009. The 2 day walk.
I've decided that I will walk in the Charlotte event. In October, 2009. I picked Charlotte because my parents live in North Carolina and I thought I could somehow combine this with a visit with them. Plus, it's the latest one next year so it will give me 14 months to get ready.
I'm determined. I can do this. I can raise $1800. I can walk almost twenty miles in a day. Okay, I can't right now, but in 14 months? I so can.
Who's with me?
Is there anyone out there that wants to participate in the Charlotte Walk for Breast Cancer? Even if you are a fattie like me, dude. Seriously. We have fourteen months. It's totally doable.
I'm doing it no matter what. I'll be sending in my registration within a few weeks. I'm going to start my fundraising soon. I've got a training plan that I'm working. Slowly, but surely, I'm increasing my time with every walk. I'm gaining stamina and I'm losing weight.
I'm going to do it.
And if anyone wants in? Let me know.
