Once again it's that time folks.

I'm once again walking the Avon Walk. I'm walking and I'm asking you to donate here.

I walk because I can and I'm asking to donate what you can. Almost all of you have had breast cancer touch your life or the life of a friend, mothers, sisters, girlfriends, sons and husbands. Breast cancer SUCKS.

I'm going to spend two days walking, getting blisters, and hopefully not dehydrated again, because I can. Because I'm able to and because I can help. Please help me do that.

I have wanted to do this for the last couple years. Its the fund raising part that stops me. I hate asking people for money and I totally suck at it. Selling has never been my thing....even hated selling Girl Scout cookies as a kid.

Its the amount they require you to get pledged before you can walk that seriously intimidates me. That's a lot of money. I'm still trying to make up my mind/convince myself I can do this.

That's the reason I've wanted to do this....my mother has had a double mastectomy. Thing is, I don't know if I could come up with 45 people even....and not all of those could afford to give. Maybe that's what intimidates me the most...not having a large pool of people to ask from.

I have thought about crewing but completing the walk itself is a personal, physical challenge I want to achieve.

Are you walking DC? So am I! I'm waling with my mom and my aunt (her sister). I'm also working San Fransisco (Quick Stop F Team Leader). Have you started training yet?

Very very cool.

Last year I did the local ACS Strides walk on the Mall. Couldn't this year as the walk was on the same day as our wedding :|

Go you :D
