It’s here. Tomorrow starts the official count down to the walk. Tomorrow starts the official training schedule. I am so excited. I am so ready for this. The first couple weeks should be a breeze but then miles start stacking up quickly. My game face is on! I am determined to rock this walk.
And 8 weeks! EIGHT WEEKS. That’s like two months. I’ve been doing this accountability thing for two whole months and it’s working.
I’ve talked before about how easily I tend to give up on things. I have to say I am very happy with how consistent I have been. Sure, there are weeks where I haven’t kept pace but looking back on the last 8 weeks I have been pretty steady.
Every time I contemplate trading in my sneakers for the couch I think about my mom and how this is more than just a walk. This is more than just raising money to beat breast cancer. This is a promise I made to her. This is a promise to keep fighting, to keep walking in her name. It makes tying those laces a little bit easier.
