As of this morning, I’ve reached my goal for the Avon Walk!  It’s not reflected on the site yet, but as soon as the checks I’m mailing today register, I’ll be above 100% of my goal, baby!  I’ve been blown away by the generosity of friends and family near and far during this fundraising effort.  And I’m truly thankful for the support, I had no idea I’d reach the goal so quickly.

Of course, since we are a team, we are fundraising together and can still use a few more donations, so don’t be shy!  Every little bit helps!

Everyone on the team has started walk training.  Last weekend was 10 miles on Saturday, 6 miles on Sunday.  It felt awesome to be out there knocking down some major miles.  I think I’ll for sure have a farmer’s tan perfected by the end of this.  To aid with training, I recently purchased a camelback and a new iPod nano.  Walking for hours is actually pretty fun when you’ve got the jams on.  I felt like Richard Simmon’s last weekend… sweatin’ to my oldies!  I’ll do a blog post soon about the tunes I’m listening to during these long walks, y’all know how I love to talk about music. 

That’s all I got for now.  Thanks to everyone for their support – you really have no idea how much it means!  Go Team Walkin’ For Our Assets!
