I need to buy some new walking shoes to get them broken in but I guess that has to wait. I am hopeful that maybe the hubby will get a new job at some point and I can afford to go get some specially fitted for the walk. As I understand it, on long walks, your feet swell so you want the shoes a little big and you want to wear well padded socks that wick away moisture to prevent blisters.
Im actually pretty excited about the walk this year....it has long been a goal of mine but I admit Im a little saddened that more people do not donate to this cause. I can't help but think of a good friend whose daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer (in her twenties) and another friend whose daughter was diagnosed and has 2 young children. We need to find a cure for this disease and the only way to do that is through research and the only way to fund research is through donations...........I guess people think that if you can't donate hundred of dollars then why bother but the truth is, ever little bit counts.
So here is to training for the walk, raising money for the cause and hoping to someday help people BEAT Breast Cancer.
