What a great couple weeks!

I completely forgot to mention that last week has had several milestones in it for my journey.  Two Fridays ago, I got a call from one of my girlfriends letting me know that she finally bit the bullet and signed up to join my team while she could still take advantage of the $25 discount on registration they were offering!  I cannot tell you how thrilled it makes me to know that my little team of one is now a team of two.  Besides being incredible that I get to do this walk with one of my most awesome friends, I also felt a great sense of accomplishment when I updated the "Team fundraising goal" to reflect what Joanne is hoping to raise!  Wow.  That's a lot of money we've agreed to come up with.  How cool is that???  Our team webpage (which I still haven't updated from the basic layout) can be found at

Last week I broke the 200 mile mark in my training and today I broke the $3,000 mark in fundraising!  I spent 4 1/2 days at the State PTA convention and managed to get over 10 miles of walking in while I was up in Sacramento.  I was exhausted when I got back, so I took Monday and Tuesday off, but today I walked the kids to school and will walk again to pick them up.  Looking forward to trying another long training walk on Saturday and to helping Joanne get herself started with training and fundraising at some point this week!  Hope you all have a great one!
