9 Weeks Out

It's been a while since I posted, hasn't it?  The start of my son's school and my duties as PTA President have made the last few weeks a crazy busy time.  I did manage to get in to see my new doctor and while I like her MUCH better than my previous one, she was not interested in sending me to see a Podiatrist.  I'm a bit bummed by this, but am at the point where I'll just do what I can in the time I have left before the walk and do as much as I can of the walk when I get there.

On a positive note, this morning, I did a 4.5 mile walk and had almost no pain at all.  I'm encouraged by that and hope to be able to build up from there.  I really feel so wonderful when I am out walking and I have missed it.  It's so peaceful and gives me time to let my thoughts really do what they need to do so that by the time I'm done with the walk I feel more focused, renewed and ready to face the crazyness that is my life at the moment.  I do have to say that the fact that I am only 9 weeks away from the actual event has gotten me a bit frazzled.  I really need to pick up the last of my gear, get my packing list settled so that I'm not running around like a chicken with my head cut off at the last minute.

I also have had four more donations to my account in honor of my birthday earlier this month.  Instead of gifts, I asked people to spend what they would have spent on donations to Komen.  I'm still hoping that I can perhaps raise a bit more before November.

So nothing earth shattering to report and no super wise words.  Just that I'm keeping going with the cards I've been dealt and am really looking forward to experiencing the San Diego walk in just over 2 months.
