Hey there all!
My sister received in the mail today a postcard for an October walk to fight breast cancer. It's a 3-5 mile walk. I'm sure she'll be entering the walk again this year. But, I'm curious, do you think I should enter as well this year?
I think I will attempt it this year. I keep saying to myself every year that I will enter these walking events, but never do. Well, now that I'm trying to eat healthier and become healthier this year, I should train to do the walk as well.
Ok, then, I will begin to train for the walk! I'm not going to register yet, but will wait a couple of months to see how I'm doing first. Hmm, I wonder if I can raise money through my job...
Oh yeah, and one more thing: Does anyone know of a great sporting goods web site where I can purchase clothing for the event?
I've gone to, for example, the sports authority site looking for a pink long sleeved base layer top and there isn't any available (well, at least for my size anyway!). Since the event is in October and it's probably going to be chilly out then, I was thinking of just wearing a long sleeved base layer under a short sleeved t-shirt. If someone can offer me an alternative way to dress for the event, that'd be great too. I know it's just a walking event, but I would like to look "sporty" and not look like I just threw together anything, you know? haha :)
Yeah, I really should enter -- it's going for a great cause. And if I can train to do a 5 mile walk, it'll make it easy for me to train for a half marathon walk, which I really would like to accomplish as well!
Thank you for your advice!
