Weekend To End Breast Cancer

On the weekend of June 5th and 6th, hundreds of men and women, both supporters and survivors, will band together to participate in the Weekend to End Breast Cancer. For many, a two day walk, totalling 60 kms will be achieved. For myself, I will be participating in the 30 km, 1 day walk, to be held on the 5th. Together we will hold our heads high and band together to raise money for this great cause. If you would like to join me in this journey, I would love to form a team. Together we can make a difference! (registration is $75.00. In order to participate in the 1 day walk, you must raise $1250.00. For the two day walk, the amount is $2000.00. Click here for event details.)
To help with the training process, I have jumped on the Donna Downey/Tanya bandwagon (she read about it on Donna's site, I read about it on hers). While the two of them belong to Map My Run, I have become a member at Map My Walk. Hopefully this tool will provide me with some great assistance as I train for this grand event. Wish me luck.

yayyy for you Mellisa. This is a wonderful cause and a great challenge. My advice is to set up a routine - walk two or three times a week building up distance and / or speed each time. Take it slow to start and keep your commitment to yourself. Don't let other things get in the way. Treat it as an appointment for you and just do it!
