In September, I will walk 60 miles in three days in the Susan G. Komen 3 Days for a Cure event. Yep, this is scary for me, considering I am a 50 year old woman who is at least 50 pounds overweight! And, I hate to exercise.
Not only is this goal extremely important to me, but it is extremely scary for me. Seriously? Walk 60 miles? Sleep in a tent? Roughing it for me any more is a hotel without room service!
My mama was a long term breast cancer survivor. Both of my sisters are breast cancer survivors. I can’t think of any better reason to face my fears than to benefit the fight against this disease.
I know it is going to be hard. It already is. I have to train to even reach a level of fitness to do the official training schedule!. Looking at my progress one day at a time will encourage me for the next day.
When I feel unmotivated and want to blow it off, all I need to do is think of my sisters and all that they went through to survive. That overcomes any fear I may have. Yes, it terrifies me when I think of this goal I set for myself, but I am going to do this!
