As many of you know, I will be doing the Breast Cancer 3 day walk this August with my friend Debra, so we had some training walking to do this past weekend. Saturday was a 10 mile walk, Monday was a 6 mile walk. The breast cancer 3 day is a 3-day, 60 mile walk to support breast cancer research. We each have to raise $2300 for the walk - so as a side note, if you can donate - I would greatly appreciate it!
Since I no longer have an impending wedding to plan...I will periodically post updates about our training walks. I could post the ones that are something like this, "This weekend we walked 16 miles. It was long. It was nice outside. We liked the trees".
I am much more likely however to post updates such as this:
While walking this weekend Debra and I devised a plan. Lie. I devised a plan which Debra was thrilled with. This is what we would do....we would send an email our to our friends and family. We need places to walk for training - so we would ask who wanted us to walk to their house. We would walk to their house (minnetonka, south minneapolis, golden valley, maple grove (okay maybe we'd drive part of the way and walk the rest)) and then they would make us lunch once we arrived!
"How excited they would be!" Kara proclaimed
"They may even decorate for us! Pink streamers perhaps" Debra exhalted
"They will make our favorite foods and will be cheering for us when we arrived" Kara asserted.
A flawless plan. How excited everyone will be that we will walk to their house.
Fast forward about an hour. Jeremy, Alex and Abby pick us up from Texa Tonka (where we walked to). We told them about our nice walk, and then led into our new plan. Jeremy looked at me quizically. Alex looked a bit astounded. Abby started laughing. Jeremy bursts out, "That is the worst plan I have ever heard. Why would they make you lunch because you walked to their house? Why will they be so excited?!"
Kara and Debra: "Uh, they'll be excited because we walked there"
Kara and Debra: "We swear, it seemed like an outstanding idea around mile 9 today"
Those will be the more likely updates. I promise there will be more. And, on the off chance you would like us to walk to your house, we would love lunch. Just as long as its not tuna fish. We both hate tuna fish.
If you can donate, anything you can give would be appreciated. This is an amazing cause which has touched of our lives. Please donate or I'll stop blogging. Ohhhhh....threat!!!!
