One month to my AVON walk. I have raised $1100 so far. I don’t think that’s bad. I’m making a last big push before the end of the month. Personal goal: $1800. I’ve asked a few more people at work.
Maybe next week, I’ll wear my AVON walk T-shirt through the streets of town and see if I can’t get any support like that. Maybe, I should make my own T-shirt. I could write a question or something on the front of the T-shirt. Something like: What do you and Victoria Secret have in common? And, on the back, I could say: You both support beautiful, healthy breasts. I would get a donation or two out of that for sure.
Maybe, I’ll wear my bra on the outside of my shirt–or around my waist. That would be funny. Hmmm… Maybe, I’ll get dressed up tomorrow night and go out on the town. I could solicit donations at the local pubs. Yeah. Maybe I’ll do that. I wonder how much I’ll raise that way? AND–It will make an interesting blog story. Hmmm. You’re going to have to tune in for that.
Regarding my training progress: Up until last week, I was logging between 15 and 20 miles a week. That felt very good. Last Saturday I walked 3 miles down the mountain (Sonoma Mountain) and jogged back up. At the end, I also did a leg-butt workout. My legs were sore for four days after that, but it felt good anyway.
Yesterday, Pam in Kentucky called me out of the blue. She is a friend of a friend who donated to my cause. She was just calling to congratulate me on my efforts (which I really appreciate) and she called at the most opportune time. I was on my way to meet our mutual friend (Waitman), but because I’d just changed phones, I didn’t have his phone number to call him to tell him I was going to be a bit late. So–out of the blue, Pam phones me. I’ve never talked to this person before in my life, but she was the exact person I needed to talk to at that time AND, she had Waitman’s phone number.
I like serendipitous moments like that, like there is order in this great big chaos of life. Like someone is watching out for you and making sure you have everything you need at just the right moment in time. I’m going to believe in that for a bit–that there a right reason, a right time, and a right place for everything.
I was just popping by the blog to see how everything was going. I am so excited for you that you hit you goal! That has to feel GREAT!
I was so surprised to see myself in your entry and so happy too. I totally believe in the order of the universe and I am glad that you felt it in that way!
I am going to be thinking of you throughout your big day! Best of luck, you are touching so many.
