On our way to the 3-DAY!

On our way to the 3-DAY!

Last weekend, I completed my second official walk (actually my third, if you count the midafternoon walk I did, in the neighborhood of my job) and what a great day it was outside. There was everything from runners with those tricycle strollers thingamajigs to crazy skater ladies dancing in the middle of the action to her own beatless rhythm of course. I did have a walking buddy along, shout out to Ms. Marjorie (although not on the team, her sweet nickname is going to be ……”Ms. Goodbar”, I like it). We did about 4 miles, and it was great because we strategized how our cars would be set up, so that we could walk for 4 miles straight and not have to double back at the 2 mile mark! EXCELLENT, and highly recommended, who wants to see the same scenery twice? Unless, there was just something extra special…..I mean it is almost spring, LOL…..almost.

These Shoes Were Made for Walking!

These Shoes Were Made for Walking!

Amongst other things, the last couple of weeks have been crazy busy!!!!!!!

While doing a bevy of other things,  the team managed to send off a bevy of letters to fundraise amongst other things. I, Coral Chocolatier (me) also took my first walk (cold and alone, but you gotta start somewhere), I took a 4 mile loop through the park (aiming for the 3mph average of 3-day walker) and my legs are still killing me, 2 days later. I got back to my car at a tempo of 4mph, so I think I’m in pretty good shape as far as getting the clip of the walk, but I will need to focus on endurance and longevity, that’s where the team will come in (YES!!!!).  I look forward to the end of the month, when one of the 3-day Outfitters will be hosting a walking clinic (maybe I’ll pick up a few new pairs of “kicks”, while I’m there):)

Oh!!! Post fundraising ideas in the comment section! We’re always looking for new ones.

Check back often,

Sugar Laden Success……..

Okay people! The Gourmet Godiva and I spent hours of planning and texting and cooking on our first fundraiser. It was lots of fun and a huge sugary mess!!!! We decided to make cupcakes (chocolate and strawberry cupcakes, with pink strawberry icing, chocolate icing, and vanilla icing with all kinds of sugaryness dribbled over the icing). But I’m not mentioning, how the gloves almost melted on my hands from reaching in the firey oven to scrape cupcake batter off the floor of the oven.  We sold the cupcakes at our chapter meeting amongst other gatherings throughout the weekend, to much acclaim and success. Leave comments and feedback about things that you would like to see us do. There are less than 250 days left til the walk and we are a far stretch from our individual and team goals. Next Sunday or rather this Sunday coming, we will do our first training walk, weather permitting. Walk with us!

Also, my personal fundraising site is now up! Make your personal online donation to Susan G. Komen for the cure now! (Click here to visit my personal page.) The team page will be up towards the end of the week.

Stay tuned. Check Back Often!
