Running (or Walking) For A Cure

I've decided to sign up for the CIBC Run For The Cure.

I'm excited, but truth be told I'm scared to death. I've not run in what seems like forever and the thoughts of this commitment is more than I'm prepared for mentally. I don't want to make light of the fundraising, so I will keep in mind the reason I'm doing this!

I volunteered to do this run (walk) and I did it with the knowledge of what I'm getting in for, both mentally and physically. This being unlike a patient fighting breast cancer. There is no warning, no mental preparation! So, on that note this run is going to be something I'm honoured to be doing and not something I'm going to be dreading. I will run/walk and do what needs to be done. This event, for me, is about raising money and not about the physically pain I'm going to feel after such a long lay off from running or from being physical in any form, for that matter.

There is a possibility of a very special person participating along with me. I will leave that for the special person to make their own announcement.

I don't often petition for funds, but feel free to donate. No amount is too small an amount. A twoonie will do!

From the bottom of my heart - thank you!
