Walk On

Well my training has begun. Over the last 2 weeks I have walked 17 miles. I have to admit that it has been awhile since I have worked out this much, but I think my body is adapting well. The biggest help has come in the way of shoes. I went to Fleet Feet in Sandy Springs, Ga and got fitted for a good pair of Asics and some inserts to correct my tendency to over pronate when I walk. What a HUGE difference!

As far as fundraising goes, I received another $30 from my Aunt Jan the other day!! I am going to the local Kroger this coming week and talking to them about setting up a table out front.

Classes start back on Monday, so I will be interested to see how school affects my training!!! 


  1. Way to go! Sounds like you are on track. Did you get Asics GT2150? That's what I have and LOVE them.

  2. They are IGS3010? I think.. They are great though!

  3. I was just browsing the web trying to find some of the "pink feet" fundraising items and came across your blog. I did the walk in Dallas last year and am crewing in Detroit this year. WTG on your training!!! You can do it!

  4. Congratulations! Hope it all went well for you.
