I just walked 60km!

A long time ago I mentioned that I would be partaking in a big fundraiser called the Weekend to End Womens Cancers. I spent the last several months preparing by raising over 2000.00$ and walking to try to get somewhat in shape for the event. It took place in Edmonton on Aug 7 and 8 and it was awesome. I have never done anything like this before and I am so happy that I did it.
I was going to do it alone, but in my travels before the event I found out that my neighbour, Michelle was also doing this event in recognition of her mother who died of breast cancer. So I decided to team up with her, her sister Kathy, and their neice Carie. I am so happy I did. It was great to have their support and to support them. It wasn't an easy task to beat the pavement and withstand the high temperatures. The heat was what made it so tiring.
Anyway we completed the event and were still smiling at the end despite sore legs and tons of blisters. Here are some pictures. I am so proud!
