Inspiration...

This is my friend Andy. She is awesome! She is such a cool person and such an inspiration. Every year (for the last 3 years) she has participated in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk. That's right... she walks for 3 DAYS!

She is part of a group called the Cactus Mamas that is made up of friends and employees from the National Park Service. Each of them agrees to raise a minimum of $2,200 to be donated directly to the foundation in support of research, treatment and education for the fight against breast cancer. Along with the money raised the group walks 60 miles over the course of 3 Days. Seriously... 60 miles is REALLY far!

Every year Andy invites me to join them. 2 years ago I was pregnant, last year I had just had my baby (she still thought I could make it), this year I have no excuse except that 60 miles is REALLY REALLY far! Maybe I'll think about training this year in an attempt to participate in 2008. We'll see.

Whether I participate or not I am greatly inspired by and extremely proud of my friend! I hope that there is someone in your life who inspires you to push yourself and be a better person :)
