Faith Walker Training

We are still working toward raising funds and training for the AVON Walk for Breast Cancer.  You can donate to our goal by donating online HERE.  If you’d rather send a check, just send me a message and I’ll share instructions for that option.  Thank you so much to those of you who have already helped us during our effort to reach our goal!

The weather in my neck of the woods hasn’t been the most accommodating for outdoor training. Actually, it has caused my indoor training to be off a bit as well! My schedule for getting to the gym works around the morning school schedule. Therefore, when school is delayed or cancelled, my workout routine is delayed or cancelled. I’ve done more treadmill walking in the past few weeks than anything else.



It’s not even close to being as up-to-date as the equipment at the gym, but I have to keep track of my miles! This week’s team goal is to walk a minimum of 10 miles by next Sunday.

Cub 4 has been battling a cold for some days now. If you have or know someone who has issues with asthma, usually a harmless cold can turn into breathing problems. For Cub 4, that is almost always the case. So, on top of her runny nose, she has been wheezing and coughing.  During these times, we travel with the nebulizer and yesterday morning was no exception. I had to give her a treatment before going into our morning worship experience. Although she was a snotty-nosed mess with tissues all around, her sweet friends came back into the office and hung out with her anyway until she was done and able to walk out into the sanctuary with them.


How sweet of them to look past her germs and loud breathing machine to talk and hangout with her for thirty minutes!  Isn’t that just like a good friend? When we are struggling or just plain messed up, our friends don’t see any of that. They look past our stuff as if to say, “So what? I’m here and I’m not going to leave you to get through this thing by yourself.”

Our team, Faith Walkers, hasn’t been able to train together yet physically, but we are all training individually or in pairs for now, and it makes preparing for this walk a little easier.  Just knowing that there are others tracking their mileage motivates me to keep going, and our fundraising efforts will let breast cancer patients know that they are not in this fight alone.  We are all working hard to crush breast cancer!

Living for Him!
