This off time!

This weeks theme was provided by Katie at May The Cloth Be With You. She asked us to "show off" something that you are proud of.

I was dumbstruck by this question all week. I know that I'm a great person and have many talents; however when it comes to tooting my own horn, I'm not really my best cheering section. The following answer actually came from my Big Man -- he's my best cheering section ever!

I am most proud of having walked 60 KM on September 8-9, 2007 in the Toronto weekend to end breast cancer.


OMG this is the hardest thing I have ever trained for. It practically took over my life for nine months. Every day I would walk 5-8 KM on my own; then on the weekends Marilyn who was my partner in this adventure, together we would walk 20 KM on Saturday AND Sunday!

Marilyn and I had great support from all our family, friends and co-workers. There were poker tournaments, bake sales, raffles and puppy dog eyes. Together we raised over $4,500.00 for the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.

I'm off to watch the new season of The Amazing Race, I love this show! Oh, I know that many of you are still wondering about the big news -- to update, things are still going back and forth between the Lawyers, any guesses yet?

What a great accomplishment! That is something you should defiantely be proud of!!! Congratulations!

And I think it is either money or something to do with kids!

Hi Sara, money is involved but children, no. Keep guessing!

I guess I should check in more often. Although its fun to catch up with your entries and a cup of coffee. Does your posting about being proud of the WEBC mean than you will do it again with me next year????? I'm still gaining weight by eating and drinking what you suggest - its a twisted game you're playing. !!! Proud of you.

Marilyn -- Ha, Ha! See you do bring out the best in me, but sadly no I will not be doing the WEBC again. The Big Man would leave me for sure HOWEVER, you know that I will always be your training/fundraising buddy if you do it again! Can't wait for Saturday!!
