go pink for october

Well kids, I’m off for New York City tomorrow so that I can participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. It’s my 3rd year walking in an event like this, and I’m truly looking forward to this weekend. We should have clear skies and perfect walking weather with highs in the 60′s. I just finished packing all of my things for the weekend into one of those big “I’m backpacking across Europe to find myself” style bags, which I’ll be toting on my back tomorrow from JFK into midtown Manhattan.

It’s not too late to donate to my event – I’m around $200 away from my $1800 goal now. The way I see it is that if I can sleep in a tent and walk all of those miles and use portable toilets all weekend….well, you can donate a few bucks!
