Thank you, friends. (This is a Thursday Throwback post to thank my friends who completed the 60 mile walk in my honor.)
Today I thank my friends who sacrificed to walk in the 3-Day, 60 mile walk. Thank you to Starner’s AP’s and to Laura’s Ladies.
Starner’s AP’s was a team of assistant principals, friends who came together to walk in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk. This amazing group came together shortly after I was diagnosed with Stage 3a, Grade III, Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. They trained for 9 months along with Laura’s Ladies.
Laura’s Ladies was the group from my elementary school who walked in the 3-Day. I was the assistant principal at the school when I was diagnosed. All of these ladies were supportive throughout my journey. So today, I’m thanking them by posting a picture tribute.
- 2015 held many firsts... My goal, not resolution, was very basic. My goal was to be healthy: body, mind and soul.
- Body…I have been eating clean since July 1, 2014. I have room for improvement in this area. I walked my first 5K, Race For A Cure, January 2015. I walked for all who are fighting breast cancer. I walked to celebrate all survivors and to remember those who lost their battle to this horrible disease. It was the first time that I will be recognized as a survivor.
I was so excited to participate in this 5K. I was brave enough to be recognized as a survivor. These were big steps for me.
