What I Am Doing This Weekend


This weekend I’ll be participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in NYC.

It’s a two day, 39 mile walk around The City and this will be my 3rd year.

It makes my feet hurt but it makes me happy to do it and it’s fun to hang out with my mom and my aunts. (This year we are a group of 5! 2/5 of our group holds survivor status.) Again, by hanging out, I mean, walking 39 miles.

Everyone wears pink (just a little bit outside my color reach when it comes to clothes) and gets really into boob jokes and such. It’s ridiculous but, like I said, it’s fun and clearly, it is for a good cause.

So, that’s where I’ll be. I’ll probably tweet about it and instagram along the way.

Last year I walked backwards into a tree with a low fence around it and plopped right down into someone’s garden on my bum. It was nice to sit for a second.

See you next week!
