Countdown Begins

Thanks to your verbal promises, I raised just a tiny bit less than half the donation amount needed to walk in the 3-Day Walk for the Cure, so I went ahead and registered (as I really, really want to do this, and it's best to register now, as I currently have the $90 for the registration fee!!)

So, if you look to the right, there's a link to my donation page.

(As you will no doubt notice, the clickie button says "Donate to Kellylyn." Yeah, that's me. Remember I told you I wasn't going to tell you what my horrible southern double-name was? Well, that's it. So, that's my deep dark secret, that I have a wretched name that I don't like much. I prefer Lynn... )

So, if you verbally agreed to make a donation, please feel free to go ahead and make it. There's plenty of time, though; the walk isn't until October, so I have 235 days to raise the money, and to train for the event. Which is good, I'll need them! Every. Single. Day.

I want to thank everyone who has been so encouraging and thoughtful and generous. Know that you are dearly appreciated and loved.

(As an added bonus, my weigh in showed me down 1.4 pounds last night, so I think I've finally gotten past this stupid plateau... YAY me!).

Yay you indeed! I'm very excited for you. I am setting my reminder to donate as soon as I get paid. Wish I were walking with you, down here they just do the 5K. The 3-day sounds AWESOME!

How exciting to be in a race. That's one of my goals. I'm always inspired when I see someone enter one.

3 Cheers on the 1.4 lb loss too:-)

My name is Emmett. Great job running for a cause and getting people to donate. I would like to donate in the future, a little tight with money at the moment. I like your blog.
