I conquered that hill I was afraid of, and it wasn't so bad.

Hi everyone (who I have sent this to),
I know it's important for me to get myself into better shape, and I thought this virtual half marathon was a good way to get started on that commitment. I put off sending my story hoping I would get some pictures or something, but I didn't and now it's down to the wire. I have actually kept the commitment to walk even though I didn't send asking for donations, but I am now. The money goes to UCS, which is a non-profit organization that offers help and inpiration to all kinds of people in all kinds of ways. So, if you'd like to support them and me (for my walking efforts and starting my efforts to become more active), please hit the link and donate. I don't have a monetary "goal," but I do have a goal of getting started and then to keep moving on better fitness. I haven't walked every day, but I have walked many of them and hope to be at UCS Saturday morning to do another 1.1 miles (which really will contribute to my total of quite a bit more than 13.1, but I admit I did stretch it out over the month).
Lorna, Mom, etc.
