So while my fundraising was just beginning, I started walking. I learned one thing immediately: I HATED walking in the cold! But in February, I started anyway. Then of course, the big snow storms came. Well in 4 feet of snow, there are no sidewalks to be found to walk on. So early training had to be put on hold almost as soon as it started. But it was a long time till October, so no biggie.
Once the snow FINALLY melted away, I began again. I started with just doing 3 miles walks. 3 miles was not hard, and didn't take very long, so I was able to do it a few times per week. A few weeks later my teammates and I started walking together on a weekly basis.
