Doing my part to help change the course

So today was the SF AIDS Walk, and my cousin and I finished the six miles in just under three hours. I know, you're probably thinking, was she crawling, or what?

Aside from my feet feeling like they've been pounded down to bloody stumps, I managed to get through the walk just fine. Plus, I got to listen to some really cool reggae from my favorite local band, Native Elements. But overall, I feel great to know that I was able to raise a nice sum to go benefit local AIDS organizations.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who sponsored me. Your support really means a lot.

I did a walk-a-thon for charity one time when I was a kid. You could either walk 20 miles or 40 miles. (same course twice)

Being the cocky know-it-all, I opted for 40. By the time I finished, I swear I could barely stand up. I was hobbling to the finish line and felt like an old man. I was only 15.

Surprisingly, the next day I was up and around with no soreness or problem. Ah, to be a kid again!
