Day 19 – The One When I Met My Goal

Some of you may have been following me on social media through my 50 Mile September Challenge to raise money for cancer research. Well, yesterday I finished my first 50 miles. When I started this I didn’t think I would knock this out in 19 days but I’m so glad I did.

I did this one for me. Now, I think I’ll do another 50 miles for my Grandmother who battled cancer several times before she went on to be with my Granddaddy. Thank you to all who have given and if you haven’t yet, come on and help me get this next 50 miles tied to some more money for cancer research.

Cancer sucks! Let’s do something about it.
