Walking the Walk

10277660_10154029285585702_1459485654653536609_nLast year, I did what I thought to be impossible. I walked the 3KM walk for Multiple Sclerosis.

I had signed up and didn’t really have any idea what I was going to do. I had just stopped walking with my cane but was still shaky on my feet. I walked but didn’t know if I could walk 3KM all in one go.

My friend Julie helped me get ready. Instead of sitting around on our breaks at work, we would go out for walks. I walked to and from work and then twice a day at work. Julie had me calculate how much I walked and add it all up.

According to Google, I walked about 4 to 5KM per day. However, as I pointed out to Julie, I hadn’t done three kilometers all at once. It was split up all throughout the day.

On April 27th, 2014, I embarked on a walk that would change me. I walked with a whole team of people. We had raise $595 towards MS research and were walking for a cause. Mine and everyone else that was affected by MS.

It was the first time I had ever taken part in something like this and even up until the very end, I wasn’t sure I could do it. I had never done anything like the walk, but I had to try. I wanted to prove to myself I could do it.

And I did. We ended up finishing the 3KM walk in 59 minutes and 37 seconds. It took us just under an hour to walk 3KM. There was only one moment where I felt as if I had to stop, but I kept going. I proved to myself I could do it, I could do anything I set my mind to.

This year, my team and I are walking the 5KM walk. Hey, got to reach and continue to grow, right?

I can’t wait to take part in the MS Walk again. Won’t you walk with me? Here’s the info about the walk:

If you can’t walk with me, would you consider donating? Every penny earned helps to fund MS research and finding a cure. You can donate here:


Even if you’re just cheering me on, thanks. It means the world to me and I can’t wait to lace up and get Walking!
