Week 23....

So, here I am about to start week 23. I am behind on training, getting there on fundraising and so out of it on the whole blogging thing. But, it isn't too late to catch up!

First thing I did today, download the training schedule (24 week) to see how far I am behind. Turns out I am only 11.85 miles behind the training schedule, but if you count the training I did in April, seems I am ahead.

Then, I checked my fundraising - I have raised 33% of my funds!! So, only 77% more to go and 23 more weeks to get there. I can do it!!!

Now, I am onto blogging.... which, I have just done!

In all seriousness, I have found that I am dreading making the appointment to get my first mammogram. I don't want to go, because I don't want them to find anything. I have no family history, so I have no idea of my "chances" - if there is such a thing.

I am going to call 1-877 GO KOMEN (1-877-465-6636) in the morning. They have a support line, plus, they may be able to help me figure out the best way to PAY for said mammogram, as my insurance is now a HIGH DEDUCTIBLE - which basically means I have to pay 100% of the bill until I reach a ridiculous amount. While I can't complain because I have a job, and insurance, I do want to find out what a person in a situation such as that would have to do in order to get treatment. I know that step one is reaching out. I will report back on what I find out!

Until then!!
