These Literacy Foundation Ads by Gaetan Namouric are so sad!  Give books for the holidays this year to keep them alive!

Scenes from my last training walk…

As you can see, the training schedule is getting pretty intense here!  I am doing it out of order, and definitely skipping some of it…  Fortunately, thanks to Beachbody, I am in great shape.  I just want to walk as much as I can so that I am ready, as walking is a different repetitive motion, and I don’t want to be sore for the event!

I saw these Phlox on my 6.2-mile walk last night, which was incredible!  By the way, I must say that I did not know they were Phlox - that was my mom who told me that!  They smelled so good!

During my walk, I also got the chance to walk past the Quadracci Pavillion/Milwaukee Art Museum, which is always gorgeous!  Here are a few photos!

In the second, you can see an ad for an exhibit I am extremely excited about - my favorite painter is involved!  I will definitely be checking that out!  

As I traveled North, I also passed the Northpoint Ice Cream stand, which has recently been painted very appropriately for my purposes!

And as I traveled further North, the sky was turning pink over the lake (also appropriate!) and was beautiful, so I snapped a couple of pics!

So that 6.2-mile walk put me at exactly at 45 miles of training so far, which is 3/4 of the event itself!  I still have a long way to go, but look forward to every step!  Well, almost every step!

Still accepting donations!  =)
