In my defense I plan on walking the whole thing. With a couple of friends who know about my health issues and will be completely supportive.
And it's for a really good cause. The library in our town has lost all it's budgeted funding for the coming year. So the town has decided to have a Reindeer Romp to help raise money for the library. See? Good cause! I love reading so I would hate to see the library close!
When I was first reading about this I completely disregarded it because of my health. However, after seeing that I am walking almost two miles, at work, every day I decided to try and go for it. Fortunately, the route is through mostly flat road according to their pdf info. So, hopefully, I will have no problem and sail through this with no issues! Fingers crossed, that I don't collapse pitifully along the route somewhere and that I can stay warm enough in the middle of December.

I am hoping that this will be a lot of fun with quite a bit of holiday cheer involved. Which is very possible with the two other ladies that are going to be walking with me!
I'll keep you posted!
