Avon Walk for Breast Cancer
My great friend Mary is participating in a 2 day 39 mile journey to help raise money for and support breast cancer research. To contribute your support go to Mary's personal page listed below. Also, visit http://www.avonwalk.org for more information on this event.
The money raised helps fund medical research, clinical care, support services, educational and advocacy seminars, and community-based, non-profit early detection breast health programs. It's so easy!

Here is how she has been preparing for her walk:
Greetings! I can't believe that the Avon Breast Cancer Walk is only 72 days away! I've been walking to and from work as much as possible and occasionally during lunch (2-3 hours a day). Recently, I've started Bikram Yoga (hot, hot yoga), hoping it will help me survive the 39 mile journey in mid-May. For those of you who enjoy yoga, you should check out Bikram - it's intense.
BIKRAM YOGA was developed by Bikram Choudhury, who claims that his method is the only true hatha yoga practiced in the West. Bikram has designed a sequence of 26 asana yoga postures and 2 breathing exercises that are performed in a heated room. The postures are vigorous and demand a lot from the students. The heated room, typically set around 95 - 105 degrees fahrenheit (35 - 40 degrees celsius) makes muscles more pliant and encourages sweating which acts as a purifier.
