Lynda's Ladies

Saturday, I walked with a group of women, Tracee, Nicole, Amanda, Kelly, Pam, Kelly and Tina. We were were honoring our friend, Lynda Goodremont ("Good Copiers, Good People") Kelly Elton, who works for Goodremont's organized the team. She set a goal of $500 for the team and thanks to a late donation from Dave Musteric of FISH Window Cleaning we surpassed the goal.

This was the first time for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk and for once it was fairly easy for me, being only five minutes from my house.

I walked a fair share of the ten laps with Tracee Swank, a new business friend. Within the last several months Tracee has decided to open an independent insurance agency and also add business coaching to her repertoire. It was invigorating to hear all her creative ideas. It helped the pain of the walking on the hard surface be manageable.

At about four laps, I was bored and ready to quit, when I thought about our friend, Lynda, who kept living life to the fullest to the very end of her life. I realized that the little bit of discomfort I was feeling in my hips was nothing.

So I have to thank both Lynda and Tracee for helping me to honor my commitment.

Do you have an accountability partner for your various activities or one for everything?

Merri Bame of Breaking Down Barriers and I are each others' accountability partners. She's better at it than I am, but we try to touch base once a week to see how the other is doing with her goals.
