This year, I’ll be walking for a very dear one, Rachel. We met 10 years ago in yoga teacher training. This meeting seemed serendipitous for both of us. I hired Rachel to work with me in Whole Body at Whole Foods, we completed our yoga teacher training together and soon we were housemates on High Street. I often refer to my years on High Street as the Golden years. Living with my favorite women having the time of our lives. Our friendship has continued to blossom as Rachel has visited me and Erin in Vermont. She’s one of the few who enjoys staying in our tiny house with us! And also one of the few that we call our VIP guest!!! I’m so fortunate to have my friendship with Rachel, she’s like a sister and we’ve been through so much together! This winter Rachel had some devastating news with her breast cancer diagnosis. I’m walking to support her, and also so many other women in my life who’ve been through this journey. I’m blown away by your strength and courage and want to show my support. This will be my first walk and I’m looking forward to it!
I’m walking the Komen walk this year for my dear friend Rachel. I’m also walking for Vicki, Rae, Sarah, Shauna, Lanette, Shari, Marge, Cat, Usha and other women who have touched my life. Their stories of strength, courage and resiliance teach me to show up more in my life and live it to the fullest. I continue to be inspired by these brave women everyday. As i write this, i keep thinking of more women who I’m connected to or my friends are connected to and realize that supporting cancer research is imperative. I hope that the money raised for my team “Rallying for Rachel” will support critical breakthroughs in medicine.
