AND NEVER MISS A NEW POST
By Shane Young | July 24, 2014 |
Ascend’s very own Lynn Tolin just trained for and completed the Avon Breast Cancer Walk. Congratulations! This challenging course includes two full days of walking from Fort Mason to Corte Madera Town Park and back again! That’s a total of 39.3 miles!
Lynn worked incredibly hard doing a strength and endurance program that we wrote specifically for this event. The program included two full body workouts with reps of ten and sets of up to eight, which is a lot of work! Clearly this program paid off as Lynn says, “I clearly gained endurance and managed to have no back pain after 40+ miles. For goodness sake, I really expected that would happen! Without the strengthening you did with me I never could have pulled that off.” In addition to the strength work, Lynn was out walking every weekend for up to 5-6 hours at a time. On her biggest weekend Lynn walked 9 hours on Saturday and 4 on Sunday. All of this hard work definitely paid off when Lynn managed to raise $18,000 in support of Breast Cancer. Go Lynn! Lynn also says, “Of course having my skinny jeans “feel great” is just another added bonus.”
This year the Avon Breast Cancer Walk in San Francisco raised a total of 4 million dollars to support local programs serving breast cancer patients and researchers. This event is an annual if you’re looking to be a part of something exciting and super supportive to the community!
