60 Miles, 3 Days, 1 Goal

I am walking in my 2nd Michigan Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure in August 2011. The day after I completed my 1st 3-Day I logged into the Susan G. Komen website and registered for next year's event.

Was the walk easy? No. So why sign up again? Because I can! I can raise the awareness, I can raise the funds, I can walk the walk! And this year I am fortunate enough to have my sister join me on this awesome journey. There are thousands of 3-Day walkers who can't walk with their sisters, I embrace this year's journey with every ounce of gratitude!!

Please follow along as Jennifer and I fundraise, train, raise awareness, possibly argue, and find out more about each other than we ever imagined!

Last Free Weekend

This is not a negative comment - but I just enjoyed my last "free" weekend for the next 6 months! Which means each weekend over the next 24-weeks will be filled with fundraising, training walks & preparation for the 60 mile journey that I'll be taking with Jen in August!

I read a great blog post last year from a fellow 3-Day walker titled "You know you're a 3-Day walker when..." one of the "whens" was sleeping past 7am on the weekends is a thing of the past. Which is so true, majority of our training miles will be put in during the weekend. The first couple of weeks aren't too hard, 3-4 miles each day on Saturday & Sunday. But, it won't be long before I will get up at 6am to get to a training walk that will be 10+ miles, with a bunch of amazing other 3-Day walkers!!

So I took today and didn't go to the gym - I slept in, enjoyed my coffee watching t.v. and didn't leave the house - - - because I could, this one last time until August :)


  1. Don't forget ... You know you're a 3Day walker when you go back to work on Monday morning and your co-workers ask you 'What did you this weekend?' and you answer with '13 & 8, how about you?'

    Keep up the great work. BTW, I'm gathering some items for you for your April garage sale fundraiser.


  2. That's a good one Jennifer!!! You are absolutely right! My garage sale will be the last weekend in April so just holler and I'll come & pick up anything you're looking to part with. Thank you!!!
