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!

Staying Positive!

I’m feeling a little crabby today so I need to put into perspective all of the great things that have happened this week to get out of this funk!

Let’s start:

~ Our NCAA Brackets 4 Boobs ended on Monday night which brought an overwhelming total donation of $400 to the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure! Kyersten Helsel was the winner who generously donated back to the Sistahs!

~ I had a great training week and stayed on track, Jen & I made it to the gym every morning by 5:30 a.m., put in 10+ walking miles, 60+ minutes of strength training, 1 hour of cardio, plus a little bit of Zumba time @ home (thanks to the PS3 Move!) and it’s only Thursday!

~ I received 2 online donations –I can’t tell you how exciting it is to watch the little thermometer climb and to get the e-mail notifications “A donation was made on your behalf”!

~ I called my doctor’s office and scheduled my yearly physical – all the ladies out there, have you scheduled yours?? If not, call now!!

~ The kids were home for Spring Break, so I was welcomed home with smiling faces and a clean house each day!!!!

~ Jellybeans have been in full stock on my counter (thanks to the dear hubby) for my continuous consumption throughout the evening --- and this morning ‘cause I was starving when I got home from the gym!

There that did help! A little bit reflection therapy does a mind some good! Here’s to a good weekend!!
