2007 Breast Cancer 3 Day

Wednesday, October 31, 2007

I came, I walked, it's finally over

I want to thank all of the people who supported me both financially and emotionally has I prepared for the 3Day. It was an amazing experience!

I sadly didn't get to complete all 60 miles. I walked 20 miles the first day and was ready for day 2, but my hips and feet didn't cooperate. I had huge blisters on the soles of my feet which I could've pushed through, but my hips had other plans. I knew they may be a problem as I had some pain while training. On day 2 I walked (read: hobbled) 6 more miles before my 3Day was over. I had to take the bus back to camp and after much consideration and many tears decided it was in my best interest not to walk on day 3. The important job was done before I ever took my first step--fundraising. The money you donated will go to help find better treatments and hopefully a cure for this horrible disease. I'm so thankful for those that gave long before I was ever diagnosed. Those dollars helped save my life. Thank you again!

My dear friend Bridget is unbelievable. She completed all 60 miles! She's such an inspiration to me and I'm so happy that I was able to share this experience with her. Bridget, I love you!!

I've been asked already if I will do this again. I don't know that I will be able to walk it again, but I am considering participating as one of the volunteer crew members. It was an amazing experience and it would be great to be a part of it again some day.
