Breast Cancer 3-Day

Monday, January 21, 2008

Well.....I did it. It has always been my dream to be able to walk the Breast Cancer 3-Day. It is 60 miles in 3 days and I signed up on Wednesday. I had no intention of doing it this year but I saw it advertised on TV and went on-line to check it out. It just so happened that the only informational session in NH (Where I live, the walk is in Boston) was the next day. I figured it was fate so off I went! By the time I left I had signed up and paid $100 to register and pledged to raise $2,200 to participate. HOLY TOLEDO!!!!!! I have to say I am really nervous about raising that amount of money on my own, but they say the money comes in because it is a cause very close to people. We'll see, I guess!!!!

I set up my personal page with a link to make donations and I spent hours entering e-mail addresses to send out letters to tons of people I know. I am also getting tons of great ideas from my spark friends on the 3 teams I belong to. If it wasn't for spark, I know I never would have attempted this.

It means so much to me, after losing my grandmother to the disease and almost losing my mom. I am so excited but so scared at the same time. I WILL finish that walk even if I have to crawl across the line!!!!!

I had another fabulous week of exercsing and eating and lost 1.6.

    It's big, huh? The idea of that amount of walking? The idea of raising that much money? But you know what? YOU CAN DO THIS! My SIL had to raise a certain amount for her marathon -- and she did it. We'll get you there!! You're a wonderful inspiration and I have all the faith in the world that you'll finish this without crawling. :o) Not so sure about the marathon 2 weeks later, though. :o) *wink*
