Gone And Done It

For the 2nd time ever, I have signed up for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. A 60 mile walk over 3 days for the fight against breast cancer. Sixty miles. Walking. With my feet. In whatever weather. In November. November weather in North Texas could be anything. Sleeping in tents on the ground and showering in the back of 18-wheelers. I couldn't make this stuff up. I've registered twice now, but this will be my first time to actually participate. Before, in 2007, I just knew I wasn't going to be the kind of person who could walk 60 miles over 3 days, while 9 months pregnant. Reagan was born just 3 weeks after the event.

No worries this time.

I am in it to finish. And I am chronicling my journey to adventure.

So, today....
  • I updated my Participant Page with what I hope are words to inspire many people to donate many dollars.
  • I have composed what those in the know call my "donation letter", which I plan to send to everyone I know. This details as plainly I can manage why I have signed up for what is most assuredly the most difficult thing I have knowingly undertaken. (Motherhood does not count. I had no idea what I was getting into there!) And it's reasons for doing it this year are completely different from the reason I wanted to do it last time.
  • I have created a new blog, 3-Day Fitness Adventure, to chronicle my progress, from can to cain't. Go there! Bookmark this site. I am doing important stuff here and you don't want to miss a single blister or heat rash.

Visit the new blog. Be a friend! Look for us on Facebook. Tell your friends. Give me some space on your own blog. Pass me along. Direct some traffic my way. Even if all you can muster is a little solidarity. Encouragement to press on when the Dog Days of August come nigh will be appreciated.

Breast cancer affects us all.
