Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure!

In 2009, I painfully and courageously (as some tell me) completed the entire 60 mile walk of which probably 45 miles were with large blisters on the balls of both feet. It was my own fault though. I’m just stubborn and wanted to wear my cute polka-dot socks. That same stubbornness wouldn’t allow me to quit and I convinced myself I was the Energizer Bunny and I just kept going and going and going…

Well, it's year three and I'm ready to up the ante. If I can walk 60 miles with blisters most of the way, I know that I can walk 6 days and 120 miles for a cure! This year I have stepped up to challenge myself to walk 60 miles in Washington, DC, October 8-10 and another 60 miles in Dallas, TX, November 5-7.

I’m not only challenging myself but I’m challenging you as well to step up and help donate to each of my walks. Each dollar gets us 1 step closer to a cure and 120 miles is a lot of steps closer.

Thank you for continuing to support me year after year and sharing your stories. The stories touch my heart and remind me that what I’m doing isn’t just about me it’s about everyone out there that has been touched by the horrible disease, CANCER!

In It, To End It!

Boston, Tampa, Boston, Tampa, Dallas, DC…. it was a decision that kept going back and forth but we finally did decide on a place to walk this year. Team J&S4EVER is walking Washington, DC in October!!! Our original team is back together as Kristin will be joining Tracy and I again this year. I am so excited to have her back and it’s an extra bonus that she is an athletic trainer?

I am, however, a two team girl this year. After meeting the ladies of Pink Soles in Motion (PSIM) last year I just fell in love with all of their enthusiasm and energy and I just couldn’t let them walk and raise money without me so I joined the team. I was originally thinking I would just help them fundraise and walk my walk with Tracy where ever we decided to walk but then I realized I was up for the challenge. I have decided to walk not only in DC but also in Dallas in November.
