Since I started yesterday with who I was thankful for, I decided to do it again for day two. Today I am thankful for all the other walkers who participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. Let’s face it, if it weren’t for all of you this event wouldn’t be nearly as awesome as it is. Yeah, I would still be walking and raising money, but it would be a little boring!
Today was a really good day for walking. I’m gonna jump right into the re-cap now becaue it’s already past when I should be going to bed.
Talk about a major change from yesterday! Instead of being cool and raining for over half the day it was hot! It got up to 93 today (or 90 depending on who you asked), which is cooler than some of the training walks, but I was out in it for a lot longer. Yesterday I said that I would prefer hot to wet and I still stand by that but it was rough going with sweat in the eyes.
I got to walk with a lot of teams, solo walkers and near solo walkers. For those of you that follow this site fairly regularly, I got to walk for several miles with Kristen Cincotta (who shared her favorite 3-Day moment with me a couple of months ago). She was great company on the walk and I was really glad to meet her in person.
At lunch I met a team named Punk Walkers (now one of my favorite team names!) and walked with them on and off through the rest of the day. Their team captain, Lisa, was unable to walk when she was 13 and now walks in the 3-Day! This year was her fourth walk!
At the final cheering station, I ran into Jen Hammel, who has also done a 3-Day moment video and is doing a fund raiser tomorrow night. I also ran into Lisa from Whining Causes Blisters, the awesome blog that gave me the idea to try and get the men of the 3-Day nominated for the Sexiest Man Alive.
I’m sure I’m forgetting someone, but it’s getting late and I should really go to sleep. I hope you enjoyed this recap!
