We powered through a Walk & Wag marathon, the eventual temperature change and several new blisters to complete our walk with a restored calm that we can, in fact, do this. We now have a 9 day countdown until we start our race and we couldn't be more excited. Thank you again for all of your prayers and support - we couldn't do it without you!

Next Friday (November 6th) we will begin at 5:30am with check in and opening ceremonies and we will begin walking around 7am. We will walk 20.2 miles on day one and then we'll do it all over again on days 2 and 3. This weekend I was in Dallas and had the privilege of walking with Coleen and Kristen for our 18 mile training walk. It was so great and Kristen got some great photos! Hopefully she'll share that with y'all! Mom had to walk alone, but she had a great walk Saturday too. I was home on Sunday and mom and I were able to walk that one together. We were SO lucky to have 2 gorgeous days this weekend. We are PRAYING each day for the same fortune next weekend! I would honestly ask you to pray for that as well.
Again, THANK YOU for your constant support of us! We wouldn't be able to do this without you! I am going to post some information I found on the 3-Day website below. It lists the cheering stations, so if any of you are in the area and would like to stop by we would be so glad to see you! You can also click here to follow us on Twitter!
Before the Event
Getting ready for the Breast Cancer 3-Day is a big job. Here are some ways to support your participant before the big day arrives.
• Write a letter expressing your love and support to your walker. Send it to our P.O. Box, and we'll collect the letters and deliver to them on the event at the Breast Cancer 3-Day camp. Send letters to:
Breast Cancer 3-Day Post Office
ATTN: INSERT NAME OF PARTICIPANT
P.O. Box 126496
Benbrook, TX 76126
Envelopes only, please. No boxes or large packages. Mail must be postmarked no later than October 27th in order to ensure delivery. Any mail that is not retrieved by the participant by November 20th will be destroyed.
• Organize a group to host your very own private cheering station. (Contact email@example.com for more information.)
• Help raise money.
• Go on a training walk.
Public cheering stations are a great way to show your support along the route to encourage walkers and let them know that you are with them every step of the way. Seeing familiar faces cheering them on can provide that extra burst of energy that gets them to take that next step or go the next mile. Create banners, hold up signs, bring some music and make some noise - anything to make them smile, get energized and keep walking.

Sprinkles happens to be a Dallas favorite and just recently I came across their Komen-themed strawberry cupcakes...too cute! Sprinkles baked their Pink Ribbon cupcakes during the week of Oct. 1-7 and donated all of their proceeds to the Women's Cancer Research Fund.
Just think, you can cure your craving all the while helping the cure! Here is a picture of the festive little post-race treats :)
