Three Days and 60 Miles for the Cure!

This weekend was the 3Day for the Cure! My teammates and I started the course early Friday morning in Del Mar, CA. We walked 20+ miles south toward our camp ground Friday. The sky was cloudy, but the weather was fairly nice outside, not too hot or too cold.  The second and third days we walked around San Diego, returning to camp Saturday night and walking to Petco Park Sunday afternoon. This link will tell you more details about our route if you are interested. If you were watching the weather or following me on Facebook, you know it rained all day Saturday and Sunday! The wind was blowing, the rain was coming down pretty hard, and it was pretty chilly but we kept walking. At the end of the 60 miles, we walked into Petco Park (Padre's stadium) where we received a t-shirt and waited to walk in to the closing ceremonies together. 

I walked for two amazing women. In memory of my Aunt Doris and in honor of my Aunt Kitty.

The weekend was amazing despite the terrible weather. The people who cheered us on through the rain, the San Diego and San Jose police departments, the bikers, the medics, the 3Day crew, and my amazing teammates made it so fun and inspirational. I can't believe how incredible the experience was and the San Diego 3Day walkers raised 10.8 million dollars for breast cancer research! I want to thank everyone for the calls, messages, texts, and support!
