On October 27th - 29th, 2000, I participated in the Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk from Santa Barbara to Malibu.
I walked nearly 60 miles (including 1/3 of it in the RAIN)!!
Believe me when I say that this was truly an unbelievable undertaking.
The training included 8 months of daily and weekend jaunts that always resulted in painful blisters.
I don't know what prompted me to think that I could do this walk. Even my Mother called me crazy.
And, when she passed away in the midst of my training, I nearly gave up.
But with the encouragement of fellow walkers and my family, I somehow managed to keep it together.
Afterwards, my two sisters (Annie and Mary), our spouses and my children were there to welcome me back.
I was drenched from walking in rain all day. And, they were drenched too.
Yet, they waited in the pouring rain and I sure appreciated them for encouraging me the way they did.
Events like this one raise much needed $$ for breast cancer awareness, research and assistance.
And, while this walk was a challenge, it doesn't nearly compare to those women who face breast cancer.
