Did you notice something new on the bloggy blog perchance?
I’ll give you a biiiiiiig hint…. its right over…
Yes ladies and gents, I’ve drunk (drank?) the Kool-aid once again!
In 2009 I told you all I must be nuts because I had just signed up to walk 60 miles in 3 days… for the 3rd time… in the middle of treatment for my thyroid cancer. Perhaps I was suffering from cancer brain at the time? So what is my excuse for signing up for my 4th…. hmmmmm… let’s expound on that, shall we?
My 3rd 3-Day was nothing short of amazing. I was able to walk with one of my inspirations - my aunt who is a breast cancer survivor. My mom experienced her first 3-Day as a medical crew member. I watched another of my aunts carry the “Birthdays” flag in Opening Ceremonies. Watched as my team mate succumbed to the evil thing called dehydration. I had blisters covering my heels and between my toes and road rash covering my calves. (ps: no one tells you but your skin does weirdo stuff in a post-cancer world) And I didn’t know it at the time but I saw Jenne Fromm in one of her last 3 Day events as National Spokesperson… gonna miss that girl this year. Walked in ridiculous heat that fast approached the 100F mark. And as a team we raised almost $20,000 even in the crappy economy of Michigan!
And why was all that amazing you ask? Because of moments like these…
