Susan G. Komen 3-Day
Susan G. Komen 3-Day

Please support me as I take an amazing journey in the fight to end breast cancer! The Susan G. Komen 3-Day? is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the Komen 3-Day help fund national research and large public health outreach programs. The remaining 25 percent helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs.

You may be wondering why I am walking 60 miles and raising a minimum of $2300 in donations. I am determined to meet this personal challenge because of a very special person. In 2005, my grandmother went in for a routine mammogram. 2 months later, she was doing a self exam and noticed a lump. After making an appointment to see her doctor and having a biopsy done, it was determined that she did indeed have breast cancer. In 2 months, she went from being cancer free to being diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. It was the most terrifying thing that our family has ever had to go through, and I don?t wish this heartache, unknowing and stress on anyone. Luckily she fought it and beat her cancer and now, in 2013, 8 years later, she is still cancer free. This cause is very important to me, and with my determination and your support, I know that I can do this!

Training- Week of 4/1- 4/13
These last 2 weeks have been harder for me then I thought they were going to be. I decided at the beginning of the month that I wanted to try walking 10 miles all at one time and to try and do it in under 3 hours. Well I did it! But it took a lot out of me. I ended up pushing myself a little too hard by running part of it and I ended up throwing my back out, for the first time. Needless to say, it was a very painful thing to go through, especially since I had never experienced that type of pain before. Doing anything hurt so badly!! Sleeping was probably the worst though because no matter what position I was in, it hurt!
That first week I ended up getting in almost 20 miles, and last week I got in about 10. I am finally feeling good enough to start walking again! I just need for this weather to start getting better here :(
