    A cold morning greeted 3 Day walkers at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Friday - but the mood was very warm. Lots of smiling, laughing and cheering marked the beginning of another 60 mile journey.

    A slower pace to the start of day two with many walkers waking up with aches, pains and blisters. But the day itself turned out to be gorgeous.

    After all the training it's time to rest. I made one last trip to the gym today for a final meeting with the treadmill followed by lots of stretching. Now it's time for a break.

    So here we are.  The Race For The Cure is now behind us and we are in the home stretch for this year's Komen 3-Day Walk.  I'm ready.  I have been training for months - either hiking the hills or hitting the treadmill - and my feet feel good. There's just one minor distraction... the weather.

    Day 3 - What A Finish!!!

    Well, the rain and wind decided to sit out the first few miles of today's final leg and walkers make the most of it.

    Where to begin.  The rain.  The wind.  The combination.  It was a brutal start to the second day of the 3 day journey and didn't let up much as the hours went by. 
    Where to begin.  The rain.  The wind.  The combination.  It was a brutal start to the second day of the 3 day journey and didn't let up much as the hours went by.  But let me just say that I don't think anyone has suffered as much from this unpleasant display from Mother Nature as those who are camping.

    It could have rained... but it didn't.  It could have been cold... but it wasn't.   The economy could have kept the numbers down... but that just didn't happen.  
    It could have rained... but it didn't. It could have been cold... but it wasn't. The economy could have kept the numbers down... but that just didn't happen. Instead it was a beautiful, sunny morning in Balboa Park and 6th Avenue was filled with thousands of runners and walkers of all ages with one common goal - to raise money to support those with breast cancer and fund research to find a cure.

  • Day Two

    Day Two

    It was a cloudy start to the day but no wet stuff. I rolled into camp a little late this morning and didn't get walking until about 7:45 a.m., which is late by 3 Day standards. 
    It was a cloudy start to the day but no wet stuff. I rolled into camp a little late this morning and didn't get walking until about 7:45 a.m., which is late by 3 Day standards. On the second day there seems to be a strong desire to hit the pavement as early as organizers will allow.

    Day One Done!

    What a cold start. In my six years of walking the 3 Day I have never shivered so much waiting for the opening ceremonies to get underway. 
    What a cold start. In my six years of walking the 3 Day I have never shivered so much waiting for the opening ceremonies to get underway. Of course, I wasn't alone. Over four thousand of us, including all the wonderful volunteers, were anxious to get moving. But once we did, things warmed up in a hurry.

    The Night Before

    I can never fall asleep the night before the first day of the walk.  I'm not a great sleeper anyway but this just seems to push me over the edge on the insomnia front.  But I also know I'm far from alone.
