  • 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!

    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

    The Night Before

    Saturday, November 21 2009 4:47 AM EST2009-11-21 09:47:00 GMT
    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.

  • Waiting on Friday

    Waiting on Friday

    Friday, November 20 2009 10:52 AM EST2009-11-20 15:52:40 GMT
    There's a point in training for the 3 Day when I'm thankful for the weeks or months I have to get ready for all that walking. 
    There's a point in training for the 3 Day when I'm thankful for the weeks or months I have to get ready for all that walking. But once it comes down to just a matter of day, I get a little anxious. My knee is still bothering me but I'm not going to let it stop me at all. I think I'm going to pop by a drug store in the next day or so and pick up a little tenser bandage for extra support. Other than that, I feel ready. 
  • Ten And Counting...

    Ten And Counting...

    Friday, October 30 2009 5:39 PM EDT2009-10-30 21:39:41 GMT
    Sore. That sums up how I'm feeling tonight. My feet, especially my toes, and my leg in general. Even my lower back's a bit achy. 
    Sore. That sums up how I'm feeling tonight. My feet, especially my toes, and my leg in general. Even my lower back's a bit achy. But it's to be expected because I tested myself today and, all things considered, did pretty well. 
  • "The Race"

    "The Race"

    Wednesday, November 4 2009 12:47 PM EST2009-11-04 17:47:08 GMT
    I always set my alarm for 5:30 for the morning of the Race For The Cure. 
    I always set my alarm for 5:30 for the morning of the Race For The Cure. But it's really a moot point year after year because, for some reason, I always wake up shortly after five after a night of not much sleep, thinking about what a great event this is and anxious to start my day. 
  • "Rallying For A Cure"

    "Rallying For A Cure"

    What better way to start a Sunday morning that to join about 50 other women for a little tennis for a great cause? It's called "Rally For A Cure - a great little fundraiser put on by the fun loving crowd at the Rancho Penasquitos Tennis Center.  
  • That Clicking Sound

    That Clicking Sound

    Ever notice a clicking sound coming from your knee when you climb a flight of stairs? I've had it for a few weeks now and am hoping it will go away soon. 
    Ever notice a clicking sound coming from your knee when you climb a flight of stairs? I've had it for a few weeks now and am hoping it will go away soon. I'm not too worried because, from what I've read on several medical websites, it's probably the result of a slight injury and, if there's no pain associated with it, it will probably go away on its own. So now I have to own up to what probably caused it. 
  • Starting Small...

    Starting Small...

    After finding myself struggling to really get going on my training this year, I've decided to start small. 
    After finding myself struggling to really get going on my training this year, I've decided to start small. This will be my 6th time walking the incredible 60 mile journey and for some reason the training portion has left me lacking in the motivation department. I've been doing my usual two or three days at the gym combined with my weekly outings on the tennis court - but I know it's time to get serious. So I'm setting a few goals for myself this week.
