    Day 3! After 40 miles, it's the last time to get out and see San Diego by foot - the third day of the Komen 3-Day. The journey, for all of us, was about to wind up. Bittersweet, in that the journey to get to where we were this 3rd Day has been amazing and yet is coming to an end. It would be great if this really was the end of the journey for us - but until a cure for cancer is found, it's a journey that will need to be repeated.

    The 3-Day is getting closer, and training more furious - and of course the pre-cursor to the 3-Day is the Komen Race For The Cure in Balboa Park.  That was held this morning.  Here at KFMB, we like to greet the walkers, runners, and volunteers early - so when I arrived this morning right at sunrise, you can see a little of the sun's rays already shining on the tops of these clouds.

    Although it would be raining later, the day started with some sunshine.  There were fewer clouds this morning, and it was colder - much colder - but there was some sun and it was another great start to a great day for me and the other 4,000-some walkers on Day 3.

    This has been terrific training weather, with the clouds and colder temperatures. For the most part. Expecting the wet weather on Sunday, I changed up my longer walks this weekend to Friday and Saturday, and without the sun blazing down overhead and no 100F degree temps inland, one could not ask for better weather to take a 5-hour walk around the neighborhood.

    Tuesday morning is trash day morning in my neighborhood. And when you're out walking for 8 miles (or more, if you're doing a long training walk midweek), you pass a lot of trash cans. It's not about what gets put into them so much, I mean we all throw trash away and know what's in there. But it's how that trash is put in there that really makes trash day one of the worst days ever for a training walk.
