There are two major elements to participating in the Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure:
Each walker has to raise $2,300 in order to participate. So please, if you can, click one of the team members links to the right and donate. Even a $5 donation helps!
There is a 24 week Training Schedule put out by the 3-Day organizers which is designed to make sure you are READY for this adventure. And today ~ April 26 ~ officially kicks off our 24 Week Training. And it starts with a day of rest -- I like that! Since our long walks are scheduled on Sat / Sun, we get Mondays off each week. I can see that Mondays are going to become my favorite day of the week.
On tap for Week 1:
Mon - Rest
Tue - 3 Miles Walk Easy
Wed - Rest
Thu - 3 Miles Walk Moderate
Fri - 30 minutes Cross Training Easy
Sat - 3 Miles Walk Easy
Sun - 3 Miles Walk Easy
Here we go!

Tonight, Bridget, Julie & Joyce are doing our first team fundraiser at the Fifty Forward Dinner Theatre in Donelson. We're volunteering as table waiters -- and we get to keep the tips for our 3-Day Walk! The show is The Titanic, and it's really good.
We have a BUNCH of volunteers coming out to help us, since obviously the three of us can't do it all alone! We'll be back with pictures and a full report later tonight. Be thinking good thoughts that we raise a lot of money for our fundraising minimum!
Currently we're at 41% of the minimum $9,200 needed for the four of us to participate in the Komen 3-Day for the Cure. We're on our way!
