Every step of the way, I will have you with me

Only 60 miles to go! Beginning Friday through Sunday, I will be walking with the Tough Ta-Tas in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure®.

Over the past 15 weeks, so many experiences:

  1. I have walked or run 430 miles.
  2. We have watched the sun rise over White Rock Lake and downtown Dallas.
  3. Inwood Village and Highland Park Village Starbucks have gotten to know us well as we head out on a Saturday or Sunday a bit sleepy at 5:30 a.m. to return in three or four hours ready for a bottle of water or hot coffee.
  4. We’ve walked through the Park Cities, down the Katy Trail, weaving our way to the AAC with a pit stop at the W, even to the Farmer’s Market and back.
  5. During the heat of the summer, we lapped NorthPark long before the stores opened.

Walking with me as a Tough Ta-Ta will be 10 amazing women, one of which is a breast cancer survivor:

  • Leslie Needleman, friend and mother of three, was diagnosed in 2009 and had her last post-cancer treatment check-up this week.
  • Susan McSherry is walking for her best friend who just two weeks ago had a full mastectomy after finishing her chemotherapy and radiation.
  • Becca, Tara and Katie are walking for the second time.
  • Rini, Jules, Carolina, Sonia, Michelle and I are newbies.

I am walking for you and those you love:

  • Our mothers
  • Our daughters
  • Our granddaughters
  • All the special women in our lives

I am walking for those who are fighting cancer now, in support of their fight, to find a cure.

Look for me this weekend! I’ll be the one in pink! Walking to make a difference in the lives of women.
