I can't believe that the calender says only 8 days away from our walk! And we're so excited because our goal of $7,000 has been met! Thanks to every single generous person that has provided financial as well as mental support along the way. We can't even express how much it means to us! Keep the happy thoughts coming as we head to DC.
When I imagine the early morning of October 8th, I picture us rising with butterflies in our stomachs as we join hundreds, maybe even thousands of men and women ready to walk towards a cure. We begin the journey as strangers but join together in a solidarity to abolish a disease from existence. I picture us as young and old, men and women, strong and weak and we are united to take a stand. There is such sadness felt in the crowd but also so many victories. We will take to the streets of DC to show in a pink-clad army that we will find a way to prevent this pain in the future....to live in a place where the disease is simply a legend whispered about by the old but never experienced by the young.
In preparation for this emotional event, I plan of packing my tissues of course and I've also been giving my feet pep talks to ensure that they will carry me to the finish line. Heck, I may even sprint the 60 miles!
So Washington DC 2010 3 Day for the Cure, I accept your challenge and I will bring it.
Stay tuned for loads of pictures and stories about our adventure!
