24 days until we head to the mitten!

Crazy week!!!

My finals are this week (a huge final paper and final exam), training is impossible in 101 degree weather, and I am $393 away from goal!!

Please pray for us as we make it through the next few weeks!! :-)

We are going to lay off training this week while the weather subsides... which hopefully it does, because if not, we are in trouble. For those of you who aren't here, the weather has gone up into the 100's with the humidity... last week when we were out walking, I became so hot that I started having chills and was freezing cold. Luckily, my dad was at home and picked us up...

So... we are going to play it by ear, which means finals the first of this week, having a break and an awesome time with Phil's brother and sister while they are in town, then training like CRAZY for one more week, then Michigan!!

Thank you to everyone who supports us... we love you all :-) *** and of course, we will be throwing another 3day party this year for our amazing friends!

I woke up this morning to...

Pink Hair?

I didn't really think anything about it yesterday. I'm doing this for the Breast Cancer walk to honor my grandmother who passed away from breast cancer and donations to be part of the 3day walk. Then I looked in the mirror this morning and realized, I have pink hair. I will have pink hair for the next 5 weeks. Holy cow. You should really donate, I have pink hair. :-)

To answer your next question, yes Phil is getting his hair done, it was a matter of deciding how much of his hair we should do (Phil wants it all, the amount that my scalp was burning, I said he should make a fo-hawk... he wasn't amused.) So my mom will be doing his this week while I am doing interviews for a project, so I guess I will be as surprised as everyone else!

So basically, mom had to bleach out my entire head white, and then wait until it dried (with sunglasses on, I looked like Hannah Montana--- or so I thought, Becky laughed at me) :-) Then we died my whole head pink once, then again. And pictures are below.

The "during" and "after"

What I really wonder though, is how my grandmother (who I am walking for) would have reacted to this? :-)

For the next part, you may want to stop reading, or at least don't look at the picture if you have a weak stomach, as one of my best friends, described it as "EWWWWW" .... but when training last year, I would take breaks and go swimming at the gym. Well one day my pinky toenail decided to come off... which hurt like none other. I couldn't figure out why so I did research (aka texted Phil) and he informed me to keep my nails extra short that during training season they would come off.

So this year, I have been so proud of myself, cutting them as far as they would go, etc. Until yesterday, when my klutzy self tripped and took a fall down the stairs...

And this is my new owwie. Apparently I was not to make it through the season without taking out a toenail. Oh well. I tried. :-)

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we continue this journey, we only have 4 weeks left of training.

Pink Hair, A walk in OUR shoes, and our training walks

I hope you guys all enjoy this post as it is filled with lots of information, fun facts, pictures, and a look inside at what we are doing to entertain ourselves during hours a day of walking, eating, talking, and laughing.

As you all know, in order to do the 3 day, 60 mile walk, we have to EACH raise $2,300. If you know us, you know that although we are never going to see a penny of this money, and it is for a good cause (as to the reason we choose to train over 500 miles to get ready for it, spend endless hours raising money, and doing dumb things like dying our hair pink!) So when we ask to you please, please donate. Please look at what you are donating to, not to us to continue when we are humped over and dragging the last mile, but to the money that is being used to find a cure for Breast Cancer. And for those of you who do not know, they have made a vaccine that has worked in rats, and will be tested in humans in the next few years. Which means your children and grandchildren could be Breast Cancer free.

We do this because my grandmother probably would have liked to have known that she had a grandson in addition to her granddaughter. A mom who would have liked to see her kids graduate college. Fill in the blank, the situation has happened. Last year, I walked with a girl who started the year training with her mom for the 3day, by the Atlanta walk, she was walking FOR her mom.

So first, I'll explain the two fundraiser ideas that I cannot take credit for, but really liked... so please read!!

To amp up donations I am issuing a challenge to everyone... today is July 3rd, and I have $873 to raise. If I raise $200 by next Saturday night/Sunday (The 10th/11th) I will be dying my hair pink through the 3day walk (From July 11th until August 17th I will be a pink-head!). Anyone who has not dyed their hair before, this consists of bleaching out all of my hair, dying it pink, and then after the 3day dying it back brown until the pink wears out. IF, we raise $400 by the 11th, Phil has volunteered to die his hair pink until/through the 3day. Mr. and Mrs. Lowe if you are reading this, this is not my idea, I promise you. :-)

The second fundraiser... A WALK IN OUR SHOES

On Friday/Saturday/Sunday July 30st/August 1st, mom and I have to walk an 18 mile back to back (to back) before tapering for the 3day. On Saturday, we are offering YOU the chance to take a walk in our shoes. We have a route mapped out, and will have a sign up calendar to walk a mile (or more if you would like) for $10 a mile to support the boobies. Mom and I will be walking the entire time, and you will be able to "train" with us during our longest walk. On top of that, we will be having a cook-out that night to celebrate the longest training walk, including a pool party, volleyball, and our wonderful friends!!

A few pictures of our walks... We walked a lot at the lake last week as it creeped over 100 degree multiple days... at 7am the wildlife is amazing....

Our super old turtle friend

These ducks were all sitting on the grass when we walked up, one by one they made their way into the water staying in a row. We watched as every single duck entered the water, and the one duck (who looked the oldest) sat on the edge and watched but never entered the water.

I tried a clif shot for the first time yesterday. It was interesting but they work wonders. Today I purchased a Vanilla Gu, so we will see which one tastes better!

Thanks for reading if you made it this far! And if you did please leave me a comment either here or on fb, it's sometimes good to know I'm not always writing to myself :-)

Also, think about donating in the next week, you know you always wanted to see me with bright pink hair ;-)

44 Days + $873

Thank you to everyone who came out for the Breast Cancer Cook-Off!! It was awesome, the food was amazing, and our chef's really need to open their own restaurant!

I could not have done this without Chris, Kenny, and Phil... Thank you so much!! And to mom and Shea for always helping out with everything!

To everyone who could not make it... the guys each made three course meals and provided samples of each course... we all sampled and voted after each course, then added up the votes at the end.

Here are some pictures (keep reading after there is still more to follow!)

Updates: We have been walking out in this heat. Currently, we have 6 training weeks left including the one we are in right now, and very behind where we were last year. I have suffered a few times from overheating and somehow mom is walking along with no complaints. She has to be the best partner in the world, she will not mention a complaint at all, although the second I start wearing down, she lists everything that is hurting on her. Typically it is her entire body, but I love the fact that she won't let me know until I finally break. For anyone who is wondering 6 weeks is plenty of time, and we will be completely trained by the time we go walk, we just spent about 5 weeks last year training 15 miles a day for three days a week, and that will not be the case this year.

For those who are in Michigan: I have the info on the walk. I will email you in the next week or so with all the information. Phil will be up there the entire time and will be able to let you know where all the points are (they are secured by police so we do not know ahead of time)... and we are hoping to get a group together to go out afterward. Once we get the address of the hotel, I will send out information to everyone!!

Please keep donating and supporting!! We only have 44 days and I still have $873 to raise!! Most importantly, any morning you are bored, send me a long e-mail, a puzzle, some problem to figure out, I have to get my mind off of the tiredness and the heat! :-)

Thank you again for all the support, I love all of you!

It's 90 WHAT~!

After almost passing out on the softball field after an hour yesterday, we thought it would not be the best idea to try training today. The forecast for this week (on the days we will be walking) is 93, 93, 92...

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers this week as we walk lots of miles, we are having to play catch-up a lot because our training has not been as consistant as last year when I was not in school. We have only 8.5 weeks to be fully prepared, which means rain or shine, whether it is 100 degrees or not we will be out walking.

I have not much to report on, our training will become hours longer starting next week as I finish up one of my summer school classes, and can pretty much concentrate on training alone.

Thank you everyone who has contributed so much, we are looking forward to having a garage sale this Saturday, followed by the Cook-Off next Saturday, which we are EXTREMELY excited about. If you have not gotten information on this yet, please contact me!! We are expecting to have a great turn out, and all the chefs have been practicing their dishes and are excited to compete.

Sorry to wrap it up so short, but back to the homework!!

Thursday, June 3, 2010


During the 3day getting cards is pretty much the most amazing thing ever. You receive them after walking your first 20 miles and have to set up your tent, your exhausted, etc.... and then you receive encouragement mail!!

Here is the address this year for those of you who would like to send it, to either my mom or me, or both. You can send it anytime from now until August 3rd.

Send letters to:

3-Day for the Cure PO

ATTN: INSERT NAME OF PARTICIPANT (If you are sending it to mom, she is listed under her legal name- Debra)

P.O. Box 611

South Lyon, MI 48178

Envelopes only, please. No boxes or large packages. Mail must be postmarked no later than August 3 in order to ensure delivery at the 3-Day for the Cure Camp Post Office. This address is not the actual location of camp, but a PO Box for mail delivery only.

Breast Cancer --- the end is in sight!

So after hearing more information about the Breast Cancer vaccine (follow-up from the last post), and Phil looking at the proteins and the "scientific" knowledge... Basically the way it was explained to me was that the researchers were able to locate something in the body that was there only when breast cancer was present. They were able to create a vaccine that causes your body to fight off the "cell/protein" <--- (we are calling it both because Phil is not presently here to tell me which one it is).... all on its own.

So they are hoping to start experimenting with it within the next year, which according to my pharmaceutical engineer, it could possibly (if it works) be available in 10 years... while it sounds like a long time, it's really not. My main focus is knowing that there is now a possibility that by the time I have a little girl, she could receive a vaccine that would make her breast cancer free.

In present time...

Training went well yesterday, it was SOOOOO hot and humid. After 4 miles I could barely breathe. Thank goodness that we will be training in this heat and then traveling to a colder place!

Saturday is another garage sale!! Thank you everyone who has given us stuff again, we have so much, we are having to have it at home again instead of traveling because we could not fit it all into two cars. THAT IS AWESOME!!!

Also, this was pretty much the most awesome surprise of all.... Ana, who reads the blog and postings and has followed everything, said she was not able to receive a breast cancer jar so she made her own, filled it up, and gave it to me when we went to visit her this past week! Hands down, I think I have the best friends in the world...

Breast Cancer Vaccine is showing promising results!!

Article that I found while reading the news online....

A breast cancer vaccine has shown promising results in mice, according to a study by researchers at Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute.

Researchers say the vaccination prevented breast cancer tumors from forming while also stopping the growth of existing tumors.

Doctors and researchers are hopeful that the vaccine will bring similar results when tested on women and bring an end to breast cancer.

“We can vaccinate normal, healthy women and make sure they don't get the disease,” said Dr. Vincent Tuohy, the study's principal investigator and an immunologist at the Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute.

Tuohy said when the vaccine was injected into genetically cancer-prone mice, none developed breast cancer.

However, Duke oncologist Dr. Victoria Seewaldt warns cancers have been cured in mice before but failed to work on people.

“We have cured an awful lot of mouse cancer in my day," Seewaldt said. "I really want to see it working in humans before I take out the champagne bottle."

Tuohy said the findings of the study offer hope to breast cancer survivors and those with a heightened risk of developing breast cancer.

New 3 Day Location- Where to go and where to avoid!

Where to go!

I found a new place that they should hold the 3 day. In the town and surrounding towns of Oneida, NY. It was beautiful, there was a ton to look at, and best of all.... it was flat! The weather was perfect and Phil was able to show me around his entire hometown... on foot!

Where To Avoid!

Yesterday, my mom and I were halfway down the street when it started to rain. We realized it was going to end up in a downpour and turned around. We changed our training days to Tues, Wed, Thurs this week. So today, we chose a new spot, mainly because we were sick of staring at the same houses and roads everyday. We parked at the tennis courts and set out to walk. The weather was nice, it was sprinkling a little but not enough to stop walking. We were about 2.5 miles in when we walked past where the car was parked to venture out into the rest of the neighborhood. Mom happened to glance over at a group of people staring at her car and then realized there was a large hole. I guess we will go back to our old roads and houses again, boredom is better than this! :-)
* Luckily the person was in such a rush they stole a beach bag that contained nothing of value.

Small Vent

So to give you a little background information, (Sorry Phil), Phil and I were out training one night, or more like I was training he was keeping me company. We ended up in a debate about women waiting until they were 40 to get mammograms. He was making good points looking at it from a money standpoint and everything else that is logical, where I was looking at it from what I call a *girl* standpoint. Mine was all emotions. When Phil would say, is it worth it to have 5,000 women tested every single year for 10 years and waste all that money when they may only miss 1 or 2 women in the entire bunch? My response? What if that one was me.

So tonight, since I have a break from school, I spent some time googling for fun (which was a nice change!) And I came across many articles that now are stated that women do not need to get mammograms until they are 50 years old. FIFTY! I think out of all the women I know, my grandmother may be the only one that developed breast cancer AFTER the age of fifty. I read through some interviews from doctors, and it looks like they are not agreeing with this either. They said they would continue to have their patients get yearly mammograms, that breast cancer is the most common cancer and second cause of death from cancer.

The reason for the U.S. Preventative Task Force to choose the age of 50 and then every other year after that is due to false positives. Which causes stress in women. I'm sorry but I would rather be stressed for a week or two until they do another test than to not be tested at all.

Okay small vent over. Time for bed. Sweet dreams all!! :-)

Hottest Week Ever.

I was unaware until last week that North Carolina was located next to the SUN! It was so hot. It was honestly the first week between this year and last year that I quit walking mid-way, deciding I was going to pass out, and called for a ride. Granted in July of last year it reached over 100 degrees, but training up to that made a big difference.It was so hot, we were both covered in sunscreen and after 4 miles I had already started to burn. Great picture huh? This was the picture I sent to Phil with a plea to ask him to pick us up off the street.

We only made it about 4.5 miles and didn't try again the next day. So tomorrow we will start the week again with our three days. We are a week behind, but I think it was worth it not to be out in the heat.

In other news, The Cook-Off is on for June 26th, I tried to make sure I covered everyone in the invitation via evite however, some people i do not have e-mail addresses for, so please send me your e-mail if you want to come to this event, friends/boyfriends/girlfriends/spouses are all welcome.

There are 3 guys cooking off against each other, each preparing 3 courses. The cost is $10 a head (anyone under 5 is free) and ALL of the proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Walk! We are hoping to have as many people as we can that are interested, so please e-mail me for all the info!

Garage Sale Success!! Pictures!! And other Events!! <--- I sound like Danny from Tri-Sports :-)

We hosted our first garage sale of the year last weekend and it was a huge success!! We brought in over $300 and had some awesome help, Anna was there 10 minutes and was bargaining like a champ! Thanks to Kenny, Shea, and Anna for donating, and to Chris and Phil for helping clean up. Sorry Chris you always seem to secretly get roped into helping. :-)

Our next garage sale will be on June 5th, and the goal is to still beat are largest one from last year where we made $450!!! So if anyone has any "treasures" they would like to get rid of, send them this way!! You can write them off of your taxes as a donation (which is pretty awesome!) :-)

Here are some pictures from this past weekend...

As for walking, we are on mile 9 this week... with 13 weeks left of training... it has been fun so far...another month and the temp will be in the high 80's and we will be pushing 13 or 14 miles a day... then those will be the tough days :-) Luckily this year, we will be training in hotter weather than actually doing the walk and there are less hills in Michigan than where we are training. For that reason, I feel no need to conquer the large hills in the neighborhood after 9 miles if I am not going to have to do them in the 3day.

To avoid this, I bring Phil along...
In other news, for those of you who asked what fundraisers we are doing besides garage sales, we will be having a cook-off in June! I am very excited about this, three of the guys have volunteered to compete against each other in making full meals and we will get to choose which one is the best, (sort of like Iron Chef)...

Details are to follow, if you are interested in coming to this, please let me know and I will make sure I include you in the invite!!

Another Walker's Letter --- 60milegirl

  I read this on the facebook 60 mile/3day group and thought I would share... :)


Every Minute Counts

Last night, I decided it was time to write a new fundraising letter. Each year, I write a few different letters, depending on how I’m approaching our fundraising. It’s important to change it up, and after 10 years, that sometimes gets difficult. After all, how many different ways are there to say, “Please help”?

For inspiration for my new letter, I decided to review the facts sheet that the Komen folks sent to me when I agreed to be an “online ambassador”. One fact I hadn’t seen before reached out and hit me in the face.

>> A person dies from breast cancer every 68 seconds. <<

68 seconds?! Every minute another person dies from breast cancer.

In the ten minutes that it took to brew my coffee this morning, someone’s daughter died. A young man lost his only sister. A husband held his dying partner’s hand. An older woman had to tell her granddaughter that mommy wasn’t coming home. A woman said goodbye to her brother forever. A man died quietly, ashamed of his body. A single mother died wondering who would care for her children. A woman with no family died alone in a sterile hospital room. A family gathered around their matriarch to say goodbye. Somebody’s best friend died. All that loss while I waited for my coffee.
This litany of loss could be devastatingly depressing. But it doesn’t have to be. Instead, I choose to use it to inspire me to be stronger in my training and more intentional in my fundraising. Every minute that I am walking in The 3Day Walk, I am saving lives and supporting people who are living with breast cancer. By raising money with my footsteps, my minutes are counting in this battle. I am waging war by using my feet, and engaging the hearts – and wallets – of my family and friends.

Walking at full speed, it would take me about 950 minutes to walk 60 miles. The 60 miles of The 3Day will actually take a lot longer than that because I need to stop and stretch and eat snacks and visit those beautiful porta-potties. So, it will take me around 1500 minutes of walking. And in those 1500 minutes, all across the world, 1500 more people will die from breast cancer. But in those same 1500 minutes, the money that my feet helped to raise will help to change the face of the disease.

I have raised at least $3000 each of the years that I have walked, so each minute that I walk is worth two more dollars towards the cause. Two dollars might not sound like much but those dollars really do add up. Each minute that I walk, I will be walking with thousands of other people, so my dollars are matched by all those other dollars.

Just last year alone, our minutes were part of $93 million in grants offered to 1900 community organizations. In 2009, our minutes helped 3.9 million people to receive breast cancer education materials. Our minutes helped more than 260,000 women to receive a potentially life-saving mammogram. Our minutes helped approximately 5,000 people to be diagnosed with breast cancer who otherwise may not have been diagnosed, and our minutes helped more than 100,000 women to benefit from treatment assistance.

My minutes, multiplied by the thousands of 3Day Walkers and Crew in fifteen cities this year, will lead the fight to change the statistics and transform the litany of loss to a celebration of hope.

Another person dies from breast cancer every minute? That may be true, but it is also true that every minute, there are also thousands of us all across the world, walking towards a different future. We all get to decide which minutes of our lives to make count. Make your minutes count.

Curing Breast Cancer, Promoting Skin Cancer

Not really. But I didn't realize how sunny it was outside today. (I know Laurie, you are shaking your finger at me right now). :-) Tomorrow, there will be sunscreen involved. And tonight, aloe. =)

Today was the first of the official training until August 1st, this week is the 6 miles, then it goes up to 7 miles... and so on. There is 16 weeks until August 1st, and based on training from last year, the weeks that were the hardest were mile 11, 15, 18 ... so those will be repeated for two weeks.

Basically training is broken down into M,T,W - long walks (the same everyday for that week, so this week it is 6 miles), Thursday is a break day, Friday is a short walk, this week will be 3 miles, the most the short walk ever becomes is 6 miles. Then Saturday will be a swimming/elliptical day, and Sunday is off.

If anyone is ever interested in walking with me during my short walks, I will switch my Friday and Saturday so just let me know! :-)
Thanks to everyone who has already donated this year, you guys kick butt!! My mom and I will be looking into our shirts soon, so if there is anyone you would like us to walk for in memory of or in honor of, please let me know and I will be happy to add their names to the back of ours shirts!

Time for many, many papers, almost done with spring semester!! =) I promise I will update with more exciting adventures!!

4 months.... WHAT?!!?!!?

I received the April newsletter from the 3day today and realized, I only have 4 months left to train and raise $$ for breast cancer!! 4 months!!

I started talking to my mom about it, and told her I would be happy in the future that if I continued to walk the 3day every year, I would be working and could donate the money myself. Then, she made a really good point. As much as I hate asking everyone else for money (even though it is required to walk) she pointed out  that through fundraising, it is making others more aware of the fact that more than 465,000 die from the disease each year. If that is not scary enough try this fact: A woman dies from breast cancer every 68 seconds. So in other words, the donation hair cuts have started, the garage sales are about to start, and thank you to everyone who currently has a coin jar. Thank you for making others aware and for continuing to donate to the cause. Last year alone the 3day, which had 15- 3 day walks... raised $91 million!!!!! IN ONE YEAR!!!!

I heard on the radio the other day that breast cancer pre-scanning for cancer has pretty much gone as far as it can go, and now the focus is on nutrition and exercise. Taking care of yourself is the largest preventative. So with that, here are my goals for through August, and as a few friends informed me last year that they started walking more after reading the training schedules, I challenge you (guys and gals) to take out two things from your diet that are not healthy and make at least 3 goals.

Until August these are my goals:

3 long walks per week
3 short walks
weight training 2-3 times a week---  (for this I had Adam put together a short program for me using almost nothing-- if anyone wants a list of things to do, I will pass this on to you)

Deleting from my diet:

Sweet Tea (I have an addiction)
Sweets/Desserts down to 3 times a week (yes, this is cutting down A LOT)

So if you are around me, yell at me if I try to order sweet tea at a restaurant. This is really my largest weakness. :)

** Thank you everyone who continues to read and support, love you guys!!! :) I'm so excited this year to walk in Michigan, and I am currently trying to convince Phil to walk with my mom and I as well. He has been training (and entertaining) us... I'll keep you posted if he becomes one of the fifty guys to walk among the thousands of women. :-)

If anyone happens to have anything left after last year :) we are having our first garage sale on April 24th.... so please contact us, and we will come pick anything you have up and take it off of your hands!!

It's Training Time!

Apparently I'm not so good at writing on my blog this year as I was last. I blame grad school and the 20 page papers that are typed out on a semi-monthly basis. :-)

I received the breast cancer stickers for the jars yesterday, so I will be giving them out to everyone when I see them, I haven't forgotten about you!! So far, I have raised over $150 in change alone which is awesome!!

Training started last week, truthfully I was having some trouble getting motivated. Mainly because I had not worked out in about 4 months, it was still cold outside, I had no desire to go the same route as last year, and lets be truthful here, Christmas gave me a +8 from where I was at on the pretty scale in my bathroom. :-P

I discovered that there is a GPS on my phone that allows me to track where I go so I can now stop having to map beforehand. It also allows me to have challenges, so since I'm trying to get back in shape for the walking this month, I am on a 100 miles in 30 days track. April will be 150 miles in 30 days, and hopefully by then I will be back up to full training for May, June, and July!

A few people have asked for my training schedule to copy and use for themselves... and I will continue to post it as a train, but as of right now, I'm shooting for 6-7 miles, 5-6 times a week. In April this will increase to 9 miles, 5-6 times a week... after that it will become a set schedule.

Goal for the Michigan 3-day:

Raise $2,300 (it's required!)

See 30 pounds disappear on the scale (same amount lost last year) :-)

Get some friends from Michigan out on the roads during the 3 day to cheer us on (and/or eat olive garden with us after the closing ceremony!!)

Create shirts with names of anyone you want us walking for, in honor or in memory of !

Figure out where the heck the other walkers get speakers to hook to the outside of their backpacks so they can listen to music!

The Coin Jars

Training started today! Yay!

Instead of asking for donations this year toward the $2,300 it costs to walk for Breast Cancer, we are distributing coin jars to anyone who wants to help with their spare change.  (we will not track you down and force you to take one --- well, some of you we will... you know who you are) :-)

Every little bit is one step closer to curing Breast Cancer!

And the training begins....

I hope everyone had a terrific New Years!!! I spent mine in NYC @ Times Square with 2 of the best guys ever. And some random people who were highly entertaining.

This was our first location before we went for a second dinner and then moved in closer. At this point we were so pushed together that I could not move back to face the front without help.

Time to start training... I am going to work on a schedule this week. And hopefully it will warm up a little outside! :-)

And in other news, this is why my boyfriend ROCKS....

His donation to start my 3day off this year. :-)
