3-Day Walk for the Cure

Idaho Statesman Pink Edition Tradition

October 1, 2015

Funny thing about the fight against breast cancer. You participate in what you think will be a single event and then – BAM. You’re hooked. That’s how the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure started. I signed up for what I thought would be my only 3-Day, 60-Mile Walk and then – BAM. […]

Cancer is Not Done Yet And Neither Am I

May 23, 2015

True confessions. I skip over many of the emails with advice for planning for the 3-Day, 60-Mile Walk for the Cure. As I plan for my team’s 12th anniversary, I think – been there – done that. It’s easy to take the steps for granted. I know what training works for me I know what to carry on the […]
