One week ago...

I was at Seattle Center with 1,100 other men and women warming up and getting ready to head out onto the 2013 route for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day.



Our route that day took us thru downtown Seattle, across the I-90 floating bridge, downtown Bellevue and finally into Marymoore Park in Redmond.


It was an amazing weekend.
We walked with survivors, family members, friends, and women currently going thru treatment. We walked with a woman who was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer, brain cancer and liver cancer.

One can't describe the emotion that you feel when you are a part of this event. Its something you need to experience.

Amazing.

That about sums it up.

Reconnecting with my friends was one of the best parts. We met because of the 3-Day six years ago and we've stayed friends.

I love them. We're already talking about doing it next year.
I hesitate because I think my feet just aren't made for this type of walking. I might crew or set up cheering stations along the way.

Cheering stations are so much fun and I love all the people who take time out of the lives to come and cheer us on, hand out treats, and give us hugs and high-fives. If you can't walk, set up a cheering station!


16 Blisters plus a sprained ankle on me.
Alyssa had 13 blisters.
Tami had four maybe
Tami for the win on hoarding the most PB&J sandwiches

We laughed. We cried. We groaned.
We walked.
We made a difference this year.
We'll make a difference next year.
We'll keep making a difference until there is a cure.


Everyone deserves a lifetime.
Everyone.

Happy Friday my friends!
Thank you for always being here, supporting me and cheering me on.
I love you all!
Carmel
