Welcome to July!

WOW! Only another 32 days until the 3 Day!

This month, we have walked a total of 140.89 miles with a total of mileage at 415.50 so far. I have 196 miles on my New Balance 1122 shoes (since 5/2 and have just ordered my second pair today.

My partner completely shot his original shoes so we got him two new pair. And a pair of New Balance just to walk around in. He is a convert to the New Balance shoe- he loves them!

At the same time that we got him new shoes, I discovered the New Balance 404. It is a light weight sandal with an athletic shoe base. They are SO comfy that I no longer bother wearing anything else!

Last weekend we walked the dreaded 17 miles/13 miles. We had the breakfast of champions, coffee and 2 Ibuprofen. My partner had the cooler packed with lunch and extra socks and we made every mile! This was a major accomplishment- and I didn?t think we could do it? but we DID!

As we get closer to the event, fundraising has become an issue for many of the girls. I have been doing a lot of computer work to help out where I can. My team reached their initial goal of $100.000.00 this morning. We are looking forward to reaching all of our personal goals in the next month.

We now know that we will begin walking from the Minnesota Zoo on August 18th and will end at the Capitol on August 20th. The public is welcome to attend Opening Ceremonies at 6:00 a.m. on the 18th as well as Closing Ceremonies at 4:30 p.m. on the 20th at the Capitol. You are also welcome at cheering stations throughout the event.

They won?t publish the cheering station locations before the first week of August so I will tell you what I know in the next newsletter.

My continued thanks to you all for supporting me in this event. As we get closer to the day, I will be sending out more updates.

I will keep you updated on what is happening- we are only 60 miles to being one step closer to a cure!

you know we are rooting for you all on the 3-day. Too bad I can't take some time off to come out there in August and personally cheer you all on. I will be cheering though from the virtual computer world. Not to mention the donations I made to finding the cure during the bike-a-thon here in Philly-NJ area recently.
