More on the 3-day

November 12, 2008

I am still processing the incredible weekend. I’m still stiff and my muscles are sore, but I’m moving around, walking up and down stairs, and keeping shoes on most of the day. (My feet are still swollen…) I received this e-mail from the 3-day on Monday and thought I’d share it with you all. It really captures some of the greatest moments of this weekend.

Congratulations – you did it! You gave your heart, soul, sweat and tears for three days and created some remarkable memories along the way.

It all began with an inspiring Opening Ceremony at Southfork Ranch in Parker, TX. With the theme song from “Dallas” kicking off your journey, you were greeted by a beautiful sunrise over the ranch, complete with views of the resident horses and bulls. Friday’s route took you through Plano, Richardson, Dallas and Murphy, where support from the community was all around and excited cheers from local elementary school students put an extra spring in your step!

Saturday morning was chilly as Santa greeted you for breakfast in camp. As you headed out for a 20.7-mile route the weather warmed up and there was not a cloud in the sky. The scenic route took you through Carrollton, Plano and Dallas on numerous park trails, and you enjoyed lunch at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. Some pink unicorns were even spotted, as male crew members got in to the Breast Cancer 3-Day spirit! The cheering stations seemed endless, as crowds came out to support your efforts. Thousands of hugs were shared by both walkers and crew.

On Sunday, there was excitement in the air as you left Timberglen Park for the final day of your journey. You made your way through Addison, Dallas and University Park in an incredible 17.9 miles. It all culminated with a beautiful Closing Ceremony at picturesque Southern Methodist University.

The money you raised will go a long way to helping Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund save lives.

And the pictures that I promised you from closing ceremonies:
