Ok so I signed up in January for the Breast Cancer 3 day (go to www.the3day.org then donate then Sandra West if you want to see my page)which I came to find out is way early to sign up. I got half of my money right away and have been training for a while (so far my longest walk has been 8 miles), anyway I seem to have lost my motivation.  I should be holding a fundraiser, but I don’t feel like it and I should be doing longer walks, but again I don’t feel like it. I have thought about joing a team but so far I haven’t found one in my area that works with my timeframe. Ok, now I’m whining!!! Pitifull!!!!!!!! Ladies, motivate me!!!

    • Well Darling,

      Now that you went public with this you have no choice. Get your butt to the gym and train. You are walking for a cause and we are all rooting for you.

      Keep us posted.

      Ok, off to walk you go NOW

    • Sassy, I’m new to all this, but I have done the 3day and if you know what is in store for you....that should be all the motivation you need.  This will be one the greatest things you have ever done.  It is such an awesome experience you will remember for the rest of your life.  Just walk a couple miles a day3-4 days a week and do a few longer walks whenever you can.  If you just stay in shape and get a couple of really long walks in, then you will be ok....because the adrenaline and excitement of all around you will keep you going.  Yeah you will probably get a blister or two, you will be sore and tired, but it is nothing compared to what breast cancer patients and survivors go through...thats all you have to remember.
      Now get out there and walk!!!!
      Good luck to you!

      Thanks, I usually walk 3-4 times a week for an hour and then try to get one long walk in on the weekend. I got a cortizone shot in my R hip yesterday and today I can barely walk!! In the long run, I had to get it cuz my hip has been hurtin like crazy. Some people are up to walking 18 miles already!!! Mavericks!!!

    • I’m just going to put this out there, I believe two things

      I can do ALL things with Christ who gives me strength
      and
      With God ALL things are possible

      So I can do this three day because God WILL make it possible, but I do need prayer, so get to praying girlfriends!!!!!
      Specifically“.
      Motivation
      Healing for my hip

      Thanks I am already more motivated than I was yesterday
