Here's to the owner of Evergreen who waves every time I pass his place ...
And here's to Susie and Gail and Mark who walked by my side ... to the rear ... in front of me.
Here's to the woman wearing the Avon shirt and will walk the 2-day this year in New York.
Here's to the two women who called out "Hey 3-day" and gave a thumbs up!

Training Tip of the Week: Inner Strength (Visual Imagery)
Congratulations! You are only one week away from your Breast Cancer 3-Day. Remember to go through your packing checklist early to make sure that you have enough socks, sunscreen, blister care supplies and personal prescription medications. Do not buy a new pair of shoes at this point. Bring 2 pairs that you have already trained in. Remember to take off your toerings and refrain from getting a pedicure.
It has taken a lot of time, energy and determination to reach this point of the Breast Cancer 3-Day and you should feel proud of yourself. It also is natural to feel a little nervous. Visualization is a tool used by many world-class athletes to prepare for an athletic event. Repeating the images and sensations of a successful Breast Cancer 3-Day will train your subconscious mind to accept them as the truth, banishing any underlying negativity.
Each day this week, imagine yourself at the finish line of The 3-Day, smiling and feeling strong. Feel the breeze on your face as you walk and hear the crowds cheering you on. Feel your feet moving along the sidewalk, light and energized. Think about the clothes you are wearing and how they feel against your skin. Imagine the joy and pride course through you as you walk into camp with hundreds of newfound friends.
See the rows of breast cancer survivors in a sea of pink, thanking you and congratulating you. Imagine every little detail in your mind exactly as you want the experience to be. This is visualization and the more times that you return to this powerful image, the more likely it is to become reality.

With just two weeks to go ... my personal trainer is winding down.
Countdown: 2 Weeks
Tuesday--4 miles--Easy walking
Wednesday--45 minutes--Moderate cross-training
Thursday--5 miles--Moderate walking
Friday--45 minutes--Easy cross-training
Saturday--10 miles--Easy walking
Sunday--8 miles--Easy walking
I knew that going back to work after a summer off would interfere with my training ... I leave the house early and return home late so it has been tough to keep up. The weekends have been mine, though, and I've kept to the schedule.

Getting excited for the SF 3Day? I just finished walking in Seattle and as a first time walker I must say - what an experience! I wish you all the best on your upcoming journey. I've enjoyed reading your blog and the pictures you post are beautiful. You live in a lovely area. Have fun in San Fran!!!
For your information ... Cathy raised well over $5000!
I'm closing in on $4000 myself. I'm so proud of that accomplishment ... and it's due mostly to my CCL friends! "Catzowey!"
