60 Miles with Sara: Getting started

Back in April, I made the decision to walk to the Dallas/Ft. Worth Susan G. Komen 3-Day.

When I signed up, all I knew about the 3-Day was from social media, tear-jerking TV and radio ads, and my aunt’s training and event experience from several years prior. Eager for a new (big) challenge and inspired by my mom’s very recent breast cancer journey, I made the decision to walk in the DFW 3 Day, which will take place on November 6-8.

Before my first information session, I knew the basics: walk 60 miles in 3 days, train for the event, camp in a pink tent, raise some money. Now, after a few information meetings, a few training walks, lots of questions asked to my awesome teammates/mentors/veteran 3-day warriors, I’m on my way!

Checking out the pink tent I'll sleep in during the event at my first information session!
