Week of July 27

Hi Walkers & Crew~

It's yet another busy week... we are less than 100 days until the Tampa event and even sooner for some others! The Boston event was a great kick off event... even with the mud pit at Opening Ceremonies!

Online Check In started last week. Get the process started today! :)

Here's the training schedule for the week. (click to enlarge)

I don't have a walk posted for Saturday yet. I am checking my schedule for availablity. The next month is really crazy busy for me and I want to try to get some walks in so please have some patience with me and my crazy calendar!

There is a walk for Tuesday (7/28) but please watch the weather. High winds and hail are forecasted for the Dr. Phillips area during our walk time. Call me to confirm.

Have a great week!
Amy :)

Don't Miss the Expo!!!

It's finally here! The Breast Cancer 3-Day Preview Expo!!!

It's a great opportunity to meet other Breast Cancer 3-Day participants, attend informative workshops and get yourself prepared for an incredible journey.

It's this Sunday, July 26 from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm at The Coliseum (535 4th Avenue North St. Petersburg, FL 33701)

There will be Outfitter Clinics, Training Workshops and Event Preparation Sessions. Lots of local outfitters will be on hand with tons of discounted gear and apparel, so bring your shopping bag.

Do you have extra shoes or a tired worn out pair? Bring them with you and give them to someone who could use them. Clean out your closets and drop off your shoes at the collection table next to New Balance Tampa at the Breast Cancer 3-Day Preview Expo. Shoes collected will be spruced up and distributed to communities in need.

Can't wait to see you all on Sunday in St. Pete!!! :)

Week of July 6

July is in full sweep and believe it or not the 1st 3-Day is just 3 weeks away in Boston! YIKES!

Here is the training schedule for the week... better later than never! ;) (click to enlarge)

There is lots going on this month with Training Walks (check the 3-Day page), Expo in St. Pete, and lots of fundraising activities!
If you want some free publicity, let me know. I'll promote your event on the blog and twitter!
I have a couple training walks this week... Thursday, Chain of Lakes Middle School, and Saturday, Dr. Phillips Marketplace. I know it seems strange to have fewer miles this week than last but the training schedule is developed to allow your body to rest yet still remain active. My advice is stick with the schedule. Adding more and more miles that are not on the schedule can cause burn out... and we want you all walking in October! ;)
Walk and Talk to you soon!
Amy ;)
