There are plenty of signs on the 60 mile route.
Some messages are stronger ...

... than others!

But all are meant to motivate the walkers!


The You Know You Are A Susan G. Komen Walker When ...
Facebook group recently posted a request to share a favorite saying on the 3-day.  The first few make walkers smile:

"Is it a real mile, or a Komen mile?"
"Just how far IS a Komen Mile?"
"Just over the hill"
"Camp--1 Mile!"
and ... my favorite ...
"Does the ass make my tutu look big?"

Some are a bit more inspirational:

"I walk so my kids won't have to."
"Cancer is a word ... not a sentence."
"Some angels have wings, others wear sneakers."
"Blisters are better than chemo"
and ... my favorite ...
"Dear Complete Strangers:  Thanks for Walking."

Finally ... there's always that sign that gets you.  It's the one that everyone talks or writes about.
The little girl holding this sign was standing on the Boston Route a few years ago.

... and so ... I will.
Let this be the year!

I'll Wear Mine

This bracelet came in the mail from the 3-Day.  Walkers on the "You Know You're a Susan G. Komen Walker When ..."  were very excited to receive it.  Thanks, 3-Day.  You didn't have to ... but I will wear it!
Cousin Baz, a BIG supporter, has given me a challenge.  No ... I don't have to dye my hair pink, Thumper.  I am leaving that up to you!  He challenged me to wear an R. Federman + Sons t-shirt. Reuben Federman was our great grandfather and R. Federman + Sons was a family business. I am looking for the logo, which is not easy to find.  I'm going to have an amazing shirt designed and I am going to wear it ... and expect Baz to wear it, too. 
Challenges are fun, 'eh?
I have raised $245 so far.

Yup!  I brought in the New Year with a forkful of herring ... because it's good luck! Good luck and good for you! Read about it here!
(Black eyed peas and collard greens are on the list, too, Bee!)
That's what I hope for ... Good luck ... and good health ... and maybe throw in good fortune, too!
I hope your 2013 is all that for you.
