One of the greatest things about the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure is the community of people that are involved in it. 3 Day people are optimistic, supportive and wonderful. And that spirit of community expands far beyond the 3 Day event itself. This past year, I have met so many great 3 Day walkers and crew members through Twitter. Chatting with these great ladies and men is like getting a hit of 3 Day spirit every day.
Recently, a number of us Atlanta “tweeps” (or people on Twitter, for the uninitiated) got to chatting and we decided to meet up for a training walk. We all decided to head up to the Silver Comet Trail this past Saturday for a nice nine mile walk between the Floyd Road and Mavell Road trailheads. Due to scheduling conflicts, many of the ladies were unable to join us. However, there were four of us that braved the rain and made it out on Saturday for our walk: myself (@kscincotta on Twitter), Julie (@knittingbagel), Lilly (@gphigirl) and 3 Day newbie Pam (@lilshadetree). And of course, we were joined by a famous guest for our walk: Mug (aka @3DayMug)!
After a few weekends of long solo training walks, it was a very nice to have some people to talk to. We had a great chat during our walk and had a lot of fun, even though we had to dodge a few rainstorms along the way. A little ice cream from the Silver Comet Depot post-walk and some incredibly nice gifts from Lilly rounded out an excellent morning of training. It was truly the best way to spend my last weekend of training before the Boston 3 Day for the Cure in a few days! Thanks ladies!
