Day after tomorrow DKM and I head for the Bay Area for the SF Komen 3 Day for the Cure. Nope, we're not walking; we're going to be in a van, driving back and forth on the route, picking up walkers who need a break.

Last year...I still like this picture...
I'm hoping this year goes better than last year, when I had to leave at the end of day two because I'd gotten sick.

This year, I had the sense to get sick ahead of time. I'm just kind of half holding my breath, hoping that I don't have a flare up between now and Monday morning. Well, I don't want one after that, either, but I don't want to screw it up the 3 Day this time around.

It's not just me that gets hosed if I get sick. It hoses DKM and takes a van out of the lineup, and it's not like there are 25 vans in operation.

I feel decent, though, so it's really just one of those please don't let it happen things. My real concern should be fatigue, because I'm still a litte tired a lot of the time, but it's not like I'm going to be on my feet all the time. I'll be on my asterisk most of the time, a position I am quite comfortable with.

This will be my first time crewing; I'm very excited about it, and quite hopeful that I won't run anyone over.

I can always blame DKM if I do. I'll find a way.

After this weekend is over, I just have to get through the 19th (colonoscopy...fun, fun, fun) and then I'll train to walk those miles I missed in July, when I couldn't do the Avon walk. In either October or November, I'll go back to San Francisco (because WHY NOT?!?!) and spend a couple of days walking. You guys donated so that I could do that in July...so I'll be a little late, but it'll still be fun.

But until then... ROCK THE PICK SWEEP VAN, BABY!

(If you're walking SF...we're gonna have STUFF in the van for you. Cookies and candy and pins and temporary tattoos and the biggy...real Gatorade powder.)

Oh, and I'll be wearing these:

I have no shame.

Good luck for the weekend. I know these walks mean a lot to you. Love the spiffy net leggins!

They'll definitely not lose track of you whatever happens, but be well!
