“What’s the big deal? I’ve been walking all my life?” This quote was shared during one of our recent training walks. We all laughed. Because all of us thought the same way before we actually trained for a 3 Day.
The endurance required to walk 60 miles in 3 days is different than the endurance needed to run. Its not easier and its not harder….its just different. The number of hours required to remain on your feet and propel your body forward are many!!
The two pictures I am posting were taken last year. One at mile 59 and the second at mile 60!
Our team will conquer the 60 miles once again in November. We do this not only because we are a bit crazy…but also to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

Lots of work, but I bet it’s a lot of fun.
Yes Pam…lots of fun. Several of us have walked together for 3 years…and for us walking, laughing and talking is a great way to spend time together!
60 miles in 3 days is a significant achievement. Congratulations on committing again for another year!!
Thank you Joan!
Do you all walk the full 60 miles or is it a relay?
We all walk the full 60. We do 20 each day…and sleep in little pink tents at night!!
How fun! And for a great cause, too. I’ll have to see if they have anything similar in our area.
Sue, The 3 Day is held in:
Atlanta, Dallas, Michigan, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Diego, The Twin Cities
