Horray for Fantastic News!

I finally got the official word in the mail today that my diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound came back normal.  I cannot tell you what a relief that is.  Thank you so much to all of you who have supported me while I waited to hear what was next.  I'm glad to know that what is next involves nothing more than a routine mammogram next year.

I survived the 2011 3-Day Walk with flying colors.  I am working up a write up of the event, but the highlights are as follows, my teammate Nancy, Rocks!!!  She outwalked me and made it possible for me to do more than I could have done alone.

I walked a total of 51.8 miles.  I swept 2.2 miles on Day 2 and then we took the SAG bus after lunch on Day 2 back to camp, skipping the last 6 miles that day.  The other two days, we both walked all the mileage!!!

I did not get as emotionally drained this year, nor was I as physically exhausted after the event, which was nice.  I was able to pretty much return to my regular routine when I got home.

I'm already getting donations for the 2012 walk!!!  Yup, I'm signed up for a third year and you can help me get there by donating now at and clicking on the bright pink "Donate to Margie in 2012" button on the left hand side of the screen.  I am so grateful for each and every one of you who support my walks financially and who support me with your kind words and encouragement.
