WOW....100 DAYS UNTIL THE SUSAN G. KOMEN 3DAY WALK FOR THE CURE DFW 2010 EVENT!!!
When I signed up back in February, November sounded so far away I remember thinking that is almost an entire year away there is no way I can't be ready with that kind of time. Then this past weekend as I read Facebook, Twitter, and blogs from all the Boston walkers I remember thinking MAN, there is only a little over 100 days will I really be ready to walk 60 miles in 3 days?

My daughter and I have been talking about the 100 day mark coming up and thought it would be cool to do something like they do in school to mark the 100th day.
A football field is a 100 yards.
In the next 100 days I am scheduled to walk 410 miles.
To this point there are over 100 words in this blog.
40,610 deaths from Breast Cancer in a year, that is 111.2 a day, that means in the next 100 days before the walk 11,120 people will die in the USA.
192,370 Invasive cases of Breast Cancer in a year that is 527 new cases a day, that means in the next 100 days before the walk 52,700 new cases of Invasive Breast Cancer.
62,280 Non invasive cases of Breast Cancer in a year this is 170 new cases a day, that means in the next 100 days before the walk 17,000 new case of non-invasive Breast Cancer.
That is a total of 69,700 new cases of Breast Cancer in between now and November 5th.
I pray that your wife, daughter, sister, niece, friend, or cousin is not one of those new cases won't you help me fight to bring those numbers down.
