60 Miles Walked, 28 Team Blisters, 1 Fractured Foot…. Raising $47,000+ for Breast Cancer Research — Priceless!

The 2008 Breast Cancer 3-day is over and Team Affiliate Marketers Worldwide can take a well-deserved break.

Day 2 proved to be the most difficult with hills galore — that should have been avoided. (Note to Breast Cancer 3-day planners!)

Somewhere around mile 30, I was tweeting my remarks when I stepped off a curb the wrong way. Little did I know that at that point, I fractured my foot.

While it hurt like a bitch, I honestly thought it was a simple sprain or muscle pull, so I kept on trucking.

Morning 3, my foot was swollen and painful, so I went to the Medical Tent and had it examined. Because there is no x-ray equipment on site, the medical attendant couldn’t be positive that it was fractured. With that in mind, and because I was determined to finish the remaining 20 miles, I asked him to wrap it up and do the best he could to keep me going.

I walked the remaining miles, loaded up on ibuprophen with one goal in mind — to cross the finish line with the rest of my team.

And that’s what I did. Team Affiliate Marketers Worldwide waited for each other at the finish line and together we crossed it — it was joyous.

Below are all of the pictures of the walk. There are more pictures and videos to come.

Game On!
