Category Archives: ….On The Walk

2008 Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-day

The morning started off at 4:00am for Team Affiliate Marketers Worldwide. We hopped on the bus at 5:00am and headed over to Opening Cereremonies.

This part was truly inspirational. Watching all of the survivors get together brought tears to our eyes and motivated us to get out there and start walking.

Seattle proved to be a much harder walk than Minnesota last year. There were so many more hills here that many of the team members were not prepared for. But we kept on truckin’.

We got back to camp about 9-1/2 hours, 2,687 calories and 21.5 miles later. Little did we know that we had another 1-1/2 mile walk back to the hotel.

We all had grand plans to go out to the Karaoke Bar for dinner. That however, turned into a quick stop at Whole Foods for beer, wine, crackers and cheese. We wound up ordering disgusting food from the hotel restaurant and got together on the floor of the hotel lobby.

Tomorrow is another early morning for us. That’s ok though. We’re having a great time, despite our constant complaining. We all have one goal in mind and that’s to get this last 40 miles down and go out for a great dinner on Sunday night.

Here are some pictures from today:

Touring Seattle Pre-Walk

I’ve been to Seattle about 9 times in my life, but this time I got to play tourist. The weather has been phenomenal — sunny and in the 70’s — not a drop of rain. I left the hotel early and headed out with my mother-in-law, Irene and sister-in-law, Tiffany who are also part of the team and we hit downtown Seattle. We hopped on one of those double-decker bus tours which are great, if you have a little time to see a lot.

I finally got to see the top of the Space Needle and check out Pike’s Place Market. The fish were flying! We also stopped for a butterfish (sable fish/black code) lunch at Ray’s Boathouse which was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant as a must-eat for lunch or dinner.

Coincidentally, several of the Ray’s employees are also going to be walking in the 3-day tomorrow and they were nice enough to buy us a glass of wine. They seem like a hoot, so I’m looking forward to seeing them on the walk. We also checked out a display of Chihuly glass pieces which were absolutely beautiful.

Well, it’s a little after 9:00pm now and I’m about ready to hit the sack. We’re up at 4:00am tomorrow to begin the 3-day walk. I think the rest of the team has already called it a night as well.

While I personally don’t mind walking the 60-miles, getting up at 4:00am is not for me!

Below are some pictures of today.

Until tomorrow,

Hey Seattle-ites,

Got some free time this weekend?

Come cheer on Team Affiliate Marketer’s Worldwide as they make their way 60-miles through the streets of Seattle during the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-day.

We’ve raised over $45,000 for this great cause but now comes the hard part — actually having to walk ;-p

There are some Cheering Stations set up at various spots along the 60-mile walk which I’ve detailed below.  Seeing some familiar faces will definitely give us that extra burst of energy we will surely need.

Let me know if you can make any of the Cheering Stations and I’ll keep you posted via Twitter ( as to what time to expect us.

Can’t make a Cheering Station — don’t worry. Shoot us off a tweet or follow us along on the site as I’ll be posting pictures and videos along the way.

Thanks again for all of your support!
