that one time i found out i was in a commercial


once upon a time,  me and my bff participated in the Susan G. Komen 3 day for the Cure.  
you know, just a little 3 day thing where 2,000 + people, who all raised a minimum of $2,300 each, 
wore pink all day and walked.   60 miles.

it was one of the hardest things i have ever done, but it was also one of the most gratifying. 
and so that was about a year and a half ago. and i have a lot of happy memories and pictures to remember it by. but now i have one more thing.

a commercial.

a couple of weeks ago my sister's cutiepie boyfriend was watching tv in Boston. 
the show went to commercial, and then for one split second he thought he saw my face.  
He rewound, and paused, and he was right. 
it was me!

he took a picture of my face and sent it to me asking if i knew i was in a commercial. 
and well, i had no idea. none whatsoever!

and so, over the past couple of days and weeks, 
so many people {in the most random of places} have been asking if i was in a commercial because they swear they saw me.   while people in Georgia have seen it, i haven't but did find it on the 3-day website :)

 its a pretty great cause, and a powerful commercial. and hey!
you even get a little glimpse of someone you know.
maaaaybe a little tired and hot. but its meeee!

love that you did the 3 day... and that you made it in a commercial!

ive wondered about doing the 3 day... the only thing that is not appealing to me is the whole sleeping in tents thing. i know that probably makes me sound bratty, but i just think i wouldnt get any sleep... and i feel like you'd really need to sleep to walk that much, you know?

Very cool! But may I ask how you walked 60 miles in those shoes?! My feet would have been killin' me!

Brittanie said...

This cracks me up! I wanted to write you a little something asking if you were in this commercial, but then thought, "Oh shoot there are hundreds of amazing women and men who do this!" I'm so glad others were thinking the same thing and that it actually IS you!

I work for the Komen Maryland Affiliate and love that you have participated in this walk and write about it! You're amazing!
