MugSD also wanted to extend an extra special thank you to Aunt Julie in particular (@JulieWalks) for carrying her around Chicago all week and sharing in all of her adventures (and Scooters Custard - NOM!). Aunt Julie had A LOT on her plate, what with co-captaining the huge #3DayTweepsCHI team and all, so for her to make the time to help out MugSD was really awesome. Thank you Aunt Julie!!
Now, onward to the next walk, where MugSD will be joining Jen Carbary (@JenCarbary) and her team “Save the Toucans” as we trample all over Motown, promoting breast cancer awareness!!
Go Team MUG!!!!

MugSD Update: Chicago 3 Day - Day 3!
And last but certainly not least, here are MugSD and Aunt @JulieWalks pictures and tweets from Day 3 of the Chicago 3 Day!! MugSD reports that being a member of the #3DayTweepsCHI has been a supreme highlight of the 2012 season and can’t wait to be with everyone again in Atlanta AND Tampa!! Congratulations, ‘Da Tweeps and MugSD on another great walk!!
Good morning, Day 3!! Miss #FlatLauri and I are riding a school bus to the start of the route!
Man, we CANNOT avoid that crazy #Pit2 paparazzi Miss Kate!! She found us again on Day 3!! (Picture courtesy of @krazykate30)
Yes, Miss #FlatLauri, I can see the rowers. No, Miss #FlatLauri, you can’t go with them. We’re walking @the3day remember?!
We made it to Holding and were immediately enveloped in a giant, flying banana hug from The Big Banana herself, Miss Nicole, our teammate in Seattle in 2011!! It was SO awesome that all of our #3DayTweepsCHI teammates were there to cheer for us - we felt like REAL celebrities!!!
Now that we made it to holding, which means it’s time for #FlatLauri and I to do my most favorite thing on #the3day: welcoming the other walkers home!! Oh hey, there, Medical dude who fixed up Mr. Tommy’s knees all weekend - thanks for taking care of us!
Aunt Julie and I were playing paparazzi on our fellow walkers at Holding! Hi Miss Pam!! (Picture courtesy of @lilshadetree)
Woot woot!!!! All of the #3DayTweepsCHI walkers made it to Holding!!! I’m so, so, so proud of my fellow walkers!! They did such an amazing job this weekend!!! (Picture courtesy of @lilshadetree)
Another GREAT picture of my #3DayTweepsCHI teammates and I proudly carrying our team banner, walking into Closing. Thanks for taking these pics, Miss Vanessa! (Picture courtesy of @DESIGNESSA)

MugSD Update: Chicago 3 Day - Day 2!
Day 2 dawned bright and early for MugSD, Aunt @JulieWalks and the rest of Da’ Tweeps in Chicago! It was a long day of walking, with lots of great sites to see along the way. They even got to reach with #FlatLauri (a stand in teammate for @60milegirl) in the afternoon! Here are the updates from MugSD and the #3DayTweepsCHI on Day 2 of the Chicago 3 Day:
Aunt Julie walks for her daughter and so do I!! We Mugs all LOVE Miss Niblette!!
Second item on our agenda for the day: checking in with Miss Niblette. Aunt Julie said something about Niblette hugs curing sore muscles, so we made sure to get a big dose!
I’m FAMOUS at #Pit2! WOWZA!!!!!! (Picture courtesy of @krazykate30)
Check out me and Aunt Julie at the Pit 2 photo op! Don’t I make the *best* diva?!?
Checking in with our resident #3DayTweepsCHI #Pit2 paparazzi Miss Kate! She declared us Walk Stars and I agree! GREAT job so far @JulieWalks @sbux27 @mrlilshadetree @LilShadetree! (Image courtesy of @krazykate30)
Aunt Julie was overcome with emotion when she found someone on route with boobs bigger than hers!! Ok, maybe she was just talking when they took the picture. Or something. Anyways: HUGE thanks TAG Team for all the support this weekend!
Next stop on the Day 2 route: The Pair Tree!!
The Pair Tree is a VERY important landmark on the Chicago route! We just had to get our picture taken with it!!
YAY!! We made it to lunch, where we ran into PINK SANTA!!! (Which, hmmm… Pink Santa seems awfully familiar…)
Well that explains it! It’s our #3DayTweepsCHI teammate Mike Pink Shoes!!
Back on the route for the second half of Day 2, hanging out with Miss #FlatLauri. I’m pretty sure we overheard Aunt Julie mumbling something about having to do all the work in this relationship, but we just ignored her. Walk strong, Aunt Julie! We’re our own little team here!
Miss #FlatLauri got a sticker! Lucky Miss Lauri. And look! There’s cake at Pit 3!! I could stay at this Pit Stop party all day!!
Meanwhile, back on the route… we stopped for a quick photo with @LilShadetree! The community support, especially from the local police & firemen is spectacular here in Chicago!!
Miss Kate captured this great action shot of Aunt Julie, #FlatLauri and I finishing up on Day 2!! Our teammates were all there cheering us on!! (Picture courtesy of @krazykate30)
Whoohoo!!!! End of Day 2!!!!
Our walkers have all crossed the 40-mile finish line! Looking *amazing* #3DayTweepsCHI!! (Picture courtesy of @3DayTweepsCHI)
Da’ Tweeps Team photo!! It’s been a great weekend with these amazing gals & guys. Can’t wait to celebrate at Closing! (Picture courtesy of @3DayTweepsCHI)
I wonder if #FlatLauri realizes I’m not actually her sleeping bag? Oh well. I’m tired and I like snuggling, so it’s ok. Sweet dreams, #FlatLauri! Tomorrow, we’re gonna see the lake & whoop it up at Closing!
MugSD Update: Chicago 3 Day - Day 1!
Looks like #MugSD had a great time in Chicago walking the 3 Day with Aunt @JulieWalks and the rest of the @3DayTweepsCHI team (aka ‘Da Tweeps!), including their fellow walkers Miss Val (@sbux27), Miss Tammy (@2girls2boys), Miss Pam (@lilshadetree), and Mr. Tommy (@mrlilshadetree). They took A LOT of pictures!!
Us walkers are ready to hit the course! @LilShadetree @sbux27 @JulieWalks @2girls2boys @MrLilShadetree @3daymug (Picture courtesy of @3DayTweepsCHI)
Posing with Aunt Julie before at Opening Ceremonies! Sooooooo excited!!!!
Listening to Dr. Sherri lead Opening Ceremonies!
My wish is for this adventure to also be a celebration of all we’ve accomplished in the fight against breast cancer!
And we’re off! Aunt Julie and I are such old pros at this that we don’t even need ponchos in the rain anymore!
Relaxing at #Pit2 with my fellow @3DayTweepsCHI walkers @LilShadetree @juliewalks @mrlilshadetree @2girls2boys and @sbux27! (Picture courtesy of super Pit 2 crew member/paparazzi @krazykate30)
I mean, it’s no Nutter Butters, but I guess @ScootersCustard will do… Oh wait, of course it will! It’s delicious!!
Niblette loves Aunt Julie and I so much, she didn’t want to let us go again! Ok, fine. It was just Aunt Julie. She is Niblette’s mom after all!
Goofing around with Aunt Julie, Miss Val, and Miss Tammy on the route. All those miles start to make people a little silly! (Picture courtesy of @2girls2boys)
Phew!! Aunt Julie and I made it to camp! (Picture courtesy of @krazykate30)
YAY!! We made it Aunt Julie!!!!
All of the @3DayTweepsCHI are home! @LilShadetree @JulieWalks @2girls2boys @sbux27 @mrlilshadetree! Time to join the Pink Party! But maybe let’s shower first. Eww. (Image courtesy of @lilshadetree)
Exploring Chicago Before the 3 Day!
After a quick respite during the Cleveland 3 Day, my “stunt double” MugSD was off to Chicago with Aunt @JulieWalks and the rest of the #3DayTweepsCHI team for the Chicago 3 Day! But first, they took some time to explore (and eat!) their way around the city, led by local team mate Miss Laura (aka @LDavis1800). Here’s some highlights from their two days of fun, plus the team dinner on Thursday night!
Ok, we’re here! Let’s go explore Chicago. I recommend that we take this pink colored “L” train, Miss Laura. Do you agree, Miss Val???
Ohmygoshlookhowfastwe’regoing!! Riding the “L” to get some authentic Chicago deep-dish pizza. This is SCARY!!!
Mmmmm. Stuff pizza will calm my tummy after that ride. STUFFED PIZZA!!!!
NOMNOMNOM. Deep dish pizza.
Hanging out with Miss Niblette, waiting for our pizza.
I LOVE Miss Niblette!
Chicago stuffed pizza! Soooo delicious. I’m so full, I can hardly hold my handle up!
Good morning, Day 2 in Chicago! That pizza was so good, I think I’m still full. Wait… what’s this? *GASP!* NOMNOMNOMNOM
Next stop, The Field Museum! Let’s go see the DINOSAURS Miss Niblette and Miss Laura!!! RWARRRRRRR!!!!!
Hmmm. @SuetheTRex seems to be thirsty. I got ya covered, Sue!!
Oh hi, Chicago!!! You’re looking lovely on this fine day!
Hmmm. This building seems to be smiling at me….
Yikes! What’s happening now?! Let me catch that water for you, Face Wall!!
Ooooohhhhh. It’s “Da’ Bean”!!! Just like on the @3DayTweepsCHI shirts!!!
Posing under The Bean with Miss Val, Aunt Julie, and Miss Laura. Chicago is so much fun!! I can’t wait for the walk to start!!
Hanging out at the @3DayTweepsCHI team dinner with our “flat” teammates (#FlatLauri aka @60milegirl, #FlatLisa aka @LisaBrewster, and #FlatKacie aka @kaaaaacie) and my new BFF #CureiOsity the monkey. (Picture courtesy of @3DayTweepsCHI)

Getting Ready for Chicago…
Before they left for the Chicago 3-Day, Aunt @JulieWalks took #MugSD in to work with her for the day to take care of some important last minute business:
I’ve heard this place is a blast! First up: catching up on yesterday’s Olympics results. @60milegirl has me OBSESSED with rowing these days!
Next up: Checking in with my Cleveland #the3day tweeps! No cupcake could keep me from missing them. Happy Day 1!!
And last but not least, Aunt Julie helped me print out my credential!! I’m all ready now for Chicago #the3day next week!!!
MugSD Update: Boston Wrap Up!
YAY!!! #MugSD finished her first full 3 Day event in Boston!! In case you missed the earlier posts, you can find them here:
You can also view all of MugSD’s pictures from Boston in one place, please click on this picture of MugSD with Miss Alison at Closing Ceremonies:
MugSD also wanted to extend an extra special thank you to Miss Alison (@glancz) and the whole @Pit4BOS team for taking care of her, letting her help out around your awesome pit stop, and sharing all of your pictures. It was SOO much fun - Mug SD said being part of Pit 4 was just as great as I always believed it would be!!
Unfortunately, MugSD won’t be Cleveland, but she’s already getting ready for the Chicago walk with the #3DayTweeps Chicago team. MugSD is also all set for the Michigan 3 Day, but is still looking for a host or hostess for the Twin Cities walk. If you’re interested, please email me at 3DayMug@gmail.com or tweet me @3DayMug. THANK YOU!!!!
