Commentary: A walk to honor my mother and cure cancer

I am trudging through a drizzling rain when I come across this wooden footbridge I've never seen before. Well, that's not exactly true. I've driven this stretch of road a thousand times to the doctor's office, the mall. But walking is different, slower. And this early morning, deep into an 18-mile hike, I find myself noticing things I've never really noticed before. Back in April, I used this space to announce my participation in the Washington, D.C., leg of the annual Susan G. Komen 3-Day For The Cure, a 60-mile, three-day walk to raise money against breast cancer.
