Go Giants!!

Thanks to my wonderful hubby and his sister I was lucky enough to have the experience of a lifetime last night. I got to attend Game 2 of the World Series and watch our San Francisco Giants win 9 - 0!!

Wow! The energy and the excitement as our team trounced the Rangers is hard to describe. Suffice to say, it was an experience I will never forget!

Go Giants!!

We Walked

Since Sunday night I've tried to come up with the words to describe the experience of doing the 3 Day for Cure. Amazing, incredible, life changing, powerful ... I could go on and on.

But I've finally stopped because there is really only one word - Indescribable.

We walked. Young, old, male, female.
We walked. Tall, short, fat, thin.
We walked. Blonde, brunette, gray, bald, and yes even pink.
We walked. Fast, slow, together & alone.
We walked. With blisters, bunions, limps & bandages.
We walked, Black, white, & all shades in between.
We walked. In sunshine, rain, fog and wind.
We walked. Through smiles, tears, laughter & in silence.

We walked. For countless reasons, but with one common purpose.

I still have so many images in my mind and I know that over time most will fade. But the one enduring image that will stay with me is the way we walked. It was something I noticed in every single walker - that stride of determination and purpose - putting one foot in front of the other - step after step, mile after mile.

We walked.

Beautiful walk in Sausalito today. Fed, showed, cozy in our pink tent.
Back in camp. Another 20 miles done.
Lunch break. 10 miles.
Pit stop #1. The Coasties greeted us ringing the bell & wearing pink shirts.
Listening to camp wake up. Foggy. We walk across GG Bridge today.
Slept well after Judi & I stopped giggling. Camp is a sea of pink tents. Sore thighs - happy heart :-)

20 miles!

I finished around 5:30 pm. We had a great dinner & the best shower of my life. Then to bed.

I just finished lunch. Having a grand time with old & new friends. The energy is amazing. Heading for Ocean Beach now.
@ Pit stop #3. 7 miles
At our first pit stop.

It's Showtime!

I'm up, showered, dressed, drinking coffee and ready to go! I hardly slept last night - I felt like a 7 year old on Christmas Eve!

The Adventure is about to begin. I'll be walking 60 miles with 1400 of my new best friends and I can hardly wait!!
