Day 1 in the books

Posted: Updated:
20.3 miles today, and what a great day for a walk!  Cloudy and cool, not too damp, conditions that should be repeated tomorrow but won't be.  I had a chance to meet many people, including Delores from San Diego who's done ten of these - she finished just before me coming into camp today - and a friend from Carlsbad, too, who is walking for many reasons. . .including her friend who was supposed to be walking with her but was recently diagnosed and is now in chemotherapy.  What a great group of people this is.
 
What struck me most of all was all along the way, the shops and people who had treats and water out for everyone - it was so inspiring.  More coming in a few minutes - I'm about to do more stretching.  But Day 1 made a fantastic impression on me and I'm looking forward to tomorrow even with the rain.
