Day 1 is in the books! It was a little over 20 miles, and overall I think my feet are doing okay. We had a great day today, with really a perfect day for walking. There wasn't a lot of sunshine, although you could still get a sunburn, and the cloud cover kept temps in the 60s. Perfect. Just a hint of mist around 2pm, but not enough to make anyone unhappy.
The day started early, at about 5:30a for most of us, but the cloudy skies also helped to keep morning temperatures pleasant. So it wasn't a frigid start to the walk or anything like that. Everyone, as is typically the case with these things, was in a GREAT mood! And why not!? We're there to have fun and find a cure for cancer.
Here's a friend of a friend of mine; every year it seems the circle of friends and people who know someone doing this walk gets tighter and tighter, which is just great. This woman was walking with her husband. Awesome!
Kimberly King greeted us this morning with weather live shots from the event; here's a picture of her, myself, and Barbara-Lee Edwards, who is doing this for the 9th time I believe. 8th or 9th. Many times.
