Avon Breast Cancer Walk is now over! It was quite an experience.  



Here are my highlights.

   1. Raised $1839 for breast cancer research and treatment for those in need

       2.The walk on Sat started at Fort Funston and the opening ceremony was very touching.  I learned that every three minutes a someone is diagnosed with breast cancer. Not great news.

       3. There were 3800 walkers registered for this event and as of Sat they had raised 5 ½ million dollars.

       4. I walked over the Golden Gate Bridge twice without vomiting (I am afraid of heights).
       
      5. My favorite team was one called Save Second Base.  I also liked Hookers for Hooters and Dudes for Boobs.
        
       6. The markers were off. My Garman which is uses a GPS for measuring said I walked 27.75 miles. The markers for the walk said it was 26.2 miles.  The problem is that at 26.2 miles I was still ok. At 27 miles I was kind of pissed off and the last .75 miles were a killer!!  But I did it, and now I have accomplished my 30 year dream of completing a marathon, and did it for a great cause. Plus, instead of being in the back of the pack like I always am when I run, I was in the first 150 out of 3800 walkers to finish. 

      7. I'm not going back for the 13.1 mile second day walk. I don't want to blow my knees out!

Marcy, First and foremost … congratulations on completing the marathon and for the funds you raised for such a great cause. Secondly, congratulations for not vomiting on, over or off the bridge. I am sure the fish would have loved it (LOL)

Kathleen,

It is actually scarier to drive over the Golden Gate than it was to walk it. It is also much cheaper, as you know.
