Here's a shot of the beginning of the Boston walk.
It was very exciting ... especially since I'm from Boston and I felt as if I had gone home to walk!

Alissa ... you asked about training.
The 3-day provides a walker handbook that includes stretching exercises. There are training walks and trainers who will work with us.
How have I trained in the past?
I start out slow ... just a few miles a day (I have been doing that on the treadmill ... but will be walking outside when the ice melts!)
As a teacher, I have vacations and a summer to train. During the summer I walk between 6 and 8 miles a day. In Provincetown on Cape Cod, Beth and I have walked the bike trails by the National Seashore. I guess that's around a 10 mile walk.
3-day trainers hope that we will be able to do a back-to-back "double digit" walk (12 miles or more.) When I start walking outside I will try to walk the hills ... to get ready for SF.
Thank you ... thank you... for "being by my side" ... and for being so supportive!

  2. Is that pink spaghetti? I think I would like pink spaghetti. Bye.

  3. 'Berta, I'm so proud of you! Yes I do many miles on the bike, but I get to rest on the downhills! :)

    Anyway, please tell us about how you do your fundraising and if you need any ideas. I've been a fundraising consultant for the National MS Society and may have some ideas you could use. Plus everyone who reads your blog can share ideas too, I'm sure.
