60 miles down ... 60 more to go?

I'm on the plane, goin' home, after an amazing visit to San Francisco ... a beautiful city. I saw 60 miles of that city on a wonderful walking tour! I'm trying to upload pictures ... but I guess that's not as easy to do at 40,000 feet. (I have a lot of pictures ... so don't worry ... I'll get to that later.)
I want you to know that I walked every step ... slept in a tent ... showered in a truck ... ate sitting on a piece of cardboard on the ground ... met wonderful friends ... and have decided to walk again. Heck ... I didn't get one blister so why not! I'm hoping that Debra will train and raise funds so that she can experience this with me.
I want you to know that I raised almost $6000 with your help! The San Francisco walkers and crew raised almost $5 million for research and awareness. That's only San Francisco ... don't forget there are many other walks.
I carried you ALL in my heart ... and carried ribbons in honor of survivors or in memory of those we lost to cancer. I walked for my mom ... my friends Cynthia, Phyllis, and YOU AUNTIE BEE!!! I also walked in memory of my friend Lisa. It was an emotional journey.
Thank you for continuing to read what I have to say. I promise to jazz it up with some great photos!
