Last Sunday Walk with Joan before San Francisco--6.98 miles

Dahlia's on Haven Avenue
Today was my last walk with Joan until after the San Francisco 3-day.  Next Sunday I'll be finishing my 60 miles.
Joan and Yours truly
 Joan always greets me with "Hello Darling" ...then we kiss ... then we're on our way. There's no better way to start the week! 
I took it easy today, as you can see.  I wanted to be good to my heel ... my right toe ... and now, my left toenail.  I'm icing my heel as I write and will soak the foot when I'm finished.
This, by the way, is stating facts ... NOT whining!
A gal decked out in pink passed me.  She was wearing an Avon breast cancer shirt. The back of her shirt said "In it to End it!"  I like that.  If she's doing the New York walk ... she'll be taking her first step October 16th.  I did the Avon Breast Cancer walk many years ago.  Saturday is over 26 miles of walking and trust me ... that's a lot! 
We're ALL in it to end it ... 2 days, 3 days, 1 day ... 5 miles or 60 miles. Running or walking.

I sat by the pond for a bit ... watching the model sailboats being prepared for a race.  As I looked out I realized that all those lines holding the new growth in place had ribbons on them.  Take a look:
Pink ribbons
I took a picture from this spot before, but I don't remember all those ribbons being pink.  There are hundreds of ribbons.
It symbolizes why I'm walking next week.
I'm walking for US ALL ... I'm walking to END IT!
Wrap up tomorrow ... Thank yous on Tuesday ... On my way to San Francisco (again) on Wednesday.


  1. Great post! Can't believe you'll be here in a few days. xoxo

  2. I'm not whining either when I point out I didn't walk yesterday or today because I want that tiny freaking blister to heal ;)

    A veritable sea of pink ribbons...almost like a cosmic reminder...
