Instead of taking a picture on my walk today ... I took this picture of what I came home to:
Ah ... there's nothing like a "welcome back mom" greeting from JH!
I just HAD to give him a scritch or two.
I got out later than I wanted to this morning ... so I cut my walk short. Let's call it 4 miles, ok? It's getting hot ... but the cooldana and water bottle kept me reasonably cool.
Boston walkers had to cut day 1 short yesterday. Some women who train with Burt's Babes and are doing the Boston walk said that a lot of walkers went to the hospital ... some left the event ... but most stayed on and are walking today.
I'm so proud of these walkers.
20 miles a day is NOT easy ... and in this heat ... it's doubly difficult!
I bet they're thinking, though, "not as difficult as a diagnosis of breast cancer!"
As one walker said "We walk because we can."
