We're walking, yes indeed...

As many of you know, my knitting peeps and I joined the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk to raise money for breast cancer research. The walk itself is in September, and over the three days, we will walk 60 miles. Preparing for this involves lots of training, so yesterday, we participated in a 13 mile walk through San Francisco.
We arrived on-site at the Warming Hut at Crissey Field at 7 am, and were greeted by smiling faces of other walkers and a lovely view of the Golden Gate Bridge.

We set off through the park- up hills, through woods, and finally out into the city.

There was lots of scenery to be had, from rocky cliffs to the Sutro Baths to the lovely homes in Pacific Heights.

There was even an element of danger just to add excitement...

Finally, after 13 long miles (so long that they were really 14.5 miles), we made it back to Crissey Field, where we celebrated with a nutritious meal of hot dogs and lattes from the Warming Hut.
