I walked 20 miles yesterday. Yes, all 20 miles!
There was perfect weather for walking. The sky was threatening with some black clouds in the morning but thankfully, it did not rain. The temperature vacillated between warm and cool.
About 43,000 people walked yesterday. It was amazing to see all those people stepping out to support the Great Boston Food Pantry. The walk takes you up Commonwealth and Beacon Street, around the Chestnut Hill reservoir and into Newton, Watertown, Brighton, Cambridge and back into Boston.
The people at Project Bread put signs all over the route and I liked this sign. I do have a lot of heart and sole.
There were some great views on the walk. We walked along the Charles River and this was the view near the end.
This dog even walked most of the 20 miles. Way to go dog!
I was happy to see the balloons at the end! I felt great. Unlike last year, I wasn’t hobbling much and at the end, I felt awesome. I was very cheerleader like, which for me is totally unusual as I am not usual a rah-rah person. My feet felt surprising good. I only had one major blister and my feet looked pretty good, considering.
I took today off, to relax. While I am a little sore and my lower back is hurting, I am doing better then I thought I would.
I am looking forward to next year!
