The 2015 3-Day Walk for the Cure is under the feet and the 12th since I first strapped on my walking shoes.
Mother Nature sure likes to play with this Old Lady Walking.
2015 was the hottest Walk my teammates and I walked in. With temperatures in the low 80s and the famous San Diego hills, water sprays were welcomed as we walked.
Check out this morning’s temperature.
But it’s all good. We raised $5.5 million for breast cancer research.
We had a smaller team this year. Just like the early years.
As always, we met so many fascinating people. One couple walking wore matching t-shirts. Hers had her name, Toni. Her husband’s shirt read Toni’s Tiger.
Turns out that has been his nickname since birth. Talk about a meant-to-be relationship.
Another walker sure gave this Old Lady Walking hope. She is 72 years of age, a still active school psychologist, and reported she was having a much better walk since she had her knee replacement.
Never underestimate the power of determination.
I put together this slideshow to share some of the great memories. If you have boomer eyes like mine, you can click on the link above the video to get a larger view at authorstream.
Thank you again to all of my contributors. You rock! I could not do this without you. I’m already signed up for next year so stay tuned.
Wishing you all happy holidays and a healthy 2016!
