And We're Walking, and We're Walking,... and We're Stopping.
I'm a bad blogger of late because, since we're getting to higher numbers in our 3Day training, all I do is walk, sleep, walk, work, walk, work, walk, work, knit, work, walk walk walk.
Last Saturday we got our sorry behinds out of bed at 4:30AM to be in San Francisco by 6:30 AM for a training walk. So did 275 other walkers. I'll bet the neighbors were thrilled with the pre-walk safety talk and cheering.
I'm not used to being with so many women who are NOT knitters but I think the woman who gave the safety/pep talk was wearing a Koolhaas hat!
Here we are in our sleepy, make-up less pre-walk glory. Little did we know what we were about to face. Let's just say San Francisco = HILLS.
We even had some Doggies walkin' for the cause.
So, we've been training consistently as a team (except for the Alaska cruise) but this course kicked our @ss! It was (only) 10 miles long but we had to go up some very steep hills and by the end my feet were screamin'.
Some inspiration along the way:

Buffalo (or are they Bison?) in Golden Gate park:After the walk we went to the 3Day Expo. I was too tired to take any more photos but I did take a shot of our future home.
After the drive back and a nice refreshing lunch at Chilis, THIS is how I felt when I got home:
Tomorrow we're manning a booth at our local Farmer's Market to KIP and (hopefully)get some donations for our team fundraising. If you're in my area tomorrow, stop by and knit with us!
