Into every life a little rain must fall

September 15, 2007

It’s Saturday, which means it’s training walk day. Work up to a drizzly, dark and cold morning. The perfect kind for rolling over and going back to sleep. Instead, I dragged myself out of bed, got ready, and went to the park. I figured, no one would show up and I could go back to bed.

The Ladies of Loantaka are a dedicated bunch. Three ladies pulled into the parking lot, ready for a wet, cold walk. They pulled on their ponchos and off we went. We started at 8:00 with four and as we walked the trail, we ran into six more. They had started at 6:30 and were already on the walk back from the first lap. Way to go ladies !

By 10 o’clock the rain ended and the wind died down. By 11 o’clock, the sun was breaking through the clouds. It was a beautiful day to walk 13 miles. The weather was the same as Day 1 of the 2006 NY walk.
