Saturday morning training walk

August 2, 2008

This mornings training walk was very well attended – 18 ladies showed up.  It was the second annual Tri-State Training Day for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer !! Training Walks were held throughout the tri-state area in an effort to get all of our walkers out on their feet all at the same time!

While we were waiting for a few more walkers, a bumble bee came towards me.  OK, it wasn’t really a bumble bee, it was my sister, Amy, dressed in her yellow and black biking gear.  She was going on a bike and run.  She completed the NY Triathalon 2 weeks ago.  She is my inspiration.

The sky was cloudy and it was really humid when we started walking.  About 3 miles out, it started to drizzle. One of the great things about Loantaka park is the path is covered by very thick tree canopies.  It has to rain pretty steady before it makes it past the leaves.  As we returned to the parking lot just over 2 hours later, the sky to the west was really dark and threatening.   About 20 minutes later, the heavens opened up and it poured.   We certainly lucked out and got our walk finished just in time.
