Hottie Stalking

September 13th, 2008 • Posted in Walk Journal

Last weekend was the Susan B. Komen 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk. Many of our friends from the Warming Hut Hotties were participating, so we decided to go out and be cheerleaders. The Hotties were there to cheer us on at the Avon Walk and it made such a big difference, so we wanted to do […]

Walking on Sunshine

July 19th, 2008 • Posted in Walk Journal

We did it! Last weekend, Pip and I joined 3,200 other people to walk 39.3 miles at the Avon Breast Cancer Walk. So far, $7.5 million dollars were raised by walkers.
We woke up bright and early on Saturday morning, so that we could arrive at Speedway Meadow in Golden Gate Park by 5:00 am. Although […]

Hot Hot Heat

The Avon Walk is a couple of weeks away! We’ve started tapering down our miles. Last weekend, we did only one long walk — an 18-mile walk to Tiburon with the Hotties. The Bay Area was experiencing a heat wave. We started our walk at six in the morning, and the temperature was already in […]

Getting There

June 18th, 2008 • Posted in Walk Journal

This past weekend we logged a lot of miles. We did 22 miles around San Francisco on Saturday, and then on Sunday, we did a 13-mile walk from the Presidio, across the fog-ensconced Golden Gate Bridge, into Sausalito and back. 35 miles… that’s just four miles shy of the total mileage we will do on […]

A Busy Week

June 9th, 2008 • Posted in Life, Walk Journal

What a busy week it’s been! Last Saturday, we did a 12-mile walk with the Hotties. Starting from the Warming Hut in the Presidio, we walked over to Cole Valley. Our major climb was up Stanyan St. to Tank Hill. Although overcast, we still got great views of the city. On the way back, we […]

I’m walking. Yes indeed, I’m walking…

The training continues! For the Memorial Day weekend, we did a couple of walks. On Sunday, we did a 15 mile loop starting in Potrero Hill. Instead of starting our walk long the Embarcadero, we decided to mix it up a bit and walk to the Castro and then go down Divisadero until we hit […]

I’ve always wanted to do the Bay to Breakers but I always forget about it until the last minute. This year was no exception. Instead, Pip and I did a bayside walk from Potrero Hill to the Presidio. We started our walk at the SFSU Mission Bay campus where the day was starting to warm […]

From Grand View to Lover’s Lane

May 10th, 2008 • Posted in Walk Journal

Pip and I just got back from doing a twelve mile training walk with the Warming Hut Hotties. Today’s walk included a few hills. As usual, we started our walk at The Warming Hut and walked up and out of the Presidio. The weather was a bit cool to start, but the skies were clear […]

Ten Years Ago

May 10th, 2008 • Posted in Life, Walk Journal

Last weekend, we only did a short four mile walk to the Ferry Building, because we celebrated my mom’s birthday and attended our friend Bryan’s AIDS Ride fundraiser. Watching him train for the ride brings back so many memories from my first ride in 1998. I can’t believe it’s been ten years! I dug out […]

Walking and Cheering

April 30th, 2008 • Posted in Walk Journal

Last weekend we did a fourteen mile walk with the fabulous Warming Hut Hotties. It was a great weekend for it. We were blessed with a sunny day. It was still a wee bit cool in the shade, but any San Franciscan knows that’s what layers are for.
As usual, we met in the Presidio. We […]
