Day 1: 19.6 miles
Today's walk started off as the sun rose and tried to break through the clouds. It never did. Luckily I was able to finish the walk before the rains started at three o'clock. One surprise today was stopping in at Saint Paul's Episcopal Church in Natick where I served for several years. It was great to be greeted by Pat's warm smile. I made a new sign for the back of pack and hit the road. The stories are amazing. One woman, walking her 11th, was diagnosed after walking her third. She walks onward. Her small cookie business enabled her to support the walks with tips to beat cancer, expand prevention and make "pink" cookies. She walked fast - enabled us to finish early. She had a long list of people she walked for - in memory of and to support. Lead on. Lead on.
