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.
