Today, my daughter Erin and I walked 20 very painful miles to raise money for local food banks in the greater Boston Walk For Hunger. We raised $743, which can feed one meal a day for four people for a year!
It was a milestone for both of us, as we've done previous walks, but never the full distance. We are sore and hurting, but very happy. As always, I'm so proud of her- she made me do it.
Perfect weather, cool and clear. New route, over 40,000 walkers. Check the website after tomorrow for pics.
The secrets? Training walks, good walking shoes, good hiking socks (EMS) and petroleum jelly all over your precious tootsies. Yeah, I've got fewer and smaller blisters than previous years without it.
