walk for hunger part two


hi every bloggie!
You might remember earlier in the month, I walked in the Project Bread Walk for Hunger 20 miler event. Here's my first blog post walking for hunger- part one. Well I took lots of fotos and even a couple videos that were not posted. Since I had lots of funds raised from my blog pals, I thought I'd finish sharing in today's post.

And we're off... a video from the initial mile. Oh.. I only walked the first 6 miles. Dogs were not encouraged to walk the event but I had to do my part for a few miles. We broke the rules...no arrests occurred though.
The walking route took the walkers along the Charles River. The Boston University Sailing team took advantage of the hot day.
Darn.. I was hoping that dog was Lady MFT- aka Miss Khyra. No luck.
Here's the Harvard Boat House... of course fancie.

Hmmm.. Dennis? DennistheVizsla is that you? I know you're always hungry but to come from Cali for food is a bit much.
Finally, we hit mile 19. Here is the gate to the Boston Common's Public Garden.
Walkers everywhere!
Just a perfect last mile to end the race.
The infamous swan boats.
Yes! Yeah.. that's what mom was waiting to see! Her 4 huge blisters were anxiously waiting to see it too!
Can you feel the energy and excitement? We did it!!!
And here's one more video of mile 17.
Thanks again every bloggie for your generous donations and I hope u enjoyed your visit to Beantown.

  7. A walk along the Charles River is so nice - thanks for sharing it with us, Norwood. Brings back lots of good memories to the Momster. That couldn't be Miss Khyra - tail isn't floofy enought - too bad though:)

    Have a great weekend.

  8. Too far! Too hot! You are lucky that they didn't make you walk the whole 20. I would hate to see you get blisters on your little furry toes.
