This year, the Arthritis Foundation
"A Joint Walk" took place on Saturday, May 19. The weather was quite cool
(low 50s) with a slight wind made for brisk walking conditions.
The walk starts at Kirkland's Marina Bay
Park. From there we head up 85th St to 106 Ave where we bang a right heading south.
We stay on 106th Ave for quite a while; all the way past the park and ride and down
to Lake Washington Blvd. The course turns north from there along Lake Washington all
the way back up to where we started.
Yours truly raised $666
5 teams raised less money than little
As usual, Sam, the Golden Retriever, is a big hit. Everyone wants to stop and pet
Sam. Of course being the big ham that she is, she doesn't mind at all. Thanks
to Karen's continued training, Sam is able to do the 6 mile walk with little trouble.
I did the 10K walk in 1 hour and
40 minutes. This included 25 minutes on the cell phone while purchasing Eric Clapton
