Sunday's 12-mile "Butt Burner" Training Walk

Sunday Morning's Route

This morning, we met at 7:00am at the Transit Cafe in the Presidio. It was again foggy and chilly, but we were up for another 12 miles! The route we did today is one that we affectionately call the "Butt Burner". We walk the length of Divisadero Street all the way across the city until it becomes Castro Street, then go to 24th Street in Noe Valley. We usually walk second half of the walk in reverse, but mixed it up a little bit today. Instead, we walked over to Dolores Street, to Duboce, to Hayes, and back to Divisadero.

We had a "field trip" today to one of the beneficiaries of the Immediate Impact Walk! We stopped at UCSF Mt. Zion and went to a visit to the "Friend to Friend" store. We talked with Chris and Margo who told us more about the amazing work you do every day helping people get fitted for bras, wigs, prosthesis who could not otherwise afford these items. Such an amazing place, and we were so happy that they were able to have us come visit!

It's the Green & Grey Girls!!
