I'd like to finish it. But where to find the time? I was able to do one last year because I wasn't training as much. I did a decent job (as first quilts go), but I'm not so sure it was worth the trade-off with all those training miles. I'm pretty sure DC would have been an even better walk without my blisters.
So this year, no finished quilt, but I have logged well over 135 training miles. And something tells me that I'm going to be better off because of it. ...I'll let you know for sure come November when I'm done walking Tampa.
The time will come when I finish this quilt. And hopefully many more. But for right now, training for this walk and curing breast cancer are just gonna have to come first.
Until next time, Happy walking!

This weekend, I had the pleasure of going on a training walk with @kscincotta. The plan for 10 miles turned into 11.5, but you won't hear any complaints out of me. Kristen is not only a wonderful training walk buddy, she knows her way around some great walking spots in Atlanta. Our walk took us in a figure-eight sort of path, with her place as the center of where the two loops met. I took a few pictures along the way and wanted to share the beauty of this fair city. I honestly have no idea what or where some of these things, are. I'll have to pass the baton to Kristen to help me out there. But I am sure of this: It's ITP Atlanta.

Before I'm done, I just have to give a really big "Thanks!" to Kristen. She not only joined me for a 11+ mile walk, she showed this suburbanite the charms and beauty that my nearby city has to offer. I am always SO lost when I go inside the perimeter, and I still have very little idea where I was without looking at my walk map, but this little taste makes me want to go back (and soon!) to explore some more.
