    I enjoyed the walk, I did 11K (that's what they marked in my book)!!! I am so excited because this was all new to me. The volunteers were great. Even though I didn't get a chance to meet anyone from the group I still had a great time. I am glad I found this group and I hope to link up with some of you in future walks!!!
