Trekkin' in Santa Barbara

I've been away from the blog for awhile because of travel - first back to Kentucky to attend a wedding, and then last weekend in California for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

The Trekkin' for Ta-Tas team invaded Santa Barbara for our 2-day, 39.3 mile walk to support breast cancer.

We started out bright and early on Saturday and walked 26 miles!  Lots of local people come out to cheer, including cute dogs and even a cat or two!

There are pit stops along the way, but the people at cheering stations give out candy, wet bandanas, and lemons covered in sugar!

Sunday was a beautiful day with ocean views and 13 more miles to walk.

I made it the entire 39.3 miles with a couple of blisters and sore muscles.

You can see more pictures over at my Laura Treks blog.  Thanks to all my friends who helped me reach my goal so that I could participate in the walk!  It was an emotionally, fun-filled weekend!
