Walk for Hunger photos!

Yesterday, my wife and I did the Walk for Hunger. Click on any of the images for a larger version.

We got up at the crack of dawn and took the pike into town.

We parked the car and registered at the Boston Common. When you get up this early, the crowd is pretty small. 43,000 people did the walk yesterday.

We walked down Comm Ave and saw some dogs.
We saw metal dogs. See the ball?

We saw big French dogs!

Then we walked under Mass Ave.

Some chipper volunteers guided us through Kenmore square...

...past Fenway Park.

We ran into a friend from Berklee!

Near Boston College, we saw some geese.

All along the 20 mile walk there were signs teaching us about hunger...

...about ouch...

...and about Soylent Green.

I never did figure out what "sunscree" was.

But I always knew how far we had traveled.

This sign was at about mile 10, the halfway point. If the "It" he was referring to was "walked half way", then he spoke the truth! Hard to argue with a pointer like this, regardless.

Soon after, the trail leads to the Charles river, where Harvard and MIT teams practiced rowing.

The views of downtown Boston were amazing, even in cloudy, windy weather.

Along the Charles River, there is a place where water fowl rule!

It never rained, despite the dark clouds.

We approached the Mass Ave bridge and prepared to cross it.

Once across the bridge, we were in the home stretch.

Back down Comm Ave, we passed statue after statue.
I was jealous of this guy, and ready to sit down!

Near the end, the sun started to break through.

We could see the finish line. Where did all these people come from? (cheaters!)

At each checkpoint, we got a mark or stamp.

And in the end, we made it. There were 43,000 walkers
and together we raised over $3.3 million!

Until next year...
