World Walking Day
Sunday, May 04, 2014
Yesterday was World Walking Day and the American Volkssport Association (a national nonprofit organization of nation-wide hiking clubs) sponsored a walk in San Antonio, Texas. Since my wife used to be the Executive Director of this organization, I volunteered my time as the "official" photographer. I also got to do the 10K walk in a very historic part of San Antonio. I wanted to share of few of the pictures taken during this celebration.
Here is a picture of some walkers registering for the event.
Here are the current President and Executive Director of the organization. They stamped the walking books of the people who finished the walk.
Here are a few pictures of walkers along the route.
While the early morning sun played havoc with taking pictures of many of the scenic locations, there was still a lot of cultural and historic things to look at.
Here I am during a portion of the walk. Yes, I still need to lose some more weight...
All in all, it was a great day for walking and I got to meet some great people! I also got to see some new parts of San Antonio!
