I'll share the Burke-Gilman with you ladies any day.

Here's what I saw when I crossed the Fremont Bridge yesterday to get onto the Burke-Gilman trail: 2,400 women on the last leg of a 60-mile walk that raised over $6 million for cancer research.




Man, this was awesome: apart from maybe one or two tired women grimly trudging to the finish, the whole trail was full of laughing, partying women who'd walked almost 60 miles and were closing on the finish. Saturday night they'd spent camped in Marymoor Park - can you imagine how fun that was?

Next year, I am so there.

I'm not so sure boys are allowed. On account of the cooties and all.
