A reminder, that the St.Petersburg Aidswalk, will be held September 8th, 07, not too far in the near future.

Ed and I have walked in this for the past two years. I just came back from my doctors office for my quarterly blood tests appointment, and signed Ed and Myself up to walk with my Doctors office team. We're looking forward to it. Two of his office assistants are walking in it.

Proceeds from this walk will benefit the clients of ASAP ( AIDS service Association of Pinellas, INC ), and For AIDS Care Today (FACT).

Hello Everyone,

The alarm clock went off at 5:15 this morning, and I sluggishly got myself out of bed ! I decided to let Ed sleep a little longer.( He looked too comfortable). First thing I did, was sit in a hot tub of bath water, relaxing myself for today's events.

We left the house around 7:35 this morning, and arrived at Northshore Park, in St. Petersburg, around 8:10AM. The parking lots were already getting full, but there was still no problem finding a spot.


It was a hot day today,(Didn't seem as hot as last year), but fortunately, there was a nice breeze blowing most of the morning, that helped to keep this years walk for us a little more comfortable.


Today was the 4th Annual St. Petersburg Aids Walk, and this was the third time, that Ed and I walked in this event ! The first event was in 2004.The goal of today's Aidswalk, was to raise $125,000.00. So far $117,000.00 has been collected.(94%) There won't be a final tabulation for a little  while yet. I am also not sure at this point, the amount collected by our group. Will find that out later. It was announced that the "Tampa Bay Bears" Team, had raised the most amount of money, of all the teams today.

After arriving this morning, we went to the registration tent and and finalized everything there. I am glad we did that early. By, 9:00 am, all five of the registration tents had long lines of people registering. The walk was to begin at 10:00 am but was delayed slightly, because of the time it took, to get all the people registered. So, I think it started around 10:20.

Ed and I met up, with two of the walkers from my doctor's office staff, and we had a very brief chat at the Bio-scrip tent. I believe there were probably 6 walkers in our group, but everyone decided to split up a little bit, as we all walk at different paces. Everybody seemed pumped and ready for the walk !!

Ed and I agreed, that the turn out today seemed much larger than last years turnout. I think it's getting larger each year. So, It's great to see that kind of participation ! Once again, I am estimating that there were over 2,000 walkers. My estimations are usually low,

The  National Anthem was sung, A prayer said, and many of us had a moment of silence, in remembrance for those that have lost their lives to Aids.... The ribbon was cut, the walk began, the line of people seemed to go on for a very long time. Young, old ...A wonderful mix of people, all there, showing love and support.

Ed and I were amazed at one woman in particular walking. She had lost her son to aids. I am thinking she was probably close to 70 years of age , and using a walker. But, she was right there with everyone else. Got to love her !!

 It  took Ed and myself about an hour and 15 minutes to complete the 5-k walk. Plenty of bottled water, ( supplied by the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast), juices, apples, fruits, and bananas were also supplied to anyone who desired anything, at various spots along the route. Once again, The aidswalk "Marshalls" were at numerous locations, smiling , waving, handing out water, and keeping everyone moving right along. They all did a fantastic job !! The St. Petersburg police force also did a great job in traffic control at some of the intersections.


After the walk, and after watching the entertainment that followed,( for about an hour), Ed and I left the park, and went out for lunch. We actually went to a buffet, and both of us just pigged out !! I think we put on the calories we burned off !! But , both of us were pretty hungry. We then stopped at our little local tavern in Clearwater, I had my NA Sharps beer, Ed had his Miller lite, we got home, showered, and both of us crashed out for about 4 hours ! I think the minute I hit the bed, I went right out !!

It was a moving, uplifting and an emotional event today. Will be looking forward to next Aidswalk !
