10Km all the way!

Posted by Hippo Bean at 6:13 PM
In past years the Hippo had to bail at around the 7Km mark, but this year she did the entire 10Km, since she's exceeded her goal by $425, thanks to Paul, Lek, Maria, Henry, Karen, Olivia, Joanie, Angus, Tom, Tim and Vincent's generous donations. My company raised a total of $1200. The day started out cloudy but not too cold and without fog, a rarity in Golden Gate Park. The sun came out after a while and it was a warm gorgeous day. Team AD walked with KMEL music and gorged on the free snacks (oranges, popsicles, fruit and granola bars, and chips) at each checkpoint along the route. Google got the best tshirts (as always) and one big Brazilian family was decked out in bright yellow tshirts featuring each member of the Simpsons, and wearing Minnie Mouse ears. The crazy Stanford band was playing well, crazy as usual. All this took a little over 3 hours. It was a fun day.
