Day 1: Finished a Long Walk to Long Beach!


7:38 pm “Monica raced right past me to get to the aquarium fountain!” – Bill

“I made it!!!! 28 miles –67,408 steps in 13 hours and 38 minutes!!”

YESsssss! My amazing feet deserve a luxuriating foot soak in Epsom Salts!

My deepest and sincerest thanks to everyone who has been cheering me on today — I couldn’t have done it without such amazing moral support!

Most especially I would like to thank my husband Bill for driving ahead and providing for all of my needs on the road, from basic logistics to much TLC!
You are the greatest, Metz!!

I would also like to thank my twin sister Andrea for keeping my blog and social media up to date. She got up at 4:15am Swiss time to finish the day’s blogging! Love you, Seastore!

Dr. Monica has completed approximately 1/5th of the way from the L.A. Zoo to the San Diego Safari Park (via the Aquarium of the Pacific) in a fundraising urban walking mega-maration to help feed the animals at those 3 centers.
Please share this story with your friends and encourage them to make just a small (cost of a cup of coffee) donation — every cent can help feed an Octopus or an Okapi and lots of other animals in need during the COVID-19 Lockdown.

Would you like to help?

  1. We were dying by mile 10 when we did 12 miles. I’m sooo impressed! Get some rest, now! Hugs!
