5:05pm Arrival in Carlsbad! 15.5 miles today!
Well you can’t keep her down for long! Pretty much right after I posted the photo of her lying down with ice packs, she was already up again — taping her shins and ready to take on the last leg of today’s revised itinerary: Camp Pendleton Main Gate to Carlsbad: the last 4.5 miles of the day!
Here she is — slowly but VERY determined to get to Carlsbad!
In her own words:
See the map below for how this difficult day actually progressed.Monica, May 14th
I definitely got quite a lot of mileage walked — just not all in a continuous line!!
I am SO GLAD to have Bill close by for situations like today!
Things could have ended in disaster without this incredible man watching out for me!

Dr. Monica would like nothing more than to help
ALL the animals world-wide! So she has officially registered docwalks4animals as a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity whose mission is to support wildlife and environmental conservation projects.
“If you routinely give something to charity each year, I hope you will consider adding docwalks4animals.org to your list of supported charities. We are brand new, but I put together what I consider a very talented and dynamic board of directors, who bring diverse talents to our organization and, with your help, I am confident we can do great things for our planet.”
