Wilshire walkers catch a weather break


Councilman Tom LaBonge, with a football in the orange jacket, and organizer Michael Schneider beside him posed with the walkers for a pic this morning before kicking off the Great Los Angeles Walk on Wilshire Boulevard.wilshire-walkers2-nov2010.jpg There was a bit of drizzle as the walkers left Pershing Square, but it looks as if the rain held off for the first part of the trip. Those who go all the way plan to walk the 15.8-mile length of Wilshire from Grand Avenue in Downtown to the statue of St. Monica at Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. They hope to begin stumbling into the Border Grill for post-walk refreshments about 5:30 this afternoon. Follow along on Twitter at #glaw.
