Kristine & Carolyn

In 2013, Kristine Poggioli and coauthor Carolyn Eidson became the first people known to have walked San Francisco’s historic 49 Mile Scenic Drive—not in one day (sheesh!), over one year. They did it by dividing the route into 17 bite-sized walks. The new walking adventure launched them into a new healthy lifestyle and resulted in a combined 75-pound weight loss. But perhaps more importantly, they had a blast walking the route, discovered new things about San Francisco, and grew closer together through the journey.

They knew they had to share the fun with other people who love San Francisco, so they researched the history along each mile of the Drive and turned their adventure into a turn-by-turn guidebook, cleverly titled: Walking San Francisco’s 49 Mile Scenic Drive.
