This very week I was thinking that I wanted to do one of these special events’ walk. Then, today, I received a flyer about the MS Fun Walk. It was perfect. So here I come:
The thought didn’t come out of nowhere, no. It came from something that was born in September of 2007. Suddenly I found this new friend and she found me. We had a lot of interests in common including Latin dancing and life style, but more than anything we had this “too much energy” feature in both of us. So one day she invited me to do the Seven Bridges Walk and I said yes. We couldn’t finish it but we walked four hours straight. We were not prepared for the whole thing, no food, no water, no proper shoes, nothing, so we did well.
After this our friendship bloomed and now and then we go for walks of all types. Recently my friend was enlisted to do the Oxfam Walk, a weekend walking in a team of four, 100 km! Well that was too much for me, I didn’t choose to start the preparation now for this event in August, but I am keen to do some shorter training walks with her and to walk for fun.
This is her team and walk:
She will be away for a few weeks and that is when I’ll be doing the MS Walk.
