Weekend Walking: Around the Bays

So this weekends walk was something a little bit different to what I usually do - I took part in the 6.5km Around the Bays walk with my friend Nankz. It's an annual even in the city, you get to wear a number and every thing.

I usually only do the walk, some people run the 6.5km and some people chose to do a longer run (Rich did the 10km run).
Here's the scene as we tried to get close to the starting line - people everywhere! It was so packed.
 Almost through the starting "gate" - it took a while!
There's not much more to say about this walk, I've done it so many times before, but usually I only see one or two others walking once I get out of the city (not thousands).

Also any one spot the photo below with the guy dressed as a knight? Maybe I should go in costume next year - although a knight isn't really my first choice for a summers day. Rich told me someone was doing the 12km run dressed as a prawn!




Hope you guys all had a wonderful weekend xoxox

These are often in my city too! I should participate sometime, even if your landscape looks much nicer! :)

Walking is the only way to go! Running isn't good for ladies with boobage! We have one or two regular events like that, but I'm always sleeping in or some such malarkey! XXX

Looks like you had the perfect weather for a walk! I love going for a stroll when the sun's shining. I would never manage running a marathon, but I have thought about doing a walk before. I think we have several a year in my area, mostly aimed at raising money and awareness for breast cancer, I think. I'm sure the people in costumes must regret it after the first mile! Lol xx

How fun is that? Must be great with company to walk this distance. This is something I have yet to do, but not sure if I ever would. Guess it's no different from our trek in NYC? ;)

I do my best thinking when walking. What a beautiful day for this event!

I would probably collapse in a heap if I tried to run 10km. Rich is braver than me.
