No turning back now...

I just signed my 2 friends and myself up for the first "Corre-caminata" ever to be held in our town. This is the first time I've ever done anything like this, too.

I tried to find a translation to Corre-caminata. It's not a Walk-a-thon, because we don't pledge anything or raise money through it. I found the term Fun-Run, and I like that. We can walk or run 7 km (4.3 miles). Whoever makes it to the finish line receives a certificate.

My friends and I had started walking over a month ago, and last week we heard about this Fun-Run and decided to try it.

  • I hope I don't embarass myself.
  • I hope I don't come in last.
  • I hope I don't get blisters.
  •  I hope I have fun!
Wish us luck!


  1. Good luck! Sounds like a great time.

  2. If you get too inspired and find you have walked too far. If you find yourself on the East Coast of the U.S. looking at a white farmhouse with escaped goats running around the unruly yard, I will greet you. I will welcome you with iced tea, some baked goods, and I will share my band-aids for your feet! I would invite you for dinner and fly you home! lol :) lol:)

    Seriously, I'm impressed that you would do this. I know several people who do walks and some even do marathons. I should do more walking. It's easy to deceive myself that eight loads of laundry in one day is an Olympic event, but I could do myself a favor by getting in better shape!
    I hope you have a good day at the Corre-caminata! The cartoon is so funny! My dog does that.

  3. Good for you! I´m too chicken, I won´t make it.... :)

  4. And I kinda wish you'd have asked me to join you! It just can't be fun doing it on your own! So I may see you at the half-way point!
    I'm proud of you!
