A couple of months ago we signed up to do the Malta Half Marathon Walkathon - that's 21km! The event took place two days after my birthday, so after having recovered and rested on Saturday, we were up bright and early on Sunday morning and we made our way to the starting point of the Walkathon. There were tons of people taking part; before we started the Full Marathon runners had set off and a while after we started the Half Marathon runners took off... and overtook us easily!
There were some very boring parts to the walk, especially when you're on main roads with nothing but tarmac around you but overall it was a great experience and the feeling of satisfaction at the finish line was immense. So hopefully we'll be on track for the 2013 event :)
