Another 8km …

…or MORE

The excuses I made for not doing 10km at the sun “not” rise monster were:

  • I did a 10km the weekend before
  • I will do 8km the day after

very very valid excuses (or not) 😉 😉

So bright and early last Sunday morning I made my way to the Zoo lake to take part in an 8km race walk in support of hospice (you all know by now I don’t run). What I liked everything from the view to the crowd and the cause, what I didn’t like about doing the 8km you do the same 4km route twice – not good for picture-taking if you ask me 😉 😉 – but I did it and of course got loads of pictures in the process

Everytime I am this venue, I take a picture of this view :-)

Later in the day, I looked out my window and this was what I saw. Too good to stay indoors!

I am just in awe of sunsets

What do you do when the weather is beautiful, take the dogs walking. PS: I do put my dog on a leash until we get to this mini park where I release him if the park is empty
