Yes, I read it. I have to say that when I read her entry yesterday, I did think that 12K (or was it 14?) was a long way to walk, but I didn't comment. How funny that she got onto her readers for not saying anything!
14 kilometres is almost 9 miles.
I replied to her post today with a story about one time when I was younger and my stepmom had dropped a friend and I off at horseback riding lessons. She was going to visit a friend who owned a farm. Someone asked her how far away it was and she said "oh, it's only two blocks north and then two stop signs". Well after our lesson we waited and then got tired of waiting so we decided to walk. Well, let's just say two blocks north and two stop signs is a lot further in the country than it is in the city. We walked 11.5 kilometres (almost 7.5 miles) and were exhausted. My stepmom was furious we had left, but secretly I think she was a little proud we had walked so far.
