Today I woke up at 7 am, not my typical start of a Saturday, to participate in the first Dynamic Walk-A-Thon with Eva Longoria in Marbella. In case you missed it, I was writing about this event here.
I was really surprised with myself, that I could wake up so early without a flinch. Guess, a chance to see Eva Longoria worked as a great motivator. Although I am not a starstruck person, she is one of my favorite celebrity rich girls, because of her amazing and funny portraying of Gabriela Solis on Desperate Housewives as well as her involvement with charity work. Eva is also strikingly beautiful with exceptional taste.
So, let’s get back to Dynamic Walk-A-Thon. I was happy, that my husband participated with me, it wouldn’t be so fun without him and I wouldn’t be able to have such cool photos of my-cute-self.
So, after we registered and paid the fees, we were handed special Adidas t-shirts and caps. Everyone was wearing the same t-shirts which was kinda cool!
As almost nothing in Spain starts on time, this event was not the exception. Which was fine by me, as I had a chance to have a picture with a handsome retired Spanish basketball player Fernando Romay I never felt so tiny before. This was a weird feeling.
And soon the walk-a-thon will begin! Mayoress of Marbella – Angeles Munoz, Dutch celebrity Sylvie van der Vaart and Maria Bravo are walking towards the start.
A lot of paparazzi want to capture the moment when the important Marbella girls untie the red bow!
While I was posing for my photo to be taken, we lost precious time and so there were no possible chance to catch-up with the leaders. They were way ahead of the rest. Well, at least I have a cute photo. It was definitely worth it! But if I knew that first three walkers will get presents and a kiss from Eva Longoria on the stage, I would definitely walk much faster. Guess, I should begin my training for the next years’ Dynamic Walk-A-Thon with Eva Longoria in Marbella.
The route of the Dynamic Walk-a-Thon was magnificent! It was a great pleasure to walk around the most amazing places in Marbella.
Also, it was exiting to walk a few kilometers on the main road escorted by police on cars and motorcycles. Made us feel special.
But my most favorite part was the beach promenade.
On the finish I felt and looked like this dog, with my tongue hanging. It wasn’t a pleasant sight, so there is no picture of me.
And finally Eva Longoria arrived! She was not walking the Walk-A-Thon, but everyone was still excited to see her. Eva was all smiles and giggles, she posed for numerous pictures and looked relaxed and terrific!
It was absolutely not possible to get closer to Eva Longoria, as so many photographers and reporters surrounded her at all times.
And then the moment Eva Longoria left in this car, we also went home, as it was so hard to stand or have fun after walking 9 km. Although there was a great concert and some attractions for children.
So, to sum it all up – I had amazing time. I will definitely participate in Dynamic Walk-A-Thon with Eva Longoria in Marbella next year and I am sure a lot more people will join this marvelous event. This is great fun, exercise and a chance to help children in need. I felt good about myself today, although every muscle in my body is so sore and I can’t even sit properly while writing this article. It was a great day!
But the philanthropic weekend with Eva Longoria in Marbella will continue today in night club Aqwa Mist, Puerto Banus. There will be an exclusive cocktail party for VIP guests. And tomorrow on Sunday the 19th of August at 8pm at the Meliá Don Pepe Hotel, Eva Longoria will celebrate the Global Gifta Gala – charity dinner held for the Cesare Scariolo Foundation, the Eva Longoria Foundation, and the Malaga Club de Fútbol Foundation. The dinner menu for the Global Gift Gala has been designed by two chefs from Marbella, two Michelin stars holder Dani García (Calima) and a Michelin star chef Diego del Rio (El Lago).
I am not sure I will be able to go dancing tonight as I planned before, maybe my couch is the best option.
