Walking 30 Miles in 30 Days seemed like it was going to be quite a challenge at first. By day 7, I was ill and could hardly function. I laid in bed miserable with a 102.4* fever. But the fever broke and I was determined to start again. So on what should have been day 8, I started over on day 1. There were days that I barely walked a mile and there were days when I walked 2-3 miles. There were days when I went alone. There were days that I had company...thanks, Sam for pushing me to walk longer! There were days when the last thing I wanted to do was walk, but I did it. All 30 days straight. And you know what...I didn't just walk 30 miles, I walked 49.45 miles! I would have pushed myself for that extra half mile had I realized I was so close to 50 miles!
I grew to enjoy my daily walks. I've signed up for a 5k in March. (It actually was supposed to be today, but was rescheduled.) And I've lost five pounds! That in itself is motivation enough to keep going and going and going. Oh yeah, I also gave myself another goal- walk/run 365 miles in 2013. I've walked a total of 57.7 miles so far or 15% of that goal.
