Since I got a pedometer in April I have walked 196 miles of about 1350 miles (depends on which map you use). I have 1147 to go or 6.2 miles per day til the marathon. I figure I am in CT now but must be getting close to NY.

We hope to do the DL half marathon (DD) and the 5k (me) in September of 2013.

Wish me luck!

Back again...

I've been traveling in Europe and haven't updated in way too long. We walked many, many miles on our trip but I didn't record any of them.

Back at home and this past week I walked 16.5 miles.

83/438

Hoping to "walk" to Disneyland before our Veteran's Day trip.

What a great idea... I came across the DISBOARDS 1 week ago and I love it... I'm a HUGE Disney fan... I'm starting effective Sept 1st training to become a runner. I'm going to do a 5KM to start ( maybe the 5km at Castaway in January, but I have to find out the details of that run since I'm travelling alone with my 2 DD's) then work my way to a 1/2 marathon.. Hopefully by 2012 I will be running in the Princess Half Marathon at WDW.. This walk to Disney is a great way to track my miles walking and running... I'm going to do this... Now to figure out how far I am from Disneyland... Ladies and Gentleman inspire me!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!:mic keyjum

We're heading to Disneyland in Dec 2012. I came up with the idea of walking to Disneyland back in June when I got my step counter (to keep me motivated to wear it). So, in that time (as I count my miles at the end of every month...found it too hard to keep track weekly), I've walked 138 or 1100 miles to Disneyland. Already contemplating extending it to be round trip milage. :P We'll see how far I get between now and Dec 2012.

It's been a couple weeks since I posted but I've been walking pretty regularly. Today I am going to tackle my "hilly" route for the first time since my knee surgery in Nov. 2010.

This is an awesome idea! So I just figured out that I am 1129 miles to WDW and my goals is going to be to finish this by the end of the year which means an average of ~56 miles per week... we'll see how this goals.. I'm at 26.14 miles so far this week so thats a pretty good start!



26.14/1129 or 2.3%
