This sounds like fun!

I am 1,017 miles from my house to Magic Kingdom Drive (according to Google Maps!). I will start tomorrow morning and keep track of the miles I walk each day. I may keep track on Facebook and/or Twitter and/or LiveJournal, just to help keep me motivated.

Got up at 6:30 a.m. and walked the first 0.75 mi (out of 1,017 mi).

I am also taking part in the "Couch to 5k" plan, so the reason for the small numbers coincides with the time the plan tells me to walk/jog each day. The more time I spend on my treadmill, the milage should increase (and my waistline decreases, lol!)

Hello! I would love to jump into your challenge.





After I am done being a "mom taxi" this morning I plan on stopping at the walking trail near my house. My goal is to stop there at least 4 times a week.

Good luck to everyone! See you in Walt Disney World .

I'm In!!!

I have 914 miles to gate. I need as much inspiration and motivation as possible. We have a trip booked for September and not exactly sure I'm going to make it, but I am going to give it all I've got. It helps to be accountable, so here we go... I'm on my way to see M-I-C-K-E-Y!!

10%

I've finally reached 10% of goal!

Keeping in mind that the goal is 1748 miles, that's not bad

I started this last year and kind of dropped off (although I did train for, and run the Princess Half Marathon last week, so I suspect I came close to my goal, even if I didn't keep track.)

Google Maps says it is 863 miles from my house, so that is what I am going with. I will also likely run/walk it.

Right now I am 105/863, including my running time for January and February, giving me 758 miles left for the year. That is about 76 miles a month to finish by the end of the year. That is 19 miles a week. Yikes. Not sure that I am going to make that. I am gonna try, though!

I love thins idea and thought what great motivation so I hope I can join in. However, I checked and it is 3792.3 miles so I think I will start by walking to the closest airport with a direct flight which is 964.7 miles. Hope that is okay!
