    Hi, Thanks for the Central Park pics, we live only 40 minutes away without traffic, but that never happens! But, haven't been in the park in almost 2 years, shame on me.

    Adding 60 minutes walking

    I am at 309/2000. :)
    We ran at the Y on the tm this morning--it was cold. 5.25 miles.
    Then hiked another 5 miles this afternoon. It was a gorgeous fall afternoon. I am pooped. Really should think about tapering for the race this weekend.:thumbsup2

    In looking at the minutes it may not seem like an impressive workout but it was spent swimming and I have a tremendous fear of being in water I can't stand up in. But I want to be able to swim so I took myself to a college pool and did some work. I couldn't get myself to go all the way to the other end of the lap pool but I'm proud that I went by myself and I did swim pretty steady for 25 minutes, some if even in water that would have been over my head.

    25 minutes

    We were in NYC this weekend because DH and some friends ran the New York City Marathon. Between walking on Saturday at the expo, etc. and scream teaming on the course yesterday, I racked up some minutes.

    11/2 - 30 mins walking
    11/3 - 240 mins walking

    Total 270/1300.

    YAY for you hmack!!! :goodvibes
    What is that they say about courage? It is not the absence of fear, but doing the thing anyway, even tho you fear it. Congrats on taking that first step!


    mrsdrake - I think the statistic is that on average, we each ingest 200+ bugs per year. Not sure where that comes from, but I know I've read it....

    dreamseeker - thank you for the wonderful pics. I've only been thru NYC changing planes, so it's like being there vicariously to see your photos.

    Walked with my Monday buddy today, then took the doggie. Add 81 minutes, brings me to 373/1500.

    200 bugs, ewwwwwwww!!!!

    Hmack, swimming is such a great workout and major props for toughing out your (now previous?!) fear of deep water and doing it anyway.

    I finalized the October numbers today - just our small group engaged in almost 22000 minutes of exercise last month - that's amazing!!:cool1::cool1:

    Congrats to all, and may we finish out the year strong!

    Great job!!!

    Very exciting! I hope we get to say hi sometime this weekend. :)

    That is a lot of minutes!
    I feel like we are short a few people this month. Still hoping some people make it onto the thread. I hope the title didn't turn people off!

    ****
    I was supposed to go the Y after work, but work was crazy, so I just came home and walked with Mike for ~1.7 miles. I am supposed to be tapering for the race so I won't beat myself up too much. Hope to hit the Y tomorrow. :)

    11/03 80 min run- It was a beautiful fall morning. I enjoyed seeing the many different colors of leaves

    11/04 60 min bike ride on the trainer. I watched a recording of the ING New York marathon! Wow, it was amazing to watch how easy some of the runners make it look! I am still feeling the soreness 2 weeks later from my first marathon and they finished in a time well over 3 hours faster then mine! CRAZY!

    350/1800-Just have to keep trucking!

    Rose - there is quite a bit of fluctuation, maybe folks are short on time to commit during the holiday season. When I hosted in April, there were 51 who set goals/reported in, but in October, there were only 24.

    I still think your thread title is great; can't imagine folks not joining in for that reason...
