    Week 20! I missed last week b/c I was at WDW!

    728.33/1129 = 64.5%

    70+ miles at WDW sure helps raise my percentage!!

    Week 21

    775.8/1129 = 68.7%

    Half marathon training is definitely helping my step count! How are my fellow walkers?

    I'm not on the boards a lot, but I'm doing this!

    I had a major health scare last week (I feel fine but I'll find out over the next month if I'm okay) and am now determined to lose some weight.

    I'm 1748 miles from the front gates. There's no way I can do this in a year, but I want to see how far I CAN get. I'm starting today and have .98 miles so far! :jumping1:

    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). :thumbsup2

    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.


    [​IMG]


    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 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!!

    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!
