Still walking down 95 just south of Daytona next stop Melbourne

Saturday, October 06, 2012

46 miles to Melbourne. It's been over a month since I've posted anything. I put up 60 miles in that period and although I could have done better I'm still of the mindset that some is better than none. I have 86 days to put down 259 miles to make it an even 1000 for the year. I will make better progress 2nd and 3rd week in November on the Beach in St Augustine.





A view from my 8 mile walk yesterday.

  


I'm finally on the beach 1315 miles later

A little over a year ago I set a quest for myself. Walk the distance from my house to St Augustine Beach and this morning I finished that quest and I pondered during my walk, "where to next"? Instead of turning around and coming home I think I'll continue on to the Keys.

    I've decided to keep the trek alive by heading to the end of the keys and Fort Zachary Taylor 1772 miles total from home. 457 to go.

13 Months to walk from Maine to Florida. I'm almost to St. Augustine beach

Saturday, August 25, 2012

I set this goal the end of last July after downloading the app MAPMYWALK. I was fascinated with the tracking and record keeping this app provided for me. I decided to take on a goal of walking the distance from my home in Maine to our vacation condo on St Augustine beach in Florida a distance of 1315 miles. As of today I'm 12.17 miles from that goal. I've been taking days off to rest my knees and that seems to have helped.

    What a GREAT idea! How did you get into walking so far? How are you doing it? Can you send me some info on it?

    George I'm walking for exercise. In 4 years when I retire I hope to walk a distance for a cause. Muscular Dystrophy, because I have a young friend who is afflicted with a muscular degenerative disorder and I'd like to walk for him. I hope my knees don't fail me though.

    Walking is more useful to me now then when I was younger. Not so hard on the body versus running and such. Not like walking in the country on a dirt path. If I can't drive there, a walk on the sidewalk in my neighborhood is still good exercise.
Good luck on your pending accomplishment. I might have missed it. Are you walking for a cause or personal fitness or accomplishment? emoticon

    I had thought about doing something similar but didn't realize that there was an app for that! I guess I will have to look for it.

Great job!

48 Miles and new sneakers

Sunday, August 05, 2012

I've discovered some relief for my knee pain with my cryo pack, but I'm hoping that this knee pain dissipates and I'm able to finish this quest.
