Walking to Hilton Head

In thinking about my walks, and trying to figure out how I would know how many miles I walked, I found this website. It helps you map out your walk, and know exactly how many miles you are walking. I mapped my neighborhood loop, and it is 1.15 miles. I think I need to make a bigger loop, if I am going to walk 280 miles by May 23rd.

My progress, so far, has been slow. I did walk the loop on Monday night, and that was when I came up with the idea. So, I'm counting those miles. Then Tuesday night, I had Bible Study, and last night it was raining and I went to the hospital to see my Mom. (She just had a hip replacement). So, I'm hoping to be able to walk today after work.

I've had some people join me on my "walks." My sister-in-law, Amy, will be walking with me in Florida, and my Aunt Shelly will be walking with me in California. Now, if I could only find someone to walk with me here. I would love a walking buddy.

I'll walk with you! I can bring the double stroller with the kids in it, YOU could push it! (does it count as more miles if you push a stroller?)

I walked two miles today at school for our Run-a-thon. Found a "pedometer" free app on the iphone and it worked pretty good. I might buy one though. I did buy the weight watcher one today. Mike and I are going to do some research tonight to find the best thing to help me track my miles! I'm so excited to be walking "with you".
