As arbitrary as it sounds, one day while out on a walk the thought process started - I have a goal for 100 (races) and 10,000 (miles), but I don't have anything for 1,000. So I came up with adding a goal of going for a walk 1,000 day in a row.
I started this goal about two weeks ago: http://1000daysofwalks.blogspot.com/ (only 985 days to go : )
Walking can be addictive, it's odd but there are times when I really 'need' a walk! I suppose if you're going to be addicted to something, this is a pretty good thing to be addicted to. It (walking) did not start out this way, but somewhere along the way it morphed into all of this.
If you are on the cusp for starting a walking program, or just curious of the health benefits, watch the video below. George Halvorson, Chairman & CEO of Kaiser Permanente talks about the the health benefits of walking 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.
How can something so simple be so beneficial?
