Walk 10,000 Miles: 3990
In 2013 added 1,441 miles to this goal bringing the current total to 3990. Back when I started this goal, I showed the 10,000 miles in a picture - the equivalent of walking from Miami, Florida to Anchorage, Alaska and back. On that map, current mileage would put me near the town Whitehorse in the Yukon.
2011: 989 miles
2012: 1560 miles
2013: 1441 miles
Ironically I have no goal for how many miles I will walk in 2014. The other goals drive my actions. I'll just have to wait until 2015 to see what this turns out to be : )
Complete 100 Races/Events: 45
In 2013, completed 15 races bringing the current total to 45. The break down for 2013:
12 - Half Marathons
1 - 10 Miler
2 - 5Ks
I guess I do favor the half marathon distance. This just sort of happened. Many of the half marathons I do are also full marathons and at some point on the course there is a split - half marathoners to the right & full marathoners to the left. Each time one of those splits occurs - I am thrilled, elated, thankful,... I'm not doing another 13.1 miles that day!
However, one of the events I want to do in in 2014 is a 32 mile walk around Manhattan. To prepare my body and my mind for walking 32 miles, I will need to do a marathon or two.
To stay on track with this goal, I'll need to average one race a month in 2014.
1,000 Days of Walking: 168
This is a new goal created on July 17, 2013. The goal is to walk (go for a walk specifically) for 1000 consecutive days. As of yesterday, it has been 168 consecutive days consisting of 231 walks (some days I take two or three walks).
I really like this goal - it forces me everyday to not get lazy. Also, the fear of having to start all over at day 1 is a huge motivator to get out there, no matter what.
Happy New Year !
