Walk-a-Thon. Again . . .
I marked my birthday last year by crossing off a goal of mine and doing a three mile walk around Wichita State University's beautiful campus (a very speedy walk too, if I do say so myself).
I'm doing it again this year. Saturday morning, June 13th. The weather is supposed to be spotty here in the Wichi-Wichi all this week but I'm doing the walk no matter what (I'll just wear some of my old sneakers and embrace my inner "Flashdance" to let my moobs be, uh, "accentuated" by the downpour. You've been warned, fellow people who walk for heart health!
Not that I've suddenly become the "picture of fitness and health" (more of a rough, crayon sketch) but - interestingly enough - a three-mile walk last year seemed like SO much walking and it was almost scary to think about.
Now I'm walking/running three to four miles per day (most days (smile)) and am planning to run three miles a day by November. Instead of being anxious I am thinking this is just one less day I have to walk on my stinking treadmill in our dark, semi-dank basement.
Time to charge up the iPod and make a new mix! Suggestions?
