My 400 mile walking partners…and 2012 challenge…

My walking pals

Michele and Pam joined me in January for a goal of walking 400 miles in 2011.  I walked almost 650 miles Pam walked better then 870 and I’m not sure the exact number for Michele but she’s way up past the 400 miles also. We did great and I am very proud of Pam and Michele for joining me in this challenge. It was a great way to really kick my life style journey off and to keep me accountable all year long. Thank you both Michele and Pam for joining me.

*****************************************************************************************

Now I will have a new goal for 2012….anyone want to join me? Here it is…

Running goal for 2012

It works out to 12.5 miles a week. It is a goal that will really take some commitment for me but I so want to become a runner in 2012 so I am going to try my very best. As my practice gets going maybe it’ll become easier but I know for the first few months it will really in hard.

So again, thank you to Pam and Michele for this years help and commitment and support. I so appreciated it.

Take care my friends and have a blessed day!!

Good luck, Julie. I know you can do it. I'm afraid I can't run because of my hips and knees but I will be with you in spirit. :)

I´m not a runner, but I´ll be cheering you on. Maybe Pam will join you too. I read she is jogging now. Unbelievable!

I'm not going to be joining you, but I love the idea of striving for a yearly fitness goal. I'm going to put some thought into creating one of my own! Thanks for the inspiration, and good luck <3

Julie,
Great idea and way to go on smashing last year's goal.
I'm in for a challenge but as 2011's was about 25km running, I'm going for a lower goal total - 520km. (323 miles).

I love this goal Julie! I'm not a proper runner yet, so I have set a goal for myself of 500 miles "traveled". Running, walking, biking, etc. Everything counts! I will be cheering you on though, you can totally do this!
