26 miles on foot this month? Walk or run. Not in under three hours, not in a single day, but over the month. You can do it outdoors, indoors, on the track, on the treadmill, on the elliptical, what ever works for you. You can do a mile per day, or several miles at a time. You can do a multiple marathons over the course of the month if that's more your speed.

Its getting warmer and this is the perfect place to track your miles as you get moving outside. Maybe get ready for that Fun Run or Walk coming up in your community.

Post your mileage in this thread.
I will try to update the tally right here at least every other day.

Keeping it colorful. Here is the color code.
25% red 6.5 miles 10.46 km
50% orange 13 miles 20.92 km
75% pink 19.6 miles 31.54 km
100% green 26.2 miles 42.2 km
100+ purple 27+ miles 43.5+ km
200% blue 52.4 miles 84.4 km

I guess just two of us doing marathon this month. I would call it a competition but I have some things going on in my life that will get in the way of my mileage, so you are likely to win WS&L.

I am embarrassed to say that I usually don't walk to the library. It is 5 blocks by car, but a lot closer to walk. I cut through my neighbor's yard and then through the little park behind the library, which makes it a quarter mile or so, for a half mile round trip. I FEEL SO GREEN. How ridiculous to ever drive there!

Note for month of May: I am moving to the bicycle for my primary source of cardio exercise (with the occasional jog throw in). Therefore I am not going to keep track of miles or marathons this month; it's a fun concept so I hope this thread will continue w/o me.
