I also will join in on 1000 miles in 2013! Thanks for starting this thread up and I know EZ will be very HAPPY that we are carrying this on into the new year! I had hoped to get started today but have that nasty cold bug that is going around... will get started in the next couple days though!

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.” ~
I'd like to give it a try. I walk/run 10-12 miles a week, but I wanna try to walk a couple miles on days I don't run. If I add 7-8 miles a week, that'd get me to 1000. Mostly I sit on the couch on winter days I don't run. In summer I sometimes bike on 'off' days. But having this goal will get me out there walking I am sure. BTW, roughly how far is 10,000 steps?
This will certainly be a challenge. I did want to clock up 500 miles as one of my goals for the year but challenging myself too 1,000 sounds pretty amazing too. I need to start getting back into walking soon. During the summer I was walking 5 miles a day for a good few weeks. Now I'm back at college and the evenings are dark and dull, I stopped and use my stepper at home. I read somewhere that 2000 steps would be the same as one mile which I would do when I'm using it. I've exams starting tomorrow for a week and a half. Then I've two weeks off where I want to kick start these 1,000 miles outside as well as what I get with the stepper. Can't wait for the long evenings to return. Sum, I watched the 2012 thread and you are such an inspiration! Good luck everyone this year clocking up the 1,000 miles.
I am pretty old (57) but started jogging last spring. I can run 2 or 3 miles at a time, but I should not do it every day, so I try to ride my bike on the days I don't run.
It's a challenge for me to run 30 miles a month because I teach school and I'm in two orchestras and a bluegrass group, so lots of evenings are taken up with practice or performance. But if I combine the running miles with some biking miles, maybe I can do this.
