I went back and searched through the threads and found the original post that Gary (EZ Money) started in 2009--But the post that shows through all his support was in 2011--- thought it would be nice to have it here to remind us of the motivation he gave to us all!! I'll always remember him and his humor and caring posts! SHOOT!! the Smileys didn't come through!
"Post it here if you want to set a goal of 1,000 miles in 2011
Doesn't matter if you walk or run it swim it bike it treadmill it or even scooter it....
it's EZ Less than 2.75 miles a day....even if you take a day off each week it's only a 5K (3.2 miles) a day....the important thing is that you do get out there and off that couch or out of that chair
heck, take a day off each week, give me 3 miles and I'll give you the .2 miles if you park further away at the grocery store, take the stairs, etc.....you know the drill.
Ok, so I have set this goal 3 years in a row now and haven't accomplished it .....but I have recorded 2,181 miles in the last 3 years....works out to an average of over 725 miles each year
Reaching the goal is important but it isn't the defining moment of my journey
that would be the effort I put into reaching it My effort has been about 75%....
as you can see from my miles
Have a great year on the journey to your goals"
THANK YOU SO MUCH for posting this!!!! i needed to hear this.
