1000 Miles In 2014
 
I almost met my walking goal of 1000 miles for 2013, I may be 20 miles short.

I am challenging myself to walk 1000 miles in 2014.

Who wants to join me? I don't care how you accumulate your miles. Let's get moving!!

Remember to reach 1,000 all we need is to average little less than 2.75 miles a day. Very doable!

I'm trying to move more so this seems like the perfect challenge for me.

I'm going to be travelling for 2 months straight (May-July) so it'll be interesting, there'll be days where that'll help me and definitely days where it'll be difficult. But it can't hurt to try.

I would love to do 1000 miles in 2014! Count me in!

I will try for 25 miles per week. Here we go!

Week 1 (Jan 1- Jan 7): 17.5/25
Week 2 (Jan 8 - Jan 14): 15/25

kailpea 12-27-2013 10:45 PM

I'll definitely try this in 2014!

Sum38 12-28-2013 09:04 AM

Nice to have you on board ladies!

I had a bad start, last year Changergirl. I essentially did not walk for the first 3 months, and I am still managing to get to nearly 1000 miles :) -- Do your best and biking counts too :)

fadedbluejeans 12-28-2013 09:24 AM

I'll try! I got a fitbit flex for Christmas so tracking steps is pretty easy. <famous last words, lol>

I'm in. :). I did so well last year losing weight. Then I stopped so I am going to update my profile. And hopefully start losing this weight again

CourtneyDaisey 12-28-2013 09:15 PM

Count me in folks! :) My husband and I joined a gym and will be able to use the treadmills and ellipticals as well as taking the dogs out for a walk. This will be a fun way to track miles walked.

Karen31 12-29-2013 12:31 PM

I really want to try this again! Absolutely no reason that I can't get it done.. Need to move more!

Karen31 12-29-2013 12:44 PM

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"
