Default I made it six miles!

After being stuck inside for a few days with a terrible cold, I decided to take advantage of the beautiful day and walk on a trail that starts near my house.

I ended up walking six miles (the trail actually said 8, but based on the distance between my house and where I ended up, I think it was 6). The last mile on the way home was tough, but I'm proud that I even made it. I'm not sure I've ever walked that far.

congrats. i've walked 5 miles...not 6 yet. with all the rain in ga i'm glad the sun is back out. walking outside is way better than the treadmill. the treadmill is so boring.

Thanks so much, everyone!

And rookietrader, I was so happy to have sunshine all day yesterday finally. Hopefully we'll get some more of it along with the fall temperatures.

6 miles is AWESOME.... especially at 289. I remember walking back then and 2-4 miles and I was spent! Keep at it you'll be amazed at what you can do down the road.
