Arrow Coast to Coast Challenge....SIGN-UP

Love to walk? Don't love it but you are doing it anyways ? Up for a challenge?

JOIN US IN THE COAST TO COAST CHALLENGE

A group of started with the "March of the Chicks" challenge as we tried to meet a collective goal of 1 million steps. We met that goal last week

Now. we want to collectively log enough steps/miles to walk "virtually, through the magic of computers" across the US, via Interstate I-90. We'll start near Boston, MA in a little town called Hopedale and we'll walk our way to Seattle, Washington. As we pass through an area that our fellow chicks live near, we'll invite them to share a little about it. If we get the technology thing down, we can post pictures of the area, too.

Since we all have a different stride length we've settled on a standard of 10K steps equaling 5 miles.

There a bit of planning left, so the plan is to start Saturday, March 25th. Hopedale's an very interesting little town, and I'll post a little about that too.

If you'd like to join in, please add a post signing up hear and then we will start walking/logging on Saturday. I will establish a separate thread then. To make the tracking easier.

Join us, won't you.
I still have a bit of mapping to go, but we

Yay, Lena you are the first to sign-up, or second I guess . I e-mailed the moderator for the exercise forum and asked her to sticky this thread.

This should be fun, I can't wait to get my new sneakers and pedometer this weekend.

Walk with you soon

HI
I would love to go on this stroll with all of you across the country. It sounds like a lot of fun.

I better dust off my walking shoes.

Thanks for the welcome. I am looking forward to the exercise as much as I am to the geography lessons and friendship.
