Introducing: Walk With Me

Are you ready to Walk With Me? Walk With Me In case you did not know, I recently ran a 10K in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I’m proud of my accomplishment because I never thought I could run 6.2 miles at the age of 40. I enjoyed the months of training. At the same time, it was rather hard on my knees. And since I’d prefer to walk at age 60 than continue to run at age 40, I decided that I was going to just start walking to keep in shape. I like goals. I like lists that list my goals. I like accomplishing goals and then checking them off my list. That is just the way I roll. So, just like I set a goal to run a 5K before I turned 40 and run a 10K while I was 40, I’ve set a goal to walk 500 miles by December 31, 2011. Today is April 18, 2011 and there are exactly 258 days until the end of the year. Which means that I have to walk 1.94 miles each day. Some days I may walk more, some days less. I may walk in the mornings, I may walk in the evenings. Or both. And I’d like for you to Walk With Me. You may not feel that 500 miles is a goal you can accomplish. That is totally okay. Set your own goal. Maybe it’s a mile a day or a mile a week. Maybe it’s more than 500 miles. Whatever you feel is best for you, set that goal. I will be tracking my progress on my phone with Runkeeper. It’s a great app that tracks your distance, elevation, time, calories, average pace and average speed. And it’s free! It will take some effort to keep walking. I know it will. But, I’m determined to keep in shape somehow. Not only that, but what an awesome opportunity to pray as I walk or walk with a friend I need to connect with. So, will you join me? Will you Walk With Me?

  1. Where we are stationed, we are trying to walk, ride, bike, etc. all the way to Afghanistan and back to support our soldiers. As a unit, we are working to go 3200 miles in 12 months. I love this idea! Keep walk Cindy! I promise to do my part whether I walk, run or cycle!

  2. 🙂 Glad you have goals my friend! I am totally in… I think you should look into a Crossfit gym near you. It may be a bit of cashola, but so worth it! I have been doing it for a year now and am in the best shape since I played! And I love it! I love the attitude and the vibe… All positive and uplifting! You may think you can’t do it, but a few months in and you are accomplishing things you never thought you could! LIKE PULLUPS!!! 🙂

  3. Cindy,

  4. Hey sister! I am going to do this with you! You are such an inspiration! Thank you! Downloaded the app and away we go! I will keep my progress on my blog, twitter and Facebook! It is so pretty outside now, perfect time to go and walk!
