Knitting, Dogs and More: Walk With Me! Talk With Me!

Walk With Me! Talk With Me!

Year before last I entered the Iditawalk. Simple enough, just walk 30 minutes a day for 35 days between February 1, 2006 to March 18, 2006 for a total of 1049 minutes. The 1049 minutes represent the 1049 miles of the Iditarod sled race. I signed up last year too but didn't walk enough to get the T-shirt and leash. I decided this year I would try to get as many of my friends as possible to join me. You do pay a donation which goes to a fundraiser for a Boy Scout Troup in Nome AK. Pretty smart idea for a fund raiser! There was a time, many moons ago, when I trained and successfully walked the Avon 3 Day (2000). I LOVED being in such good shape. It takes a LOT of time to walk THAT much though. Thirty minutes sounds more my speed now.

That's the first I've heard of this. It is a great idea. I have slacked off so much on my walking...

Wish I had the extra $$ what great incentive to get out and walk!!
Just had my Boston puppy to the vet and she's a tad overweight and could use the excerise too!
