M.I.T.M. #33

Thursday, June 21, 2012


Walked a little more than 2 miles yesterday. This prompted me to do some personal 'deep thoughting'. Fall semester begins 8/14. That's just over 7 weeks from today. I've decided to take a cue from the leader of the SparkMen Team, SanDiegoJohn. He's going to run through the summer. 94 days-at least 1 mile a day-every day until summer ends September 22.
I'm already turtle jogging 1.25 miles, but not everyday. Can I jog a mile everyday, even while on vacation, until school starts?? Right now its a daunting thought. But I did some Yahoo searches and was able to undaunt the thought.
And that became my kick in the arse Goal: starting today 6/21, I begin my mile (at the very least) a day turtle jog.
My Good SparkFriend Peter rides his bike, I dug out my old Specialized trail bike and got bucked me off. Sadly, I had to shoot the bike.

    Maybe you should have consulted the "Bike Whisperer" before putting that poor thing out of its misery ;-). Great goal, we're pulling for you.

    Too bad the bike had to be put down. But a run is a run is a run!

    This is SO cool. I am always so inspired by my fellow Spark buddies, so I really enjoy when something I'm doing helps someone else.

We can do this!

    So much for the bike. But keep up the running, great way to spend the summer. Break down the goal and just look it in little daily chunks, you'll get there.
