I'm still walking across America...

Sunday, January 20, 2013

I got an e-mail this week letting me know that I had just crossed into Kansas. WooHoo.


Your total mileage of 1535.4 mi now puts you in the state of KS on the TransAmerica trail."

I belong to the SparkPeople Team Virtual Walk/Run/Cycle thru US @ exercise.lbl.gov. When you join the SP team, you can click on the display map and get to the sign up for the free virtual fitness trail across the country from Virginia to Oregon. Try it. You might like it too.

Spread the Spark. Enjoy the Journey.

UPDATE: NOTE FROM Virtual Walk/Run/Cycle thru US @ exercise.lbl.gov:
CONGRATS you made it to Kansas on your transcontinental virtual trip across the United States from Yorktown, Virginia to Florence, Oregon! Reinforce your own healthy lifestyle and help support the team by entering your mileage and sharing your progress on the group pages. Join us! Be seeing you on the road!

UPDATE to RitaRose and anyone else who might want to join in...

Thanks for commenting on my Virtual Walk Across America blog. You can do a search for the Spark Team for this under the COMMUNITY Tab in the header. Click on Spark Teams.

Then, do a search by putting the team name in the Search box. Click search. Type in the Search box: Virtual Walk/Run/Bike Across America. Results come up listing teams from the most members to the fewest. The Virtual Walk team has 555 members, so scroll to the bottom of the page and click for page 2. Scroll down to the Virtual Walk team and click on the red Join Now button.

Or, I just figured out that I can send an Invitation to join the team. So, I just did. I hope you join and have fun too!! Send me a request and I'll send a Virtual Walk invite.

    This sounds like lots of fun. I don't quite get it, but I think I'd be motivated to get an email like you did!

    its way interesting Tudi - and welcome to Kansas.. you are making better progress than I - been at it 2 years and am Colorado.. maybe you'll pass me on the trail...
    its open to anyone who signs up whether on the SP team or not - I can't imagine what it took for them to take all those photos every tenth of a mile but it makes it all the more interesting for us..

    Congrats on your walk!

    I really loved this but quit after several times of not being able to get in to the site.
    I think I was about where you are.
