Since it is raining pretty hard this morning and I know I won't get out to walk on Monday or Tuesday, 1018 if my final milage total for the year. I am pretty happy with that!
I'd like to say 2014 is going to show some nice percentage of a jump over this years total, but unless something happens, like I retire or lose my job, I just don't see having more time then I already spend on the walking path.
Walking season as I call it is full time once the time changes in March. The light cracks the sky early enough that I can get in my 6 mile walks before going to work. The Rangers don't mind us walkers/runner getting out a little before dark...say 30 minutes...but they don't want people out there in the dark much before that, so I can start the walks at 5am as the first hints of light are at 5:30AM. It's just too darn hot to do that after work anymore
So what does 1018 represent? Using 17 minutes as a average mile.... 17,306 minutes, or 288 hours, or 12 days...and most of that is compressed in to 8 months. Next year I'll try to remember to note my milages when the time changes in March and Nov.
I hope everybody has a great New Year and you are able to reach all of the goals you set. As for me, I'll see if I can bump it up to 1100 miles. I can find 10% more.
