Dallas, here I come!

Thursday, January 02, 2014

I am well into my new fitness program and couldn't be happier. I have had a fitbit now for just over a year and it has made a world of difference. I originally set a goal for 10 floors a day and am now up to 25 a day. I was at 5 miles a day and now I am up to 7 miles a day! Each year for the last couple of years, I have gone on a virtual walk. The first trip I took was from my home in Michigan to my brother's home in Georgia. It was a total of 722 miles. This year I got my co-workers involved. Each of them picked a place in the continental United States. The winner was drawn out of a plastic bag and ended up being Dallas, Texas. From my house, that is a total of 1185 miles. What will make this trip especially fun is that my co-workers have put a map on our office wall so they can track my progress! That should keep me motivated! Dallas, here I come!

    How do you do a virtual walk? I know others who have done this but never asked.
