Tuesday, May 05, 2015      3 comments

Well, due to a sore knee, and lots of rain this past week, I didn't make it as far as I wanted to on my virtual walk across America. I only logged a little over 7 miles which put me just about a mile and a half outside of Charles City, VA - rig... Read more

Heart health and history on this virtual walk!

Well, I passed the Chickahominy River and am now on my way to Charles City, VA. Since I have about 7 miles to go to get there, I figured I would read up on this interesting place. It is small - at the 2010 census, there were 133 residents in the... Read more

Week 3 of my virtual walk across America

Saturday, March 21, 2015      3 comments

My pedometer said I walked 9.1 miles this week. That's a little more than last week, but I'll take it! I kept my toddler granddaughter this past week for a few days and boy was she busy. That's probably why I logged a few more miles. Anyway... Read more

Well, it took a week, but I've walked 10 miles. I'm only 3 miles from Williamsburg on the Trans American walk. While it doesn't seem like much, it is a big deal to me since I get short of breath and have angina attacks with little to no exertio... Read more

Friday, March 13, 2015      3 comments

Thankfully the weather has broken and the long icy winter is almost history. I say almost because that old March winter lion could easily gobble up the March lamb at any time. We've even had snow for Mother's Day here. Oh well. That won't... Read more
