I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker. - Helen Keller
Don't look at life as "you have to," view it as "you get to." It puts the fun back in things.

I have been doing "sporadic" walking because my doctor said that walking would help to control diabetes. My long term goal is to get off meds. But to do that I MUST walk everyday. Short term is to do a 5K walk.
And so, today I am walking the treadmill for 10mins (without stopping) twice a day. The plan is to work up to 15 min straight x2/day. Then on Monday 8/15 I will begin the training plan for the 5K Walk Your Way Plan. My race is scheduled for Sept 17
