Anette, great goal! I am trying to (slowly!) walk across the USA, from upstate New York to Albuquerque, New Mexico (where my oldest son just went back to college). So far, about 167 miles walked...... it's going to take awhile!!

Posting to update my stats. It is nearly the end of 2010 and I have walked so far a a little over 188k.

My estimated pace is 20k / week during the winter, while I combine walking on the treadmill with other workouts.
When the weather permits again, and I focus on outdoor training again, my mileage will rise again, but even if I keep this moderate pace, I am designed to "arrive" in Paris by the end of 2011.

And may I say once again that this has been probably the best original idea I have found on Spark in 2010? :-)

Now lets walk and rock 2011!¨

Cheers, Anette!

My walk was from home (southern Illinois) to Key West, Florida! I had a lot of fun doing it with Google Maps!

Wow! That's so inspiring! Thank you for the support!

I plan to buy a treadmill when the winter gets here, to be able to walk without worrying about the cold and the snow.

My plan is to walk the weight off and reach Paris till next summer, I even though about walking the last four miles "for real", already there.

Spark on!

As a girl from Central Europe, my goal is to walk the 1085k to Paris. In a year.

By finding this group, I felt all the motivational pieces falling into place.

I don't hesitate to put my sneakers on now and go walking, because every kilometer walked is a kilometer walked towards the most beautiful city in the world!

I am so happy that I found this group!
