yeah, cleats help. I can't stand the treadmill, but I get a lot of mileage just walking around school during the day (I'm a teacher).

After reading your goal and your comments about the ice, I wondered what you do on days when there is a lot of snow or ice in your area. I prefer to walk outside, so I know there will always be days that I have to compromise. This year I plan on getting ice cleats so I can continue walking, but I know when it is too cold I will have to go to the gym.

Just Believe!

I'm aiming for a little less than 2400 miles for the year - walking and running - as measured by my trusty fitbit. A little behind for January, but catching up, and it gets easier for me once the streets aren't so icy.

emoticon ... emoticon Each miles count!

My goal for 2014 is 1500 miles. I did 1437 miles in 2013 so I am up for a little challenge! Plus, if you do the conversion in km, it is 2414 km - that is a good number for 2014! emoticon In my case that is counting my training only... not the distance that I track with fitbit!
I love my fitbit - it is a great way to motivate me to move outside of my training... If you are a fitbit user and want to link with me you can find me at : www.fitbit.com/user/26RGZ6

Go team! GO the Distance!!! emoticon

Age 50! Now is the time to make your mark on the world-explore the Antarctic or become an astronaut. Make your mind up to take on exciting new challenges-straight after your afternoon nap. - Unknown

My main goal is to average 5k or 3.1 miles per day. I believe that is 1825k or 1132 miles. That will be all running. Any walking or bike will be extra. All together I'm working myself across the US. Current stats - just over 20 miles.

Have feet, will travel. emoticon

Hi Team Members!!!

Another year!!!! Let's share here your personal distance goal for 2014!

Tips for the newer members - To set a distance goal for the year, think small. Track for 2 weeks or one month and the do the math!

Note: All distance are welcome - this team goal is your own but sharing helps being accountable... and cheering each other to keep pushing at your own pace!

Just post what distance you are aiming to cover (in km or miles - your preference!)... and the way you intent to do it (i.e. running, walking, cycling, swimming, skating, elliptical... ).

Let's go Team - emoticon
