Yes, I am signed up. You can also choose a group to belong to, if that applies. I belong to West County Dog Walkers and we have a group listing. There is a little bit of good-natured competition among us which makes it even more fun.

I am definitely in! 100 miles does seem like a whole lot at first, at least for me. But really thinking about it it's less than a mile a day, so I think I might be able to manage it! Like you said, it's great motivation. (I like trophies. A lot. Haha) Are you signed up for this year?

100 Missouri Miles started all over again on January 1. It's easy to record your miles for walking, hiking, running, or biking. The medal you get for your achievement is a large, nice one. A little bit of motivation helps a lot in achieving our exercise goals. And it's free.

Ha Ha Tonka is by just outside of Camdenton, near the dam. I love this place, all year long.

If Ha Ha Tonka is near Bagnell Dam, I hiked it a long time ago. It IS a good one! These days, I am more likely to walk Minnie Ha Ha (southwest St. Louis County).

So far this year I have logged in for a total of 108 miles. My favorite place to walk is at the Ha Ha Tonka State Park.

It's fun. The site works better than it did last year when the program started. It is easy to log the walk or hike that I did that day. I have a nice-sized medal from last year for 100 miles, and I think they are might start giving medals for more miles. Maybe that's just a rumor!

I reached my first 100 walking miles in August. I love the out doors. The weather is cooling off so I got my bike out and ready. Got speedometer to put on it. It sounds like fun .

How's it going?

Our family signed up as a group just the other day. My sister posted the group link on facebook, so I am curious how many family members sign up.

I need to go log my stuff. I haven't read it all, but sis says many outdoor things count, like golf etc also. emoticon And she said you can log backdate also.

Thank goodness I track in my fitness tracker emoticon

A great challenge. MO is a great place for trails and hiking. So many trails and so little time!

It doesn't count the miles before June because the event started in June and it's to count the miles from June on for the challenge. The purpose of this is to get people out in our state parks, trails, etc. this summer from what I understand. Of course if you walk the same path the miles will count, but I think it's fun to see how many different parks, trails you can collect miles on.

I was able to retroactively enter all of my running and walking miles for the month of June. But the site sort of gave me an error message when I tried to enter activities in May. It didn't say I couldn't go back; it just said the date format was wrong (even tho I selected from their pop-up calendar). It doesn't matter, because I'm up to 19 miles already, but I'm curious if folks are able to input their miles prior to 6/1.

Courage comes from the Old French for "heart". To be courageous literally means to do something heart-felt.

I hadn't heard of the challenge, but since I walk 4 plus miles almost every day and other activities, I have probably completed over 6 times already.

This is fantastic!!!!

We really are very fortunate. It is so awesome that almost anyone in the state is never more than 30 - 40 minutes from a state park or conservation area of some kind.

Are any of you participating in the governor's challenge to complete at least 100 miles of activities in Missouri by the end of the year? It includes walking, running, cycling, hiking, paddling, horseback riding, and rolling. Missouri was named the best state for trails; we really do have so many beautiful parks to enjoy. It's something the whole family can do, too. Last night at Father's Day dinner, I got my dad, stepmom and stepbrother to sign up!
