Oregon Coast is a geographical term that is used to describe the coast of the U.S. state of Oregon along the Pacific Ocean. Stretching 362 miles (583 km) from the city of Astoria to the California border, the Oregon Coast is unique in that the entire coast is public land. Oregon law prohibits private ownership of coastline property.
The Oregon Coast is often divided into three regions:
The North Coast—from the Washington border at Astoria to Lincoln City
The Central Coast—from Lincoln City to Reedsport
The South Coast—from Reedsport to the California border, just south of Brookings
Is everyone ready to start our VIRTUAL WALK on May 1st? We will be starting at the northern most point on the Oregon Map, or at Highway 101, and take a short side trip to Fort Stevens and (I believe) the South Jetty. Our Walk will take us from Astoria to Brookings and we will make "stops" to do a little exploring and history of the towns along the way....from Astoria to Brookings is 287 miles. I will set up a thread for you to post your miles each day and keep track of how far we go. We will add 6-8 miles to do some "sight-seeing"....at Fort Stevens and I hope to have input from those of you who are familiar with the places we go to and through.
As we do this...there some options for those of you who are limited in your ability to walk...I will post them here and also add a link or two...to help you count other activities.
These exercises (we will call them the "tri") are good for 1 mile...every time you do them...a total of 15 minutes time.
You can get miles doing any kind of cardio that can be converted to miles or even just by wearing your pedometer and converting your steps to miles. If you need help with the conversions, there is a web site that might help at the following link: walking.about.com/od/measure/a/stepequival
Here are some exercises to try if you are unable to do traditional exercises. This article includes a list of seated exercises and a list of exercises that can be modified.
I don't know why the link didn't work here, but I found it in my favorites and added it to the leader selected favorites on the right hand side of the team page. Click on that and you will find an article by Coach Nicole and several links that will work.

It's foolish to ask God to direct your steps, if you aren't willing to move your feet.
