Walking to Mom's house in a year challenge -- Day 1

Monday, August 11, 2014

One thing my lack of progress this year has taught me, is that I work best with a clear measurable goal. Last year, it was walking in my first 5k. Now I don't know how much of a walk it takes to get to your Mom's house, but according to Google maps, my Mom is 1,044 miles away. Walking six days per week, I'll need to walk about 3.4 miles per day to reach her by this time next year.

Just to add a little motivation, I'm going to throw a dollar for each mile I complete into an envelope, and when I'm done, I'm going to take the wife to Florida to visit.

So here's where I start:

That's my street. It's not pretty, but it's home. Since the walk is virtual, I'll try to gather a shot from along the way to see what each destination would look like if I were really there.
