Well I wanted to make it to Johannesburg for the World Conference in July. Somehow I do not think that is going to happen. We will just keep going and we will get there. Better late than never

OK. I am ready to join. I need to do something to get my fitness back on track. I was doing so great after Christmas - went on a Disney Cruise in Feb and then immediately came home to cookie sales and did that non-stop for 3 weeks. Now all the numbers are done, the prizes ordered and no more excuses!

And since I live SO close to the Juliete Gordon Low birthplace, it will take me a long time to catch you guys! But I would like to join all the same. I will post weekly so that it does not fill up this blog.

Had the pleasure of going to Altanta 3 years ago for a business trip with a rental car and unlimited mileage. I was there for 3 weeks so I took one weekend and drove down to Savannah and saw where it all started. What an amazingly beautiful house, town and history. It was soo cool!

Okay, it's about 550 miles from where I live in Ohio to Savannah. So I've walked six of those. At about 3 miles a day, it will take me about 183 days to get there. That's about how fast pioneers in Conastoga Wagons made it across the country some days. I'm walking this afternoon, so I'll get back to you. Anne

Hi! I'm Anne, and I've met a couple of you on other topic pages. I'm a Girl Scout leader from Ohio, and a Boy Scout Venture Crew Co-adviser, and Wolf Cub Den Leader, too. (Okay, so now you all know I'm a pushover.) Anyway, I'll start this walk to the Birthplace. Actually took my troop there two summers ago...but we didn't walk! Not sure tonight how many miles from here. I'll never catch you guys! But look out, I'm coming up from behind! Anne

Ok so I am back on track, I have changed to public transport to get to and from work and Have to walk 2km everyday from where the bus drops me to my DH work, SO I get in my exercise with no excuses AND I will save almost R5000 this year. Seems like a win win situation to me.

Ladies,

I am so sorry that I haven't been posting. I have been trying to post in so many different places that I keep forgetting where all I need to post. I'm really sorry for that. I'm making a list now so that I don't forget anyone from now on.

Take Care,
Shell

Don't worry I haven't been walking either, have worked every evening since Friday and the whole weekend, have managed a few minutes in the pool though so have done some water jogging, I suppose that is something.
Its just started raining but I am not going to use that as an excuse, I am going to get wet in the pool anyway so I may as well do some jogging in the pool when I get home
Keep on Sparking we can do this

OK, I am bad (no excuse we had a beautiful weekend) - I haven't walked. But I DID buy a pedometer so I could measure my walks - it's even one of the pink ribbon ones, so I helped support cancer research.

Ok, I copied the instuctions from the challenge on another board (just in case some one new wants to join) and modified to fit our walk. I will post another message to start the thread. Although the other spark team only posts numbers, I think it would be easier for us to use the titles, at least for a while. Happy walking!

Each person who wants to participate will choose their distance to "walk to the birthplace". This is YOUR goal! It doesn't even have to be based on the number of miles to Savannah. Once you have chosen your goal, you can post it here, and every day you will post your progress.

How to post:
Each person will post their goal here on this board every day (or ASAP). When you post your name, please try to keep all names in alphabetical order so everyone can find their names easily to post next time! Each day you will copy and paste the last post to a new post, updating your progress.

Your progress will look like this:

number of miles/km in goal/ distance done today/ distance done so far

So for me, my numbers are 975/1/0. If I do 2 miles today it will look like this:
975 / 2 / 3 showing that my goal is 975 miles, I've done 2 miles today, 3 miles in total.

Each person adds their information to the list in alphabetical order so it's easier to find their name the next day. When you report for the day, you copy and paste the most recent list and then just update your stats.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!



One day at a time . . .

Hi all, I am kind of late jumping in. We had some family illness so I stopped doing sparkpeople (and gained weight). Anyway, i am back now, with a goal of losing 10 pounds for lent. I was thinking it might be neat to use the format they use on one of the other team pages. They have a message with each person's name, then their goal distance, their amt that day, and far they are. They put their names in alphabetical order, and copy the previous message in. Here's an example:
amy goal 1000 miles/2 today/26 to date
mandykaye goal 975/1 today/974 to date
In the other group they don't put labels, just numbers but I think this would be easier. Anyway if you like the idea, I (or one of you) can start a new message and get it going. In case you haven't figured out, it's 975 miles from my hometown to Savannah. With the amount I walk, it's going to take me years to get there, but maybe I can highlight stops in between . . . say a virtual mint julip at Pat O'Brians in New Orleans?

One day at a time . . .

No walking this weekend, I am feeling really bummed about that.
Between the fact that I had to work and we have had powercuts courtesy of "Load shedding" I could not fit my walks in BUT this is a new week and it can only get better
Keep it up Shell

OK, walked 3,2km this morning
TOTAL 6,4km
The walking thing is getting me down BUT this is a great motivator to keep going. My DH thinks we are nuts "walking" to somewhere we will never go but I think its great.
How is everyone else going? Come on everyone, you set your own goal just start NOW

I say we come up with our own goal of how far to walk and how to track it. Just make it challenging.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

Nobody else expressed much interest in it. I'm game if you are. I was going to use 15 minutes of exercise as a mile. I need to come up with an amount of miles that I think I can do. Or I can count each minute as a mile. I have to do a little figuring to see how to work that. It's a lot of miles from Iowa.

Yes, you track your miles. Walk till you walk far enough to make it to your destination.

How does the virtual walk work? I'm guessing that you keep track of how far you walk until to reach a goal distance. Is that right? Is there more to it?

That sounds very fair and reasonable. Great idea. I want to go get a pedometer today at lunch so I can track my steps.

We could all pick a spot to start from . . . where the Pilgrims landed, where our last National conference was, etc.

One day at a time . . .

A virtual walk to Savannah is a great idea! Not sure how to work the mileage differences though. It's 1,130 miles for me from Vermont.
When I get there, I think I'll just keep on going until I get to Disney World. I have a LOT of pounds to lose!

I hear a lot about virtual walks. I even came across a GS event that was a virtual walk from their council to Savannah. So I was trying to figure out how we could do a virtual walk to Savannah. But we all live different distances, especially Kanga. Do you have any ideas on how we can all walk to Savannah?
