I enjoy walking and always have. While walking around town only a few miles from home, I can daydream for hours and escape to far away places. I can get away and be alone with my thoughts.
In 2010, I decided to walk with a purpose and I set a goal to walk 25,000 miles over 10 years. Why 25,000 miles? I was thirty-four years old and decided I would walk 2 miles for each day I had been alive.
34 X 365 X 2 = 24,820
Then, I rounded up figuring that would make up for leap years plus a few more extra days.
Today begins a life changing experience as I experiment with new ways to share my stories. I have shared some of my experiences via facebook and Twitter. When I accomplish my 25,000-mile goal, I will be a completely different person in ways that I cannot yet imagine. I know I will become a better person after this challenge.
So far I have walked 540 miles. I have a long way to go. I hope you will walk & talk with me.
