Good luck. I decided to try to get at least five miles walking in a day starting back on May 7th and, surprisingly, haven’t missed yet. I’m at about 2100 miles after nine months. Running is whole other ballgame.

There was this woman in Lansdale I used to see walking every single day in the morning on my way to work and again on my way home. My wife once caught up with her and learned that she walked eight miles at a stretch, three times a day. That's 8760 miles a year.

I've been boxing for about five months now, and I took my first really good shot tonight across the head. Looking forward to my safe 9-5 finance job.

No specific goal, but if my running progresses as I expect, I'm hoping I'll be able to do a 1:30 half marathon this fall. Might give the marathon another try.
