In 2013 I walked across America. It’s 2017 and in my last blog, (“Walking with Jim…REALLY?”), I invited everyone to walk with me this year. I am recording my miles daily and posting them on a blog every Monday in 2017. Here’s how you can walk with me:
- When you walk, record your miles through a pedometer, MapMyWalk, or any other tool you use.
- Reply to me through Leave A Reply to my weekly blog with the total miles you walked for the week. (You’ll find Leave A Reply at the bottom of my blog.)
- I’ll keep track of my miles plus yours and give you an update weekly on my Monday blog of OUR TOTAL WALKING MILES!!
My total miles for January 1-8 were 29.4. It’s not far, but it’s a start. However, with you recording your miles and telling friends to join “Walking with Jim,” we will cover a lot more ground. So far, I’m not even out of the Los Angeles Basin. I need your help, so sign up by replying each week and get your friends walking, too. Who knows? We might even walk across America in 2017…or go even farther…TOGETHER!
This will be fun…to see how far we can walk together in a week, month or one year. Plus, it will help all of us to keep walking with the motivation that we are not walking alone. In future blogs, I’ll share some of the blessings I receive from walking. (Be sure to sign up to follow the blog so that you will receive notification on posted blogs.) I want you and your friends to have those same blessings.
Walking with Jim
