I’d like to draw your attention to the sidebar for a minute. Could you look over to the left, please? (If you’re reading this in Bloglines or Google Reader you’re going to need to visit the actual blog to see what I’m talking about.) There’s some really good information there about my life and how I spend my time, as evidenced by the blog buttons. I actually like to think of those buttons as bumper stickers for my blog. There are only 4 buttons right now and, in case you didn’t know, I list them in chronological order according to when the program ends. And once the program ends those buttons are gone forever. ABC Along? Gone as of Monday. 200Sox? Also gone as of Monday. In other words, the buttons that are there are the things I’m currently doing.
This is Rachael’s brilliant idea and I signed up for it just yesterday when I read about it on Maryse’s blog. As the name implies, those joining this have pledged to walk 100 miles by April 1st. That’s a lot of miles but I think I’m up to the challenge. I need to get back to the Y and I clearly need some motivation to do it. And this is going to be my motivation. Actually, this and all of you because I’m hoping you’ll hold me to this commitment.
If I had any doubts about whether I should be doing this or not, well, my new calendar gave me all the confirmation I needed. See, I got to work yesterday and hung up my new Sheep in the Meadow calendar. When I saw the picture for January I knew I was on the right track.
A mile walked with a friend contains only a hundred steps.
I sure hope that’s true because 100 miles is a lot of freakin’ steps. Even with all of you walking with me.
