#GoTheDist: February 2016

Much like I had a mega day in January 2016 and February 2015, I had one in February 2016. A 30K day, to be exact. That helped me counter a few lower days and one 1500 step day (sick day). Thanks to that day, February went gangbusters. February 2016 totals: 313,153 steps 128.84 miles walked […]


January in steps, miles and pages

So there must be something about an end of month rush. Last year at the end of February I did a mad dash of exploring NYC and yesterday? More of the same.  I needed 14K for my stretch goal and came home with 16K January, you were amazing. 301,695 steps 124.2 miles walked 85.14 miles […]


#GoTheDist 2016

wasn’t I just writing out the goals for 2015? For more reasons than this challenge, this year has gone by in a flash. It’s somewhat bizarre to be writing up 2016 goals before wrapping 2015 but a) I’m traveling for the next two days and b) I’ve already been overthinking 2016 way too much. I […]


Confessions of a Designated Fat Taxi Driver?

aka a two-in-one review because I started and finished two books in the last three days Confessions of a New York Taxi Driver by Eugene Salomon and Jennifer Joyner’s Designated Fat Girl. Two very different subjects but the right level of reading depth I was in the mood for this weekend. I started with Joyner’s […]


mini goals met

Who says a  week of sloth at the beach isn’t a wonderful thing. Sometime during the week I: destroyed my 2014 reading goal. At 52 as of today with one in the works and other likely to come. And then 7 unfinished. Good run in 2014. Miles: beat my personal and #GoTheDist Q4 goals, My […]


#GoTheDist 2014: November

Skin of my teeth. My tiered goals for November were: 250/275/300K steps and 100 miles. November totals*? 255,599 steps and 105.71 miles. Never stressed so hard for 250, although July was close. But I did it. Thanks to some temperate weather days. *Subject to minor additions as I putter around the apartment Totals for Q4 […]


#GoTheDist: October 2014

sometimes I swear 31-day months are harder to get steps in than 30 day months. I think it definitely has to do with the perceived cushion of the extra day. Final numbers: 301,135 steps 124.04 miles walked Whee! It wasn’t easy. I set a mini goal of not ever falling on the wrong side of […]


#GoTheDist 2014: Q3 down

where on earth has 2014 gone. Seriously. Q3 goals: 850,000 steps 375 miles walked 35 miles biked September  totals 316,214 steps 136.02 miles walked 4.4 miles biked Q3  totals: 887,280 steps 370.75 miles walked 28.96 miles biked That’s not bad at all. I didn’t realize I was ultimately so close to the mileage, but I’m […]


#GoTheDist 3.2

or nearly… I’ve finally found the sweet spot between my #GoTheDist goal being a challenge, but an attainable one. I knew that July would be bad, and it was. But I set two goals and I made one of two. The goal was 250K steps and I ended up with 260,908. Mileage goal was 117 […]


#GoTheDist Q2 nearly went
